Default Need help finding a good G-card for my Mobo

I have a 'guppy' in my compaq desktop pc. It has no PCI-E or AGP slots just PCI. I need some help to find a nice pci based video card for it. Im a gamer, and although I know I wont probably wont be able to push half-life 2 on it, i'd like to find something powerful but...low priced. Thanks for any and all help.

go with that hands down. you pretty wont much be able to get anything with more than 4 p/l's since its PCI. that's the best of the PCI cards.
