Hello,

It would help if you can also the make and model of your motherboard. PCI video cards very hard to find this times because of the faster and better performance from PCI-E video cards. It is very hard to find PCI video cards right now but not impossible. I would suggest that you check out buy-and-sell websites to see if you can get a second-hand one from there. You can also post what you are looking for, you never know someone might be planning of selling one. As for PCI cards, the Geforce fx 5600 PCI is a pretty good video card, if you can find one, go for it.

If you really can not find PCI cards, then just add another 1 GB to your ram to at least improve your computers performance during games since your RAM is shared if you don’t have a dedicated video card installed.

Hello,

I think the Best solution is Change your motherboard, Because, PCI Card are too old now and Not supported for Latest games. So Just spend $150 and rebuild your PC for latest games. PCi express is most popular and Better for gaming.

Good luck.

Almost all new video cards today in the market are for PCIE slot. It cannot be use to your motherboard. You can try to buy second hand video card ATI 512mb from second hand store. It is better than buying new motherboard.
