Graphics Card Help Please

After discovering that my E-machines E4020 only has PCI slots, not the PCIE slot as stated (there is a space for it but just a row of solder connections and 2 holes)I am trying to find a suitable well priced PCI graphics card that I can play my Christmas present game -Tomb Raider Anniversary Edition- on
I don't really want blistering performance, just to be able to play my game, I don't use the PC for gaming very often.
Please could someone who knows about these things recommend a suitable PCI graphics card, Ive looked in all the high street retailers and online sites I know.
Thanks for any help : ))

Looking at the recommended (rather than the minimum)specs for the game, this looks your best bet, but it's £60!

An E4020 dates back to 2005 - so it was never going to have PCIe slots. The "missing slot" you can see is probably a non-fitted AGP slot.

considering how old the PCI slot is now i think DieSse has come up with a very cheap solution.
The only other way to go is upgrade but of course thats gonna cost,good luck...
