V2200 got buried by Voodoo2 quickly anyway, in both performance and compatibility. For that matter, a Voodoo1 is a better choice in almost every game. Verite chips are most interesting with Speedy3D and RRedline games but there aren't that many of them.

I'd imagine it would be a Pentium MMX 233 or so?
swaaye wrote:I think the advantages to 8MB would be 1) maybe smoother play from less texture memory swapping in some later games 2) higher resolutions. I'm not sure the latter is useful considering the performance level and the former probably won't show up on benchmarks other than a simple large texture test.

However, triple buffering may be a problem with 4MB cards because an extra screen buffer consumes more video RAM. I have no idea if their older OpenGL drivers have triple buffering support or whether it's on by default if so. This will definitely affect benchmark results because double buffering w/ vsync will lock the framerate near fractions of the refresh rate.
