Here are the benchmarks on Box #1 (Cyrix 100 MHz). We were unable to run any benchmarking games because the computer sucked so bad, especially with the other card. Here are the WinTune 98 - Video Tests.

Interestingly enough, the fill rate increased as the resolution did. The Voodoo3 3000 PCI didn't really smoke the 2MB Stingray Pro but did beat it. This video card allowed me to play StarCraft a little faster, but not much. One thing I did notice was that scrolling was a LOT better. It didn't hop and jump as you went down the page. So, if you would like your surfing to be smoother, I would go ahead and cough up the $150, but if you can live without it, don't. You're probably better off getting a 333MHz Socket 5/7 boost from Evergreen Technologies.
