Chris M, the former Dell moderator, listed the 6200 as one of the pci cards for these entry level Dells. Now these weren't Dell tested but rather user tested. Also at the time the list was compiled there was probably a wider selection of 6200 pci video cards available that perhaps met the pci version 2.3 standard.
I have two Dimension 2400 computers that have been modified with FX 5200 cards, one a PNY, the second an evga installed about a year after the first. The PNY gave the most trouble being the first I had installed. The evga card installed smoothly the first time due to my experience with the first one. Both cards perform satisfactorily, but I don't believe they are being highly stressed. The games my sons play included the on-line version of Final Fantasy 11 and Guild Wars.

After much research installed 256 ATI Radeon 9250 PCI graphic accellerator. Installed in 5 min. used drivers from website NOT disk . No conflicks that way with the old drivers on disk. Works like a charm. Can now play games that would not even load before.
Son was on for hours with Enter the Matrix and played very smooth, no lag or loss of color.
From what I read, there seems to be less problems with the Radeon cards with a Dell than the nVidia cards with loss of color or break up of video when playing games.
As of now, really happy with this card. And the best thing was at Comp-USA after rebate, it only cost $44.00
Was well worth the upgrade.
Hi,,This is what you do first,,If you already installed any drivers for this card from the disk, uninstall them, and start from new.
Right click my computer,device manager..... right click display adapters and disable.
Turn pc off and unplug it... Install pci card in empty slot.
You need to download the Catalyst 6.8 windows XP drivers.
Don't save,, just run or open when download is done.
If link don't work,,copy and paste
Took me 10 min. from start to finish
