When you say dont even think about getting a PCI for gaming, does that include PCI-e?
It does not include PCI-e. PCI-e owns for graphics card. PCI is not as fast as the other video bus used.

For a gamer? I would say PCI-E. Any motherboard you get will have it anyway, you might as well take advantage of it.
