ATi radeon 9250 is a PCI slot card.

else check the nVidia's version for the PCI compatible card.

WHAT KIND OF GAMES DO YOU PLAY CAUSE I DONT THINK YOURE GOING TO GET MUCH GAMING OUT OF A SUB $70 PCI CARD. IF YOURE SERIOUS ABOUT GAMING YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER A REAL UPGRADE.

for $70 you're only gonna get like a geforce mx420 pci. You've gotta go up to $90 and get a Radeon 9250 PCI, that's about the best one.
