Alright, I've decided to drop my 1.4 Athlon down to a 1.2, and the GF3 was just too much. Can someone recommend a good video card to me. I want it to have good FPS. I was thinking GF2, but there's 4 or 5 different kinds. It can be $150 - $200.

I have aboslutely no idea why'd you downgrade...but anyway:
Geforce 2 Pro/Ultra
Radeon 64m DDR
Kyro 2

are all decent cards... Radeon is the slowest of the batch.

Are you actually looking for card suggestions or graphics chipset suggestions. The reason I ask is because the obvious drop down from a GeForce 3 is a GeForce 2 Ultra then a Pro then a GTS. The Kyro is meant to compete with a high end GeForce 2 MX and the Radeon is in that range too. I don't know about specific cards though. I have heard the Elsa is a good manufacturer.
