Try looking for a FX5700,They are getting harder to find but it's about the best you are going to get for PCI.

The best PCI card on the market is the VisionTek VTKX1300256PCI GDDR2.

VisionTek is ok but if I was you I would look around a little more for an FX5700 I think they are a little more stable with better AA and AF.
