Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. I searched google and found http://techreport.co...00/index.x?pg=1 This identifies the
nVidia Geforce 6200 as a PCI card that should work in any of your available PCI slots. However, to make it work you will first have to go into the bios and disable the on board video. There may be a place in your bios to enable AGP video, but keep in mind, this is not a AGP card, it is a PCI card. PCI slots are usually just plug and play. There may or may not be a requirement to enable PCI video in your bios. Check it carefully.

If you choose to install the new video card, make sure you have the current driver for it. Then be aware you should do the following: Then go to http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get Driver Cleaner (it is free). Then go to add/remove programs and remove the current vidoe driver. Then boot into safe mode and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. Then re-boot and install the current driver.

When you ask if this card is "good" my answer is this: It will easilly be able to do most anything you want it to, including most games. But newer, higher end games probably won't work with this card. But of course, if you don't plan on using this card for gaming, then you're good to go!
