Greetings, good folk of Experts Exchange:

I have an aged, but still useful, Gateway 450 MHz Pentium II with Windows 98, and 384 MB Ram. I am looking to revive this PC to play some old Windows 98 3D PC games, but I need a 3D graphics/video card. Can any of you fine techno wizards make a recommendation of a suitable, reliable card model/manufacturer for a PCI slot, for my tride & true, but antiquated PC?

Many thanks,

Zovoth

An nVidia FX5200 would also be a good match for that system.

Thanks to all who helped me with this question...I'm a newbie, just learning the ropes of awarding points, especially for multiple experts...however, now I've got the know-how.

Thanks to JJDurant, your answer did the trick!!!

Hi zovoth,

if you're looking to play older games, i'd suggest looking for a second hand 3dfx voodoo 3 card on ebay. U should be able to get them extremely cheap these days.

Cheers!
