  1. well today i was looking at some stuff i got from an old computer (about 7 years old), and i happioned to stumble over what appirers to be a vodooo 3 2000 pci card made my 3DFX

    i google picure surched it and it comes up identical to my card exeprt the ramsyncs

    now my question
    whtcih will be better, my intergrated graphics of 4mb fire gl
    or the voodooo 3

    Its an emachine 500i
    the system is like also 7 years old and has
    Some old Florada brand board
    500mhz cele
    165mb ram
    ingreated Grafx
    3.5 gb hdd
    now if this card is better where can i get drivers for such an old card

    thanks for your time :grinthumb

    Definately the Voodoo 3 dude :grinthumb (should be a lot faster and has more onboard ram, plus unlike onboard video it deosn't share your system ram) .. although this is still a very old card by today's standards but you obviously already know this :wave:

    I remember my first computer, I had two Voodoo 2s hooked together to play Quake 2! I was supposed to get a $40 rebate from 3DFX but, well you know the story...I thought I was sooo high tech then haha. I should have hung onto those cards, ah nostalgia. Funny but to this day I still play Q2! It's a classic.
