Hi all!

I haven't used my 3dfx gear in a while and was wondering if their would be any concerns running pci 3dfx cards on modern motherboards. I don't wont to fry anything.

EG: Looking at building a Asrock Z97 Anniversary with a G3258 CPU.



It's got two PCI slots - ideal for my voodoo2 boards.

I guess it all comes down to the voltage and Mhz on the PCI slots, any other considerations???

Any clarification much appreciated!

Voodoo5 5500 PCI DVI x3 (exorcised MAC cards)
Voodoo4 4500 PCI
Voodoo2 1000 PCI x4 (two boxed and factory sealed)

Hi trigger,

I don't see any problems at hardware level if those PCI slots are PCI legacy slots...

The only difficulty could be to run a old OS like Windows XP (if you want play with the Voodoo2) on a new hardware configuration.

Bye bye

mmm knew I was missing something, thanks Glide.

I'll probably have to tapper it back a bit.

Saw this Motherboard Supports XP.

How about PCI-e sound cards for Windows XP? Any recommendations? If at all. Anyone tried USB ones?

I'll look further into drivers as well.

This looks interesting. With ISA slot too.

It's a really nice motherboard, it's hard to find motherboards wich have ISA these days.

Btw i have a ASUS Essence STX2 pci-e soundcard, and i can only recommend it. it's many many times better than onboard soundcards. Have many more details than the ASUS X79 DELUXE onboard sound. its really nice to have a soundcard with phono, as thers no need of adapters.

I'm using a old Sansui AU-D9 aplifer.
