    Powerful PCI (Not Express.) Graphics Cards?

    I was challenged to build a retro gaming beast. I'm only allowed to use a PCI graphics card, not express. Have any recommendations? Tell me the most powerful PCI cards you know! Edit: By "retro", I mean I have to use old equipment, such as a PCI card, DDR SDRAM, and all that.
