You may be disappointed with the X1 video card's performance. If you want to play high-end games, invest in a new computer with a PCI Express X16 slot.

pci express x1 slot is suited for the available cards

radeon x1300s (x1550 is the same GPU) are the only card's i've seen available for pci-express x1. they're not really suited for gaming but are fine replacements for integrated graphics. the cards are more expensive than x8/x16 cards but that's to be expected with non-mainstream products. they're certainly a better alternative than any PCI video card.
