Default PCI video card

The current Dell that I have is Pentium 4, 512 MB, 2.5 GHZ, intell built-in video card. Since the video card is really not that good for gaming, I was thinking about buying a PCI video card.
PS:My dell doesn't have an AGP slot

Any recommendations?

Yea i bought a complete P4 2.0 dell system for the kids for $350.00 .The onboard video wouldnt show the full screen playing Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings .It has a wopping 3 PCI slots.I installed an ATI 9200se now they can play there games and watch some DVD`s . It does a good job for there tastes anyway 8P ... A BFG OC FX 5200 would be a little better than the ATI but iether will be a big performance gain for you.
