You'll be struggling to get a PCI card, the only ones I could find were a FX5200 and a MX400. Its either one of them or a new motherboard I'm afraid.

As an example of the two look here click here you can see from the benchmarks that the 5200 is a bit better than the MX400 but not by that much. The good news is both the cards are cheap. Personally I'd upgrade and buy a new board but I play a lot of games, if you just want something a bit better than what you have, I presume its onboard, then I'd go for the 5200.
