Default Standard PCI and Aero

Hello everyone,

I am trying to find an affordable Standard PCI graphics card that will run aero on my computer (Dell E310, 2.8Ghz Pentium 4, Intel 910GL Express chipset [ ] 80GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM). I am asking you to list Standard PCI graphics cards because my motherboard doesn't have a PCI-Express slot .

Thanks for all your help!!

If it doesn't have a PCI-express slot, perhaps it has an AGP slot?

Sadly no. I'd also like to make a correction... it does have a PCI-E x1 slot but I would prefer a standard PCI card.

why? the pci-e x1 slot should be better,,,it's newer technology than the pci, but it's not the pci-e x16 so still should be affordable.

I heard that the Standar PCI cards were better... I am probably wrong though.
