Hello,

I have a chance to get a Voodoo 3 3500 TV AGP for very little money, but without any cables.

This card has a special VGA+video connector, and it originally came with a big fat blue "breakout" cable.

Could I use some other converter cable for this card to enable attachment to a standard VGA monitor? Maybe some cable from Matrox G550 or their QID cards?

If I must have the original breakout cable, than this card is useless without it.

Use a DVI-I to D-Sub converter ;)

oh really? that's weird. In which case I'd keep an eye on eBay. I've seen them popping up on there inconveniently quite frequently. That blue pod must strike gold

Thank you for the replies.
A standard DVI->DSUB converter can not be used. Although the connector on the card looks like DVI, it is a bit longer. F**k.

Those blue pods do appear on Ebay from time to time, but they usually cost as much as a whole high-end Pentium 3 PC with a Voodoo 3 in it :D

I'll hunt for a complete Voodoo 3 3500TV set.

I see, it looks more like an "HDMI" of the past. Quite advanced for its time must I add.

Just keep an eye on auctions NOT "buy it now's". There was a complete set that nobody cared to bid on about a week ago. Maybe I should have got it.. and then sell it to you
