I have a 7 year old computer and I'm looking to put a new graphics card in it so the aero effects would work, but it has to be a PCI card, which are both old and expensive.
But I really want aero but don't have the money for a new rig, any graphics card suggestions?

Unless you can find a working used one from the 9500/9600 series and up for ATI or from the 6xxx and up for Nvidia, this is about the best and cheapest you will find that fits the bill,
