    My opinion is that they should be pretty much the same. I got one at Circuit City almost free after mail-in rebate......they are picky about IRQ sharing though in 98. Be sure you have a free IRQ or something you can disable.

    Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and hit ok...go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.
