i'm planning to build a system with AMD K6-2 350mhz cpu...would a STB Velocity 128zx or a Diamond V330 be better?

Neither... Try a G200 or Banshee. Actually I've got a V330 and it's good as long as you stay with D3D or 2D-graphics. But a newer card would probably be worth the extra bucks.

With a fast processor like that, it would be a waste to run it with a card that does not fully push it's potential. I'd go with some thing liek a TnT or a voodoo2 setup. You can get a creative tnt for as little as 120.00 now

Assuming you've got a VIA MPV3 chipset, then I can recommend the Diamond V550 - just make sure you get hold of the latest AGP driver from VIA - had no problems with my V550.

If you've got an ALI chipset, then you may find you have problems with most AGP cards.
