video card (pci) recommendations?

PCI says a lot... but unfortunately that's my only option. I have an onboard agp voodoo3 but I think I'm being left in the dust by 3dfx. I was in denial until I just tried playing Ghost Recon

So anyway, I think I'm ready to get a new video card but all I have available is a pci slot. I've never been video card shopping before so this is a new experience for me. Any and all counsel would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running a P3 550 with 384 MB Ram and a year and a half old 15" monitor. Please don't let me leave it up to the punk at Best Buy to give me his personal recommendation. I want to hear from people that KNOW....

How does this one look?

That one is not bad but you can try to get one of the voodoo 5500(now hercules?) 64mb ones for the same price.

Here is the 64mb version of the same card for the same price driver support might be better for this card then the 5500

I think I'm gonna steer clear from the voodoo cards...

But your link is actually the same card as I linked to at BB. The product number is the same BB simply put 32 MB instead of the correct 64 MB. This one takes you right to the Mfgr specs

Any other good alternatives or advice someone can offer...
