I think there's not gonna be an AGP 6200... it would make the PCB too costly to use the bridge chip...

That graphics card certainly put you through the wringer and I hope you contact the vendor and send them a link to this thread.

But I have some good news as I recently retired a system that had a BFG GeForce 5700 Ultra.

I'll be happy to donate the 5700 Ultra if you want it. And I'll even pay for shipping if you live in the continental US

After getting the 5700Ultra installed, it worked right away. I installed Windows XP, and tried out the first game I had access to, GTA Vice City. WOW! Even with AA 8x it's playable, even when it's raining (Though it jumps a little when raining), and with no AA it's Friggen fast. I can't wait to try some new games on it!
Windows boot times
1st boot after fresh install - 3 seconds
2nd boot after first lockup - 7 seconds (I had the FSB at 400mhz, even tho the barton only supports 333)
3rd boot after driver installs - 7 seconds

WOW! Windows loading faster than linux...
