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.

6200 PCI vs X1300

First, this is not the first PCI card since the 5200/9250. I have a 6200 PCI card at work which I upgraded from a 5700 LE. Both PCI cards.

Second, these types of cards are extremely useful for anyone who wants to run Vista on business/educational machines. The machines we ordered this year came with X300s because I know we'll have people asking for it. We only replace machines every 4 years. Consequently, 75% of our machines cannot run Vista with Aero Glass enabled. Not to mention how great it is to have a card that I can use to play a little COD2 at lunch.

Finally, the x1300 might be faster than the 6200 but you can find the 6200 for under $40. I got mine for $35 shipped. It was cheaper than the 5200/9250s.
