I have a dell dimension 8200
1.7 mhz pentium 4 with a gig of ram, 2x/4x agp port with a geoforce2 mx 64mb's.
I am looking to upgrade the video card. Since this is the last upgrade I dont want anything too fancy (i.e. expensive) and basically anything i put is going to be better then my old video card. I want to stay with nvidia based cards if I can.
which one of these cards would be best for my system? I dont know much about video cards or video card companies. Basically all of these fall into my price range. If you can think of anything better let me know. Thank you.

XFX GeForce 6200 512MB
BIOSTAR V6802XA16 GeForce 6800XT 128MB
SAPPHIRE 100175L Radeon X1650PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2
Diablotek GeForce 6600 GT (256 MB)

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

I would go with the X1650 pro. That is far by the best card. The 6800XT is the next best, but if that's the 128mb, 64-bit version, it is much slower.
