    PCI express is merely PCI's newer bigger brother.
    What you need to consider:
    Is your power supply good enough? (Unless you specified which one you want, probably not. Report back with the brand and rating and I can advise)
    What will you use it for?
    How much can you have to spend?
    These two questions determine what type of card to get. Make sure it's enough of an upgrade from what you have now!
