The Right Video Card [Help]

Since I've fixed my old Dell Dimension with Windows 7 Ultimate installed fresh, I've had problems and learned that there are no drivers for the nVidia mx420 on Windows 7. The 420 isn't great, but combined with my RAM and System Speed it was pretty good. The onboard video is very crappy, cannot even play Half-Life 1 at 680x480 on Software, I get like 8-10 fps average.

So, if you're still reading (thanks) - I'm looking for a video card that's "average" or "good" that is PCI 1.0, which is what my motherboard supports. It needs to be able to run on Windows 7, ie: Have drivers compatible with it so I can use it and game a little bit.

Under $100 for this would be nice.

I see it says it's 64bit, My computer is a 32bit only system. Will this graphics card still fully operate fine with it?

You must have a Dell Dimension 1100 or something. I have one and it only has PCI slots lol.

I went to look up PCI cards on Newegg, and everything is pretty much crappy save for the 5450 posted and the 9400GT, which is more cool than anything.

Ah lol. I've got a Del Dimenson 1100 I've been working on and upgrading. I'm using the PCI version of the GT430 for gaming.

Either of the cards listed above should do fine though.
