I like my STB Velocity 128 4meg. It's great for games, supports OpenGL and it's real stable. I plan to upgrade to the Velocity 4400 (RIVA TNT) as soon as it's available. It should have the features the Velocity 128 has and should give 3Dfx a run for it's money.

It is impossable to give a non biased opinion but I like the all in wonder pro from ATI.  you really should have said what you are planning on using this card the most for.  other than that wayneb has the right idea just look around for reviews and see what appeals to you.

I have the STB Velocity 128 and just love it... Haven't had any problems with it in Win95 or Win98...  Does a marvelous job w/ 3D and 2D.. i have a gateway 2000 P][ 300 w/ 64MB RAM... The video card has 4MB on it upgradable to 8..

MasseyM,

I see we both agree on the Velocity 128's price for performance is a great chioce in a video card. Maybe you've been hasty in answering the question? Blackdragon hasn't evaluated the comments and asked for a posted answer; not to mention that you answer is reduplicative.

I have managed to get hold of a Matrox AGP G200.  Brill card.

Ah, but it will never match the numbers or quality of the Velocity 4400, guaranteed!
