I just got a Pentium III, 933 Mhz with 128 MB RAM and was going to install FS98 from my 233 MHz, 64 MB RAM machine. Which 3D video cards you guys recommend and how difficult is to install the cards yourself?
Please let me know.

I've got a PIII 800 mhz with 128 MB RAM and i've got FS2000 on it, i have recently installed a "VOODO" 3D FX card and it works a treat! amazing graphics! It was easy to install just find you graphic gard bus slot in the back inside of the computer either take out the one that's in their or put the new one in and make sure it clicks but don't push it too hard or you'll bust it! Then put the CD you get with it in to the CD rom and follow the on scree instructions about installing the driver and software. Should be as simple as that! also look for updated patches on the internet for the exact card you have as it will help with any little problems that the card has with FS. I hope this helps!
ps: get the best VOODO card you can for the money you whant to spend try fetting a 64MB card but a 32MB card is aslo very good!

I also recomend Voodoo card. I have been using a used Voodoo3 2000 PCI that i bought from ebay a year ago and havn't had a problem with it once. Game compatibily is excelent so you wont find yourself with older games that dont work. I highly suggest a V3 or a V5, they are in my oppinion the best out there.

The others have hit on the right idea, my personal choice has always been the Voodoo or TnT cards, either of those are great cards. The other good one out there is the GeForce cards. There are quite a few models of each but you want to get something with at least 32Mb, 64 would be nice but doesnt really serve much purpose unless you have a 21" monitor.

Depends on personal tastes. People who have followed the voodoo series since voodoo 1 or 2 will definitely tell you the voodoo is better but in nowadays if I were you I would go for the Geforce 2. The newest Geforce cards used together with Nvidia's Detonator 3 drivers are unbeatable. TNT's are way outdated and Voodoo cards have been known to cause texture problems in FS.
