Default Building a new rig! Need help badly!

So i came across a couple of sweetheart deals. I was able to get a Mac Pro 1,1 updated to OS 10.7 in nearly perfect condition (for a 15 year old cpu anyway) In addition to that, i was also able to find a PT10 Hd license for sale as well with transfer. I got all of that for right at $300.
So, my questions are, what HD cards do i need to get to get the best bang for my buck?
I don’t know very much about the HD cards aside from the original TDM Core and Accel cards I’ve had since this stuff was brand new in 2006. Lol I’m 100% sure whatever i get I’m gonna run with two 192 interfaces i also already have, as well as I’m gonna be looking to buy a C24 (mostly because I’m so familiar with that combination as I’ve been using them since i first started on an original Control24 and upgraded when the C24 came out)
I’m particularly lost on the differences on the cards. When i first did all of this stuff, i just went to guitar center and had the guy tell me what all i needed and threw money at the situation. I can’t teally afford to do that these days. So i turn to you guys who are definitely smarter than me to figure it all out. Any help would be appreciated.

Find out what open slots exist in the old 1,1 MP. If its PCIe slots, then you need PCIe cards(at least a CORE card, add axcell cards for more power). If the computer has PCI or PCI-x slots, then get PCI-x HD cards(same as above)
