XGI Volari good or bad?

I'm going to be building my next computer soon and I need help on picking my video card.

My processor is going to be a Sempron 2600+ but I'm going to wait until 64-bit semprons are here (yes, AMD confirmed the production of 64-bit semprons arriving on July 30)

My two most heavily demanding games are Combat Flight Simulator 3 and Warcraft III. (I don't buy much)

Now I was looking at the XGI Volari V5.

The weaker V3 was able to run Doom 3 at low res. on medium. http://www.ocworkbench.com/2004/chaintech/volari3/chaintechv3_p5.htm
So I wondered if XGI would be a good choice?

Note: I AM ON A BUDGET AND CANNOT SPEND MORE THAN $60. CARD MUST BE AGP.
