    Exclamation Can Some1 Plz Help me find best video card for original PCI slots?

    Hello, I've been looking into getting the best possible video card with the orignal pci slot. All of the new video cards have pci-express. I have been looking at this card but I'm not sure if there are better for around the same price. Plz help me out, I'd be very appreciative. I dont care about the brand, just the top performance. Thanks again

    Don't spend money on a PCI gfx card. really you need to upgrade.

    Im with that other forum too but I know the pain of upgrading, though I highly recomend it in your case, unless you are looking for a PCI card for a 3 or 4 monitor setup then PCI cards are almost no use to anyone...

    Is this going in another rig or the one in your sig? Since you have a 9800 PRO I would think it was going in another system.
