Default Upgrading with pci gfx card.

Ok im planning on upgrading my old Pentium 3 1ghz computer before i sell it to my friend. Im planning on getting 2 sticks of 256mb=512mb max support on mobo. Also i want to get an ok pci gfx card because the onboard video =no games for him. The mobo has no pci-e or agp slots, no suprise here. In this case i guess a standard pci card would be ok right? Well i found one here, would it be any good for games like dungeon seige 2,guild wars etc or is this just a waste of money.

Ati Gfx card $52.99
