I need a geforce card that can almost guarantee stability when running on or near 100mhz AGP.... Right now, my MSI geforce 2 is preventing my p3-700e from being stable @ 150 fsb, which is quite annoying ;).... any ideas?

Considering that good Geforce cards cost about the same or more than a motherboard that has 1/2agp bus you might consider that.
If you still want another geforce card try the asus for 100mhz agp.

Heck, its one thing finding a card to hit that. Its another thing to find a card that will last longer than a month or two at that fsb.

Is it not possible to change your fsb/pci multiplier?
Atm its prolly 1/3 (100/33 = PCI 33.33 x2 = AGP 66.66)
If you can reduce it to 1/4 at a high fsb, you will keep the PCI speed within spec.
Eg, a fsb of 133 running at 1/4 FSB/PCI multiplier means that you get...

1/4 (100/25 = 133/33 x2 = AGP ~66)

Make sure AGP sidebanding addressing and fastwrites are off.
