The old Matrox cards are still some of the best 2d cards ever made, of course their 3d capability is well...ya know. I have heard very mixed reviews about the G200's. I understand they have beautiful graphics capability but their 3d ability is slower than other cards. I would think for your CPU the Banshee is the best bet. The TNT cards are fantastic but without serious CPU horsepower you really dont do them justice.
