Default 6200 to 6600(GT) softmodding/OCing

Thinking of buying a new vidcard, though, it should cost to much. I was first thinking of buying a 6600GT card, but now I read almost all 6200 can be softmodded/OCed to a 6600(GT)!

Would be great ofcourse, since those cards cost half as much!




You guys think I make a fair chance of transfering this card?
MSI NX6200AX-TD128 AGP Geforce 6200 128Mb DDR

It would cost me about €65 <> €150 for a 6600GT



Which cards have bigger chances of being softmoddable to 6600(GT):
- normal 6200
- 6200 with TurboCache
?

Don't even think of touching the TurboCache 6200, it sucks. I'm very satisifed with my Normal 6200.

Does 19,000 3Dmark01; ~7000 3Dmark03; 3,000 3Dmark05 and about 68 FPS Doom3 @medium. Although 6600GT in the U.S. can now be had for ~$145 while the 6200 is <$80.

Prolly AGP, as I don't want to spend money on PCIe hardware YET (mobo, cpu,...)

For AGP, buy a 2nd hand 9800Pro, like I did and update BIOS to 9800XT if it is R360 core.

Is the performance difference that big?

A 9800Pro 2nd hand still costs more here than a new 6200.
A 6200 is standard passive cooled => quiet.

How about power usage? Can I suppose a 6200 uses (much) less power? (numbers?)

Not to forget I can get a 6200 pronto, while finding a 9800 at a decent price may take some time...

And most important: didn't have much luck the last times I bought second hand vidcards




I think my mind is pretty much made up, but if I'm wrong, please correct me!

Never buy from gamers
Dell, HP OEM cards are normally good to very good. I can't say much about the AGP version 6200, I don't know.

Never buy in a hurry

Get a 6800le, if your lucky you can unlock the pipelines to 16/6.
