An external modem would be better, but a PCI one would suffice. I recommend getting a "hardware modem" and not a "winmodem" or "software modem." Hardware modems tend to perform better, as they take a lot of the stress on their own circuits.
If you see "modem" without anything like "DSL" or "cable" tagged to it, it's most likely a regular phone line modem.
