Wanted: ANY 3dfx AGP video card *FOUND!*

Recommended Posts

I recently received an old Alienware tower (Pre-Dell!) circa 2000 with an AGP slot that is not being used. I really would love to stick some form of 3dfx AGP card in this thing, but I really don't feel like ordering from the Russian Federation ;)

 

Does anyone possibly have one (any one, model or ram size I could care less) that they would be willing to part with? Either for money or for trade?

 

PM me!

I don't know about the newer 3DFX cards, but I've read that the older cards (or at least the Voodoo 3), the AGP version was no better than PCI.

 

I don't know if this helps at all :)

This is true. I just want to fill the unused AGP slot and free up the PCI slot (that currently has a Radeon) ;)

I'm the other way around :) I have a Voodoo 3 in the PCI, and an nVidia in the AGP (GeForce 2 Ultra I think??)

The GF2 Ultra is a very nice card. I had one of these in a PIII 850 build some time ago (well, it was the Quadro equivalent version) and it was very impressive!

My Win98 setup is an Athlon 64. I prefer the Voodoo 3 for the games that will use it (plus, the Glide games, obviously), but I swap to the GF2 for things like Quake 3 engine. I've got a pile of old video cards, the the GF2 is the most powerful AGP card in it...though I have a GF7 somewhere around here that I seem to recall being AGP...
