pci-e does not equal pci they are not interchageable. the best nvida card offered for pci is the 5500 unless you have an agp is the only way you are getting a card worth buying. i would try looking with other companies for a pci grahpics cards because nvidia does not make graphics cards for that dead technology anymore. and i am sorry if i sound rude.

Is this your mobo? [url="http://www.logicalplus.com/m7proamdsovi1.html"]http://www.logicalplus.com/m7proamdsovi1.html[/url]

It should have a AGP slot! Why you use PCI g/c while you have a AGP slot??

Anyway, your pc is too slow, I don't think it is capable to run BF2142 and Flight Simulator X smooth even with the latest g/c. Might as well save your money to change new system.
