Default Video Card (yeah, another one)

I need some advice on what kind of graphic card i could put in my system.

Here's some basic specs on my system:
Celeron @ 2.8
1 Gig of Ram
Onboard 64mb video
All PCI, No express or AGP

yeah, i know, old i didnt exactly look close enough when I bought it, otherwise it would have AGP.

AAAAnyway, I need a new card. I'm looking to play stuff like Half-Life 2, Battle for Middle-Earth 2, and others. So far the best I can find is a PNY Geforce FX5200 256MB at $66. Being that I only have PCI, there's not much to choose from and performance is shotty at best. Any help you can render will be helpful.

I think it would be best to save up, unless you can't wait.
