OK, so basically, I want to get a new graphics card for my computer and I need some advice
Right now I have and NVIDIA Ge Force FX 5200, and I didn't buy it for gaming, I just needed an S-video port (which my integrated graphics didn't have)

But now I am getting a little bit more into gaming and I want a new card.
But I have kind of run into a small bums, most of the graphics cards that i have found on various sites are all PCI Express or AGP. My computer has only standard PCI slots. So what PCI cards are out there for less than $200 that could at least decently play a game like COD4 or UT2004?

PCI Graphics Cards are dead in the water. Even low-end AGP cards deliver far better performance than a PCI one ever will.

I'm guessing that you only have a PCI slot and not AGP? The most I've ever seen for a PCI was 256mb and that is an obsolete type. And that was a couple of years ago.
