I am sorry if this in a another topic, but "PCI" shows no results from the search... Anyways, my friend has only PCI slots and is looking for a graphics card to play games with, instead of using his integrated graphics... What cards that are out there right now are still PCI??? Thanks

No new cards are made in the original PCI format. Here are a couple of older PCI Video cards. ATi Radeon 9250 256mb, Nvidia FX5700LE, Nvidia FX5500. What processor does your friend have? If he has to low of a processor it might bottleneck the vido card.

well the chanses are if he has a PCI only system, his CPU is going to be low end so it wont matter anyway. i would say the FX5500 is the best there to be honest with it being 128bit/128mb when the FX5700le is 64bit/128mb

FX5500 or FX5700 are both good choices. I now have 2 PC's that are PCI only and yes, PCI kinda sucks, but you can still play most games with a decent PCI card.

omdg, how-many-time-are-people-going-to-ask-this-question? NewEgg has an amazing function. Simple as this, search for "PCI" or sort the results by "PCI." The site wasn't working for me ATM, but should be soon.
