I read in a magazine somewhere (you can see the kind of high quality source material you're working with here :) ) that a wise person used two cards of the same model with '98's multiple-monitor thing.  That forces you to use 2 x PCI cards, as there is only ever one AGP slot.

Commented:
With Win 98 you can use 2 differents card, AGP and PCI, PCI and PCI, or any combinaison with ISA ( plug and play card is recommended ).

It's a great card, no problem.
I prefer ATI card with ATI Rage Pro Processor : 2D/3D card
Normally the banshee chipset is now available. Wait one month...

I hope it is not to late !!!
