Default Best PCI Video Card?

What is the best video card for pci slots? My gf has a dell and it doesn't have an agp or a pci-e slot. I want to get her a video card that will be decent for gaming. What do you guys recommend?

probably the best is i think either a geforce 5700 or 6200. i think the 5700 is actually more powerful than the 6200, the 6200 just has some newer technology on it

I think they make a Geforce FX 5500, that would most likely be the best card.

Just looking at price... and depending on the game there probably won't be much difference in the 2 cards...
