How much are you will to spend?

This is the best you are going to do with PCI. It will be a huge boost in video performance over what you have now, but as for is it worth it? I would say no, but if you plan on having your pc for a couple years or more longer then it might be.

GeForce 9400 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI HDCP

$75

There's no point in buying a 9400GT for the PCI bus, anyway. Any card faster than the GeForce 6200 or FX-5500 will be limited by PCI.

Here's a 6200 for $39 (after rebates):

The HTPC:
Pentium M oc'ed to 2.82GHz, 667FSB, 2MB L2
3GB of DDR-800 @ 667MHz
GeForce 9600GT
Blu-Ray
Vista
Modified PowerMac G4 'Quicksilver' case
HDMI to homebuilt 1080p projector

I was just showing him the best that he could get with PCI interface. I mean it does have one big advatnage over any other pci gpu and that's the memory bit rate which will help, just not as much as on faster interfaces would.
