Exclamation QUICK!! Need help choosing Video card

Hey,

I have narrowed down to two cards, the ATI 9250SE or the FX5500 PCI. I need PCI, not AGP, or ISA, or PCI-E. Which one is better? I would also like a link to benchmarks.

Dude maybe because he can't afford anything else that's why. All of you guys need to relax, some people don't have endless supplys of money, alot of us are on budget, he needs help with a question not to be cut down and have people like WOOT over here. It's probably because it's all he can afford. I would say go with the 5500. PCI-E is the best but I doubt you will be able to find that card for PCI-E. Why don't you have AGP ?

No, he needs PCI, not PCIe.
But I suggest saving a buttload of money for a complete overhaul. I got a part time job to afford the 7800!
