i don't know of any boards that are exclusively pci.  Most have an agp 
because its not as expensive to add the agp traces rather than deal with 
adding another pci slot.  Also, i've never liked onboard vga.  it 
usually gets interference from the other components on the motherboard, 
thus reducing the quality of the picture.  Just get a cheap geforce4 card.
