    You might've gotten an unlucky one with bad locked pipelines, etc.

    It's still a risk, but either way the 9800 SE should easily outperform the 6200 without taking a look back even at stock. You don't really need to unlock it though.

    Besides, in most games that utilize SM3.0 the 6200 would probably get sub-20's in FPS.

    Don't get so angry because you had a 9200 SE that performed like **** either way. :noob:

      I'll say it once more. NEVER get the SE cards.

        If you want a little system as a second system, (not for gaming), i suggest the Mac mini aswell

        http://apple.com/macmini

        Now, if you want a quick system, eMachines' high end system, is about $600, all you need in it is a better video card and a ram upgrade maybe.

          I've got a nice system that I could part with for a reasonable price. It's a Barton 3200+ with an Aerocool dualfan heatpipe, GA-7N400 Pro2 mobo, 1GB of Mushkin Blue ram, 120 GB SATA HDD, Radeon 9600 XT, 48X CDRW, and Audigy LS all wrapped up in a nice looking windowed case, replete with lots of lighted fans, etc...

          If anyone is interested, PM me.

          Fixed.

                    ::EDIT::: fixed url tags, and rechecked the links. turns out the memory hit a price drop. now the total is $585.

                      chimbaktu, the "links" to your components is actually one big link. You might wanna edit that.

                          actually, with a 6600 i was thinking about going with this quantum case for $110 with this thermaltake 480W PSU. that would add about $100 to the total. but i strong PSU and durable case with good airflow would be worth it.
