I have a Compaq Presario 5002US and I would like to upgrade it with a TnL Video cards that supports Texture and Light, (TnL).  On this machine, the only available slot for a video card is a PCI slot.  What cards are available for PCI slots that support TnL?  Also, is there a site that gives good objective evaluations of the various cards available?

The Geforce 2 MX 32mb, I think supports TnL, its got digital vibrance as well (a distinguishing feature from other bigger members of its family), the good news is that its available in a pci version for all those who got somethin else sittin in their agp slot. Can be picked up fairly cheap these days.
