Default pci card

My wife has a dell dimension 2400 which has been doing ok so far as she uses it mostly for watching movies, regular office work, some webdesigning, etc. yesterday she tried to play Sims 2 but it gave an error. Its video related, so I thought I will get her a new card that can do T&L and Dx9 and all the cool stuff. Turns out the 2400 does not have a agp slot. So what r my options as far as PCI video cards are concerned. The games that need to run are Sims 2, Black & White 2, Stronghold 2, etc.

I don't want to get you drunk, but, ah, that's a very fine Chardonnay you're not drinking.
