I wish to run Janes USAF and have been told I need a 3d card to do so.  
I have been told the Voodoo2, 12mb, PCi will do the job.  It fits my budget of under $100 Australian, but other than that I have no idea.
I would appreciate comments on this or any other reccomended cards.
I have a P233MMX, S3 Tri 64+ graphics card with 4Mb, 64mb RAM and a 13Gb Hard Drive.

A voodoo2 sounds like the best bet for your price range.  I've played that flight sim and it isn't too terribly demanding (compared to Falcon4).

For anyone else from usa who cares to comment, 100$AU = 58$US at current rates.

There are LOTS of video cards out there that are either add-ons (like the voodoo2) or have the 3D accelerator built into one card.

The voodoo2 sounds like a good bet and if the price is right, why not?

If you want to check out a different product line or make, check out some of the nVidia line of cards.  Slightly faster than the Voodoos

happy gaming

hmm with that budget I think Voodoo 2 is the best, other wise the next best would be Voodoo3....a bit more expensive but much better and will last you longer.

Voodoo3 stinks.  I had lots of conflicts and problems, called Voodoo tech support and they told me to buy a different card!
