I'm at the ground floor of my research related with GIS. I would appreciate
if someone could let me know if there is any any Open GL type (medium or high) Graphic board for Windows 2000 OS? I would like to buy one to level up the performance of GIS software (ARC/VIEW 3D analyst) installed
on a Windows 2000 machine. If there is no such one to the date, could you please recommend an alternative. Thanks in advance.

Yeah, there are loads of them. More or less all new cards is shipped with Win2k drivers. Or atleast they are/should be downloadable from the manufacturers site.

If you want a medium card, you should look at cards based on vNidias chips. The latest chips are called GeForce GeForce2 and Quadro. TNT and TNT2 is also good, but a tad old by now. ELSA (http://www.elsa.com) got some.

If you are looking for higher-end cards, you can look at Evans & Sutherland (http://www.es.com) , they got some cool cards.

There are also some chips that might be interesting.
GLINT from 3dlabs (http://www.3dlabs.com/)
Wildcat and Panther from Intergraph (http://www.intergraph.com/)

Note that the majority of the high(er)-end cards is only shipped with NT-drivers. Win2k is an NT-system though.
