Does anyone know whether the above combo would work. I've seen descriptions of the card as an agp/atx card. I have a baby at motherboard with an at power supply. Would the card work ok and is it ok with an orchid righteous 3dfx card.

If your motherboard did not have the slot for agp/atx card, do not try to install the device to any other ISA or PCI slot.  agp/atx device is only work with the motherboard that could support it.

The Vic 503+ is a AGP board. It should run fine with the G100. I don't know what can mean that atx in a video card requirements but try at find out (put your G100 in the rightest slot (AGP) of your board)

You should not accept a answer until your problem is gone. So if a proposed answer does not help you completly don't accept it. Just select 'reopen question for other experts'

G200 (not G100) is the BEST QUALITY (not speed) 3D (one of the bestest 2D) card on the market. The speed is VERY GOOD too. A G200 Millenium (or even Mystique) don't need a add-on 3Dfx card, it will only scrap the image quality. I think that is the best video card at current moment. Only the ATI All-in-Wonder Pro is better in category 'extras' - TV input+Teletext (TV Output can be found on some G200, and the G200 supports DVD)
The only cards wich will be good to add to the G200 could be a 2xVooDoo2 card (one card with two chips running in SLI, both chips with 12MB each = 2x12=24MB, but you will ocupy your only one full lenght PCI slot - that is the reason to use 2xVooDoo2 card instead of 2cards with one chip - the 503+ don't have two full lenght slots). and a PCI TV Tuner+Teletext+Radio card.

You have choosen very good products to buy - the best overclocker Socket7 board, the best video card,..... buy a K6-2/333 - the best CPU and run it at 3x112(336) or 2.5x124(310)
