Kyro2 no questions about it The Voodoo5500AGP is as fast as GeForce1 and Kyro2 is as fast as GeForce2 Pro and Ultras guarantied Kyro2 sometimes it even beats the Ultra but most of the time is as fast as the Ultra.
Half the way between a PC screen and the scary real life...
Hmmm, with your current combo, I dunno...
Few Super7 motherboards (like yours) can handle the power requirements of modern AGP graphic cards.
The Voodoo5 has an external power supply (right?), and the Kyro2 seems VERY CPU dependant (I dunno if your K6-2 would be enough)
There was a review GeForce 3 vs Kyro 2 that showed how both managed on different motherboards. I don't remember which website, sorry...
Also, you say something about PCI... I dunno if the Kyro2 is even planned to be in a PCI format.
If you plan to buy a PCI video card NOW and before changing your motherboard/CPU, grab a Voodoo3 2000 or 3000.
They are available in both AGP and PCI flavours, really unexpensive, and will fit well with your K6-2.
True, forthcoming 3D shooters require at least a V5, but your current computer doesn't have the horse power anyway...
Or change your computer.
BTW, the Kyro2 is great as a gaming card, but can't do much for professional OpenGL proies for example.

this is really tricky actually, the Kyro II is undoubtedly the more powerful, but the Voodoo 5 has 3DNow! support in the drivers, meaning it may make better usage of the CPU you have. Whichever you choose, the CPU is going to be the bottleneck. If you are planning to get a new motherboard and CPU soon, I'd go with the Kyro, otherwise I'd stick with the Voodoo. Even though the Voodoo won't have any driver updates (3dfx have gone bust), it won't really matter coz you ain't gonna be able to play all those fancy new games on a K6-2 anyway, at least not at any decent kind of resolution
