I recommend the FX5200 or FX5500, the best PCI cards you can get :-\

You going to get limited performance with either card, but I would chose the 5700le cause its newer. I checked for benches online but tough to find for pci cards.

Nvidia 5500 would be okay. Hard to find 5700s and only ones are not 128-bit.
