I've also had pretty good luck with my Cirrus card. My main WfW3.11 system uses 
a Cirrus Logic 5446 PCI video card (1MB) that has drivers available that work 
great for Windows 3.1, NT 3.51, and 95. I've been using it for a long time in 
3.1 and NT 3.51 with 800x600 16-bit color and I've never had a problem with it, 
so if a newer Cirrus card had the drivers you needed, it might be something to 
try. I also used to use an Avance Logic 1MB card that also worked pretty well 
in 3.1, but I don't remember if I ever found NT 3.51 drivers for it.

I can at least confirm that experience.  My old CL-GD5248 with 2Mb
gives an excellent account of itself, even with my (equally) old
interlaced monitor.  It does have native drivers for OS/2, as well as
Win3x, plus eight languages of documentation, including Dutch.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure about Win95 and NT3.51 drivers ... and
it's a VESA bus card.  Not to mention, it's the only one I've got.

I will consult my private guru; perhaps he has a suggestion.
Meanwhile, like Glenn said, "Google time."
