I have an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro, dual heads, 8X AGP card that is going back. The mobo on this pc is an Intel D875PBZLK with a Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz. I'm looking for a replacement (AGP card) that will have essentially the same power draw, and that will play nice with Windows 7. Any suggestions?

Does anyone know how the EVGA GeForce 6200 card compares to the 9800Pro in terms of performance?

A GeForce 6200 would be a slight downgrade from a Radeon 9800 although both are pretty old cards at this point. I really hope that you aren't planning on doing much in the way of gaming as that system is dated to say the least. The best bet I would say would be a Sapphire Radeon HD 4650 which will work just fine with Windows 7.

i have a similar old PC, and upgraded it to its maximum. with that new card, the P4 would make a good & simple internet-only PC, with capabilities to run DOS or Gameboy ROM games...and maybe starcraft 1 and some old skool warcraft. anything recent would probably kill it, then. my p4 gets maybe 27fps or less in l4d 2.

You can upgrade to a current setup for cheap now. Why not make the jump to PCIe? Any decent AGP card will set you back far more than an equal performance PCIe GPU. You should be able to get a whole setup (mobo, ram, GPU and CPU) that will be far superior in every way to your current system for as much, or less, than a good AGP card.
