Computer only has PCI slots, so I need some help in picking out which would be better? Nvidia FX5500 or ATI 9250? I know that PCI sucks for PC gaming, but thats all I have.....And I don't feel like upgradeing my mobo at this time. I am just looking to do a simple video card uprade.
 
The FX5500 is the better one but again it would be crippled because of the PCI's slot's low bandwidth...
But as you know they suck for gaming, there is no point in me telling the same...

Haha I was actually in your same predicament a few years ago. I went with the FX5500. Let me just say from experience though, I doubt you'll get the performance boost you are expecting.
