Unfortunately they don't make many newer PCI video cards, I'll look around to see what the best is you can get, will post a link shortly.

Heres some:

http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?name=EV-4000PCI

Although I don't know the exact specs of it, I would suggest not buying an upgrade for it- it's pretty old and probably won't run much game wise, I'm sure ebay probably has some cheaper PCI cards too.

I have that same pc I tried to put a pci video card in it and I couln't get it to work, so I called dell and they said you can't upgrade the card on that model.

my roomate last year had a Dell that only had PCI slots and he got a PCI gfx card for it and it ran fine... he even played DOOM 3.

Call Dell and ask them what video card you can put in it. just talk to sales. they'll try to sell you one, sometimes Dell is cheap on things and if you get it from them then it has to work or it's their fault and they'll fix it, take it back or whatever. if they're expensive just remember what they recommend and look for something similar elsewhere.

Actually the best pci card is the 6200. Look here: http://www.3dfuzion.com/cards_6200_pci_128.asp
