    i believe the 6200 will do purevideo but accoring to this link only the PCI-E version.
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/page/purevideo_support.html

    you'll have to go for a 6600 card minimum if you need AGP - but you should be able to get one for £60-£80 (try gigabyte if you need passive cooling)

    As far as i can remeber all 6 series cards support pure video, the 6 series chip was designed as a PCIe chip only later updated to support AGP through a conveter chip to convert the PCIe signal to an AGP signal that’s why the AGP cards are a few pounds more than the equivalent PCIe card
