I'm sure this has been answered a hundred times.

Recently my brother-in-law went and purchased a PC without an AGP slot.(Asked him to wait for me before buying.)Anyway, he bought a few games BF:1942, Delta Force: Black hawk down, and so on. Now he wants to actually be able to play the games and get some decent graphics has well. So my question to all of you is: From experience, what PCI card do you all think is the best out on the market. I know I'm limited. Your help is very appreciated. Thanks

Radeon 9100 PCI is very good.

I think there is a GeforceFX 5600 PCI available as well.

This pci card topic should be added to the bottom of the buyers guide. I even asked this question here for a friend a few months ago... but I had already told him to order a 9200... my mistake, but the 9200 it is a lot better than a pci GF4 MX, in any case... but not everyone will know that.

Getting a bit old now, but here's a PCI video card review:

Word is that 9100 is faster than 9200, but hard to find these days. The only GeForce FX5600 PCI card I could find was an Inno3D card, otherwise I'd go with a cheap and easy GeForce FX5200.
