Your PC is still using your old graphics processor to boot up.
To change this turn your PC off. Hook you monitor up to the old display port. Turn your PC on and press F10 to enter the BIOS.
Select Peripherals > Int Graphics Processor and set it to PCI.
Save and exit. Turn your PC of, hook to monitor back to your new graphics card and you're all set!

BTW, 200 watts in plenty for that PCI card. nVidia always suggests more than you need to be safe. I had that same PC and card : D
Be sure to check out the amazing Z-Tweaked 82.12 drivers for that card (XP, or forced on vista and win7). The 185.81 by side are a step down but still very good (vista win7).

I would suggest upgrading your PSU so it does not make other problems occur in the future, and this should as well fix the problem with not loading the bios screens.

    The reason i say to upgrade the PSU is because the 6200 card you have needs at least a 250w PSU when its stock, if its OC then you would want to use something better then the base needed to use it.

    of course, anyone's PC no matter how old (up to a certain extent) can be upgraded to run most current games, and programs easily.

    If you are looking to use this PC to play Graphic intensive games then you would definitely need, at minimum, a couple upgrades. Which wouldn't be to expensive or hard to implement into your PC.

    Now you can also do other kinds of upgrades such as: Motherboard, RAM, Sound card, Network cards and others to make it more able to run higher end applications. But, that is all up to you and what you are looking to be able to do with your PC.

    Like i said previously it is all dependent on what you are trying to do.

    If you are wanting to play games such at Call of Duty: World at War, then you will require more updates to it, including but not limited to: Motherboard, CPU, RAM, and Video Card.

    If you are wanting to play said game or others then you would need to make more upgrades to make it suitable to play them.

    The Computer Casing or "Box" as you put it just houses the components needed to make the system work. You can, at any time, upgrade them to make it more suitable to your needs.

8.3. 9.0. 4.0. post codes when attempting to boot up.

code 8.3: 12V 4 pin plug disconnected or power supply damage. Check connection /test PSU
code 9.0: OC too high (possible bios damage) clear CMOS as 1st resort

Not sure about 4.0 but 0.4 indicates memory module failure.

Have you overclocked the board? The codes would indicate you went a bit over the top if you did. I'd clear the cmos and check the PSU and reseat the ram and start from the vanilla settings, hopefully the bios chip is not blown

My Pc just shut down while i was playing a game. i unplugged my geforce 9600 gt's power and my pc worked again, but without graphics. what is wrong with my graphics card???

The problem that caused the PC to shut off is the GForce graphics card is drawing too much power and the switch mode power supply was overloaded and shut down.
Check the switch mode power supply's wattage, if it is around 300 to 400 watts, it maybe be too low. You most likely need to get a higher wattage switch mode power supply, especially if you added more RAM, disk drives, DVD drives etc. to your PC after the initial purchase of the PC.

Werticle lines in pairs of four and long startup wait

your card is pulling too much power. check the wattage rating of the card and the wattage output of your power supply . good rule of thumb you want about 20% more that your card rating 450 watt card needs 650 watt power supply to run well. the extra is for your other stuff (dvd burner ,ect)

Black screen with AGP video card update

you really didn't need a new psu for that videocard, but it can either be a burned videocard or the monitor can't support the refresh rate the videocard is outputting.  although, the card really should default to its lowest setting upon installing in a new system, try connecting another monitor.  if you get a screen, thats good, if not, try booting into safe mode holding f8 right before the windows loading screen appears.
