I saw some X1300s on Newegg, but they were $120 which is costly for what kind of performance you're going to get. Then the X1550s and 6200s appeared to be in the $80-$90 range. That again is costly for the performance.

I'm going to agree with Liability here. IMO, to buy the best PCI card, it's going to cost too much money for what kind of performance you're going to get. I bet you could build a $400 rig that would blow away what he has right now. The best PCI card that you'd want to get is almost 1/4 the price of a new computer that will probably be 5x-10x better.


Thats my $.02

Bear in mind those cards are about as powerful as integrated, playing even on low settings will be painful, to say the least.

PCI was replaced by AGP some 10 years ago. It's beyond me why they're still producing cards for that bus.
