Arrow What's the best PCI G-Card?

Does anybody know what the best PCI Graphics Card is? I just found out I don't have an AGP Slot or a PCI-E slot, so I am looking for a descent PCI graphics card

But surely this will improve the performance and graphics quite significantly, I have an integrated crappy card on a dell dimension 2400. Anyways I might not get this card yet, im gonna keep searching for a couple of days to find the best PCI card out. I would appreciate if someone could reply with some useful links or info.

This is the best one I have seen so far

If nobody comes out with anything better, I think that will be the one.

The bandwith on a PCI slot sucks, so its really a very small increase in power. Id say put the money towards a new computer
