I just recently bought a Guillemot MaxiGamer Phoenix at Best Buy for $110, and a $20 mail-in rebate brings it down to $90. So far, I'm VERY pleased with this card.

I would shop around for a good priced TnT or Banshee. I would avoid an i740. It's a low priced card, but just too slow. YOu can get a banshee or tnt for as low as 90.00 to 100.00 if you spend the time to shop around.

If you really want the best card for under 100.00. Compusa has the Velocity 128ZX 8Mb for 99.95. It is clean, fast , and works. It will be better than a i740. And ATI is just crap.

The Savage3D based Hercules Terminator Beast would be a solid choice. The Beast has the best of both worlds, performance and image quality. Also, I haven't heard of too many compatibility problems with Socket 7 motherboards. Take a look at www.pricewatch.com or www.killerapp.com to find the lowest price of this card, or any for that matter.
