I have a TNT2 M64 I bought for $61. I have it overclocked to 160Mhz with the memory set at 151Mhz using PowerStrip. I'm running a CeleronII [email protected] with 96MB RAM. In Unreal Tournament I'm getting 42FPS in 800x600 w/med skin, high world & 16bit color in a medium sized map. Alot of people hate this card because of it's low band width. While i'll agree it's not the greatest, but it's not the worst either. I think i've read here that VooDoo2's are very overclockable and can be had fairly cheap. If you could get a TNT2 M64 cheaper than what I paid go for it, otherwise go for a V2 or save your money and get a G-Force. I think an SDR can be had for $150 now.

Opps! I didn't read you post very well! If you really want a PCI version VooDoo is the way to go!

Guys guys guys... Who says the AMD k6-2 is bad?? Man, I have AMD k6-2 550 mhz, 128 mb pc100 ram and an awsome Voodoo 3 3000 AGP, and I get 45 fps CONSTANTLY in Unreal Tournament. The AMD k6-2 + V3 (3000 version preferably) rocks
And no, AMD k6-2 is NOT bad as many says!!

I'd suggest the V3. You didn't say whose Nvidia cards they are, but the quality and support from 3dfx are hard to beat. I also happen to think it will be the fastest of the bunch in your system, but that's the kind of statement that starts flame wars here.
