ever think about upgrading your motherboard? your just about two technologies behind, with PCI-express starting to hit the market

The radeon 9200 would be your best bet for the pci video card. As it has true direct x support unlike nivida.(only in early stages of cards)

i would actually disagree and go with the FX5200. its a later card and performs better than the Radeon 9200

5200 does perform better but in reality they BOTH suck

I wouldn't use either if someone gave me then for my motherboard - i'd rather use the onboard graphics.

Anyway you should seriously think about upgrading your motherboard - you will still not be able to play anything with a PCI card.
