Aaagh! I just gave away an old Gateway 2000 PII machine which had a PCI "Elsa Victory Erazor" installed (4mb i think?)! If i had seen this post a few days earlier then it would have been yours! Anyway i will keep an eye out for any Riva 128 cards for you (y)

@ keropi

I have to ask why you should want such an 0ld graphics card, especially in both flavours of slot??

@Powerpie5000: dang, bad luck :(

@Kin: as I found out those works VERY nice inside an older pc to play DOS games. not all vga's are the same in plain-old-DOS: some have scrolling bugs (tseng, matrox ones come in mind first) some others do not display modeX correctly, and some do not offer anything higher than VESA1.1 support in their BIOS... those riva128 cards are speedy, no vga-core bugs that I have found via testing normal "problematic" software and do offer VESA3.0 support :LOL: So after getting an AGP one I am after a pci version for my 486/100 and maybe a spare (spares don't hurt!)
here is a stolen image of Jazz Jackrabbit (an example game) and it's problems with a Tseng ET6000 card:
