Thanks, nanoukmetal. Power Supply requirement for a system using the EVGA GeForce 6200 is 300 watts. We have the graphics card in hand and plan to install it this morning. Will try to delete or verify deletion of all other graphics drivers before installing the GeForce software. (I also downloaded the latest nVidia driver for the 6200, which is version 275.33.) But we will go with the supplied software to start, which is EVGA version 09-963-50-1. I don't understand the difference in numbering systems, but going to the EVGA website shows the same driver version as nVidia's for the latest software update.
Radeon HD4650 is out, GeForce 6200 is in. Windows did like both the GeForce card and its software (i.e. it will start up and display 640 x 480 with no error messages). But now, there's a new problem. In 'Device Manager/Display Adapters', the 6200 software came up with an exclamation point. Enabling the 6200 results in a message "There are not enough free resources to operate this device" (or equivalent). Windows Help suggests turning off devices to free up resources. Trouble is, I have no idea what resources it needs, therefore no idea what devices to turn off. And there are quite a few.
Incidentally, the BIOS setup instructions for the Advanced Chipset page seem in error. The "Init Display (PCI Slot)" option is not right... results in a blank screen. The "On Board/AGP" option should be checked (both the ATI and GeForce cards are AGP in this computer).
What 'Resources' need to be 'freed up' for the card to have proper settability?
Agreed, if we intended to go further. But wife has had it after problems with both the Radeon and the newer GeForce 6200... different problems but all frustrating. She decided to pull out the card(s) and return them and go back to the on-board video. There were just too many problems... but thanks for your help!
First 3 items 'was' condition was as original, never before changed. 4th item had been changed from OEM 'On Board/AGP' to 'PCI Slot,' but that gave a black screen when the EVGA board was in the computer.
3rd item was changed to '256' on advice of EVGA forum moderator, even though the 865G manual says "We recommend that you leave this item at the default value."
As the result of that final BIOS configuration, the EVGA GeForce 6200 works perfectly. Now all the previous artifacts in Uru are gone, and they were really bad running under the latest Intel Extreme driver. We now have a working DVI interface, Relto's roof stays on (didn't before), wife's avatar stays fully clothed instead of constantly turning into a "ghost," pavement does not suddenly disappear, and perhaps most importantly, whenever wife is transferred back to Relto, the game doesn't crash anymore.
Thanks for the help... the whole thing seems to have been a BIOS misconfiguration problem.
