Accel videocard

Accel videocard

I'm on the point of buying a super accelerated videocard. But: I still don't know
which one ;-). 2D absolutely needed to be fast, 3D is fine but not required.
I'm thinking of these cheap:

i740 (noname or Diamond)
Maxtrox G100
S3 Savage 3D

How is the support and how the accelerations go? Does X11 and (console or graphics console) work fine?

1. Accel videocard

I'm about to buy a new monitor and I'll probably have to change my old Trio64
1meg videocard. I'd like to have st. working fine and _accelerated_ with X and
(if possible) in SVGAlib programs (and maybe SVGATextMode). The videocard
should be about 4+ MB.  What do you suggest? PCI or AGP? Whatever well
supported (the cheaper the better).
