so in my past . I was working in a computer store ( good, old pentium 2-3-4 era)

I had bought this voodoo 5500 because i was sure it was the best for performance but then 3dfx close down. Being the last 3dfx i ever got.

I kept the card in the original box and plastic as a souvenir with other pc memorablia.

But after looking on the internet for old info. *also on this site. I found out a lot of people were looking for that card.

So whats the deal for a 20year old card?


Thx

One of the fans went bad on my 5500 after using it for around 3 years. I upgraded cards and tossed it in the trash. DOH!

While is cool and nostalgic, I find using it today to be underwhelming in both obviously performance and ease of use. These things are often best left as fond memories of times past.

Or - you could sell it to somebody here for a reasonable price, also avoiding the huge eBay fees. And in particular, somebody who has been trying to get a Voodoo for a build forever and can't find one, and not somebody who already hoards several cards...^^^

*ahem*
