Default New low-budget video card

Hi I'm new here. I don't have much experience building computers, and this is only my second one. I have an AMD XP 3200+ Processor with a K7S41GX Motherboard. I need a decent video card but I'm on a very limited budget. My price range is preferbly around $110 or $120. I was going with a Nvidia Geforce 6600 (, but im not sure my motherboard supports pci-e cards. my old choice

Can you guys tell me what would be the best card in my price range?

$110-120 won't get you anything good

just save up until you can buy a 6600gt
