In my honest opinion the savage 32 is an average card, it is not crap by any standards but it will not set your world on fire either compared to TNT2 or V3. It is a solid performer until you get into higher resolutions than 1024x768 in Games like quake 2, q3test, AvP etc.
The upside it has 32mb of memory,128 bit engine,300mhz RAMDAC, 32bit color, twin texel pipeline,agp 2x implementation, S3Texture Compression(very good feature) to name a few,
Very horrid drivers they make the card AVERAGE at best, Clock speed only around 135mhz meaning fram rates are slow, S3tc not widely supported yet.
It is a good card and the image quality is beatiful, but if speed is more you fore' then a Voodoo3 2000 is probably better.
