Video card Redux

Okay, you guys are probably tired of me posting , asking for ideas for a new graphics card. But, alas, I have a final question. I don't have an AGP port on my motherboard. All I have is three open PCI slots. ANy good cards for this slot? I was looking at the PNY GeForce FX 5500 128MB DDR PCI Graphics Card
Model: VCGFX55PPB, since I just want to play city of heroes and Doom 3. Is this card good enough? Or are there others that I just don't know about? ARGH! I feel so frustrated with this. Anywho, here my specs again:

Pentium 4- 2.4 GHZ
1 gig Ram
80 gig hard drive
15" Flat panel- 1024 X 768

Bumping the thread. You mean there are no opinions out there?

How about you just upgrade the mobo? If you want to play Doom 3, I doubt any PCI cards will give you good output. But then again, I've also heard that Doom 3 scales well for older cards...Spend the money now to upgrade your mobo and get a PCIE or AGP graphics card and have some good framerates.

Perhaps it's a Dell or other Tier 1 product with integrated mainboard?
