No we didn't forget the "e", it is actually PCI

VisionTek has released the first PCI graphics card since the NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 and ATI Radeon 9250 was available in PCI. The new VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI provides users that lack AGP or PCI Express expansion capabilities with a new upgrade path. Based on the ATI Radeon X1300 graphics processor, the VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI features four pixel shaders and two vertex shaders. It also features a 450 MHz core and 533 MHz memory clock.

Features such as ATI’s AVIVO video processing is also supported with the VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI. Output capabilities of the VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI include VGA d-sub, dual-link DVI-I and TV-out. Component HDTV, S-Video and composite video out capabilities are supported, though a separate cable or adapter is required. VisionTek does not bundle the required TV-out adapters or cables.

The VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI is available immediately from online and bricks and mortar retailers for $129.99.

If there's anywhere more memory is good, it's on a PCI card. When there's need for more than the on-board RAM, PCI just doesn't have the bandwidth.

Since games are slowly starting to make use of even 512MB, 256MB is pretty reasonable these days. Remember that you can still play at low-res with few graphical options and benefit from hi-res textures (which look good up close), so even on a low end card more memory makes some sense.
