    I'll get right to the point:

    What is the fastest pci (not express) video card that money can buy?

    money being no object

    the best that i've found is a radeon 9250 with 256MB of memory
    OR
    a Geforce FX5200 with 128MB of memory

    are there any that are faster? or is one better than the other?

    I think the old Radeon 9000 Pro may be faster than both of those...if you can find one, which is very unlikely. I could be wrong though...

    The 9250 with 256MB of memory should have a 128-bit memory interface rather than a 64-bit interface.

    there are geforcefx 5500's in PCI. and i once saw a geforce 6200 in pci, though it was probably a typo/oversight in tigerdirect's catalog

    For ATi, the fastest your gonna find is a 9250.
    For Nvidia, the fastest is going to be the 5700LE.
    Personally, I would go with the 9250 if I was stuck with PCI.

    Moneys no object? Get a new mobo with an AGP or PCIE card.
