My Brother wants to get a video card for his Dell 3000 series. I dose not have any PCIx16 slots just regular PCI slots and he wasts it to be able to run ubuntu's graphical interface (the aero of ubuntu)

Well, that's a little hard to run 3D effects, XGL and beryl. Although, the BEST card for PCI would be this one:

X1550.

The GPU is same. Just the low-profile version.

If you habve 256MB RAM. 4.1 GB free, and a decent CPU (PII 350 and up...maybe lower), you can install it.
