Help to optimize my system

I want help with which graphic card (accelerator) I should buy to get the most out of my system? Ive got a P200Mhz (first version), Diamond Stealth64 2Mb, 64MbRam, motherboard P/I-P55T2P4. Thanx mole for my first question.

I would like to hear others comment on my observations.

I've tested several video boards, admittedly a very limited selection, and I've observed that the best video performance occurs at 800x600 with 64k (16-bit hi-color) colors. 64k colors is noticably faster than 256 colors and there is virtually no performance variation when going from 640x480 to 800x600 but when any combination of 16M colors and/or 1024x768 is used, video performance can drop by a factor of 10 or more.

I have a limited selection of graphic boards to test and I'm using the Nuts&Bolts video benchmark.

Can anybody confirm or deny my observations?
