best video card for a k6-350 3d
I am upgrading my computer to a k6-350 3d and and looking for the best video card out there

I'd go with either the Velocity 4400, or the Canopus Spectra 2500, both with the Riva TnT chipset. I just bought a Velocity , and it is sweet

Just so ya have a second opinion...
Canopus 2500 or STB Velocity 4400.
Do you know how to upgrade drivers?
...if so... Don't get a Diamond.

Please explain the comment about Diamond and drivers. Thanks. Lagman

The best card at the present moment for any K6-2 is the Voodoo2 with 3DNow! drivers. The V2 with the new drivers is almost twice as fast as the generic drivers. However expect the lead to swap when Riva bring out some better drivers for their TNT. Basically if you've got a K6-2, you NEED to use the 3DNow instructions wherever possible. I would hold off buying a TNT until you know for sure that new drivers are coming out, they could be weeks and they could be months. Even if they do come out, they may not be well optimised and a V2 will still beat it.
Naturally, once you're convinced that good drivers are coming out that make use of 3DNow (or you're willing to take a gamble, the odds are in your favour) then I recommend the TNT. The velocity 4400 is currently the fastest TNT board out there, it looks excellent.
Disclaimer: this is all based on what I have read on about 19571957294 different internet pages. My computer is equivalent to a P90 so I didn't even bother with a 3D card for it. All that will change in december, that's new computer time
