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 I know its slow but telling someone that pci is an outdated technology does not help anyone.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..
