I'm looking for something to complement a PCI Voodoo 5500. I have a couple on my short-list for a BX motherboard running Win98SE: GeForce FX 5900XT, FX 5900 Ultra and Radeon 9800 Pro.
I'm thinking of running games from the late 90s/ early 00s, and any DX9+ games are likely to run on another build. The BX motherboard is running a Tualatin, Celeron 1.4Ghz on a S370 Powerleap adapter.
I understand that NV provided better driver support, so I'm leaning towards the FX series. However, cards from the FX59xx series seem to be wider than 1-slot? My 5900XT is single-slot, but the 5900 Ultra is slightly wider: What's the fastest single-slot? Maybe they differ from manufacturers?
Also, the Radeon 9800 Pro is single-slot and appealing. Maybe any Radeon issues (with fog tables et al) could be made redundant because I'll have a Voodoo 5500 to complement it...?
Any input appreciated.
