Constant blue screens from Video card dll's

I'm wondering, I use a Voodoo 5500 and more and more lately, I can't run anything. I've been trying a lot of game demos to see what I would like, but they hardly work. Age of Wonders 2 and Soldiers of Fortune 2 both give blue screen on 3dfx dll's (Beginning dump of physical memory) and others have all sorts of graphical glitch and unlegible text (Jedi Knight 2) has that. My drivers are (from Dxdiag) :

Does anyone know if I can fix my problems with different drivers or should I just buy a new card? I don't have much money for one so if I should buy, can I get suggestions on inexpensive gaming cards?

Is this a good card :
MSI MS-8853 GeForce3 TI500 64MB DDR AGP


Could someone give me a site where I can see card reviews? It might help me look.

Also, for those who didn't know from the 'beginning dump of physical memory', I run windows 2000
