The newish intel and S3 AGP 2D/3D graphic cards both sound good.  Is there any problem with running a 3DFX voodoo 2 with either of them, seeing as they 2D/3D combo cards and are AGP cards and the Voodoo 2 is a PCI card. Which is the better card. Which Also, just out of interest, What advantage have ATX cases/motherboards have over AT cases/motherboards?

Intel I740 = crap.  Buggy driver.  Slow in 3D, so-so image quality. (D3D, OpenGL)
Savage 3D = acceptable.  So-so speed and image quality, buggy driver.  (D3D, OpenGL)
Voodoo Banshee = acceptable.  Good speed and ok image quality. (D3D, OpenGL, Glide)
Matrox G200 = acceptable.  Best image of all, low 3D speed. (D3D, OpenGL)
VoodooII (3D only) = good.  Great speed, good image but limited to 800x600 gaming (D3D, OpenGL, Glide)
Riva TNT = great.  Great speed, very good image but lacks Glide.  (D3D, OpenGL)
VoodooII SLI (3D only) = great.  Fastest speed, good image but limited to 1024x768 (D3D, OpenGL, Glide)
Rage 128 = ???  Too new to be verify.

AT (Baby AT) = older design, usual layout for Socket7.
ATX = newer design, better cooling layout.

Also, the newer functions like ACPI, keyboard power on, software off... etc. only work with ATX boards.

Enhanced Intelligibility Without Cable Clutter

Challenge: The ESA office in Brussels wanted a reliable audio conference system for video conferences. Their requirement - No participant must be left out from the conference and the audio quality must not be compromised.

But can you use the i740 or the savage as your 2D component and hook the voodoo2 onto them for 3d?

Yes, you can, but why?  If you really want a seperate card for 2D and 3D, get the G200 for 2D (AGP) it has the best 2D output then put a VoodooII PCI in for 3D.
