Default PCI video card

I haven't heard many good things about PCI video cards, but my pos mobo doesn't have an AGP slot...

this card has gotten some decent reviews

any comments?

Well an SE version of the 9200 would perform less than the 9200, but with it being PCI I wouldn't expect too much from it. What games are you lookin to play

Nothing too intensive I guess. One of the reviews said it can handle World of Warcraft alright.

I hope to get a higher FPS than my integrated video. I get about 30-50 on Counterstrike

if your mobo doesnt have an agp slot i think your first concern should be getting one of those...not a new video card :|

I wouldent count on playing WoW with that. WoW would need a moderate video card. PCI, basicly has no use anymore.
