PCI video cards are generally only for people who don't have AGP or PCIe as they can't handle as much data, so go PCIe. For your budget, I suggest an MSI NX 6600GT:

The PCI-E interface has more pipelines then the PCI. So it can transfer data faster. Definantly go with the PCI-E if you can afford it.

Can't go wrong with that card. I'll take PCI-express anytime over AGP and especially PCI.
