There are "PCI cards" for numerous different applications - modems, network adapters, sound cards, additional USB/Firewire ports, serial/parallel ports etc. What are you trying to do that requires the card?

Do you mean PCMCIA card?
If so what for?

hi MAT ALAN the pc is a dell dimension 2400 and it doesn't have a agp slot the other pc my daughter has is a e-machine 2210 which has a agp slot thanks

You're right in saying it doesn't have an AGP slot - only 3 PCI slots mentioned in the specs click here.

Unfortunately, there weren't any good PCI cards made for gaming, but if the games are not too taxing you may get away with a basic one anyway.

Let us know what games he's going to play - actual names will help. G

I used to have one of these and for a low end AGP card it's not too shabby...

make sure you get a PCI card not a PCI-E as this is a different fitting.

Terry, unfortunately those cards appear to be 10-15 years old & likely to be very poor for any kind of games - except may be games of that era.

chippy+ needs to let us know what games are going to be played. G
