Default New vid card

I am about to purchase a new video card for my computer and I dont have an AGP slot, all i have are pci's. Would an nVIDIA fx 5500 do the job as a pci vid card? Or would I be better off with ATI?

ati or nvidia, it's really up to you, they are both great brands. but I would imagine an fx 5500 would do the trick, do you do a lot of gaming? or just for general use?

fx5500 is just average, get it if you play a few games, once in a while.
If your new to computer gaming and want to start playing a lot, then i sugest you save up and invest in a good card, maybe even a 6800, or the ati X800

I do a lot of basic games like Starcraft and Red Alert 2, but I also play Ghost Recon, Halo, and Need for Speed Underground 2. But the real problem is I dont have a huge budget to start building a new computer, Im still going through High School.
