I actually really like my MX460 from MSI. AFAIK it's the fastest DX7 card and it seems to be quieter and cooler than most real GF4 cards. Also supposedly NVIDIA cards have better DOS compatibility than Radeons. Yeah, you miss out on some titles, but generally those would be better served by a faster system overall (my system is running a Tualatin).
And yeah, you don't get a Voodoo 5 because it's a fast early 2000s card — it's not. You get if you need to play Glide games at 1600x1200 and/or with additional effects (AA, etc). Glide wasn't essential in early 2000s, so we're mostly talking about late 90s games here.
