PCI will get you no where with video cards. I would get a new motherboard that supports PCI-Express. I wouldnt invest anymore money into your system right now. Thats just my opinion.

well you are out of luck then. No video card that is on the PCI interface will play BF2 nicely.

Hey whats up with people all the time hating on PCI? I know its slow but telling someone that pci is an outdated technology does not help anyone. I am also in the same predicament as you are, Berthacomputer, since my comp doesnt have an agp or pci express slot. You could get a Ati Radeon 9250, it can handle Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 on low settings. The fastest card I found for PCI is the Nvidia Geforce 6200.

Heres the link

Don't worry about some of us. We're power hungry. If your PC doesn't have an AGP slot or even a PCI-express slot, then PCI slots are the next best thing. One member pointed out the 6200 PCI video card from Best Buy. Other than that, an FX5500 will do you nicely.

They work fine for me...

Here are most of the pci cards available minus the 6200 which for some reason they dont have. The best card for pci is prooly the 6200 so just google it..

6 USB 2.0 ports (Four rear ports and two front ports)
1 RJ45 Ethernet port

CD drive audio interface: 4-pin connector
Fan: One 5-pin connector


Dell XPS 600

IEEE 1394: 2 Ports (1 Front, 1 Back)
USB: 10 Ports (2 Front, 6 Back, 2 internal)

Not all Dells are pci. All computers have pci slots. Its that dell gives you a cheap mobo in which you got integrated video card there for you dont need a agp/pci-e. The only reason they dont make more pci card is because sorry to say it they just suck. Look at it this way the bandwhith of agp is 4x and 8x..pci-e goes all the way to 16x and pci only goes 1x which is REALLY slow...


All those link are working fine I dont know what your talking about.

if those are the specs of your comp u have a pci-e slot which is a million times better than a pci slot, get a pci-e card...

A mobo is short for motherboard. No, not all Dells have pci-e. To find out if you have one just open your case up and look for a pci-e sign it will say "pci16x" Should look like the big one in this picture...
