Dear 3dfxer,
I have been collecting 3dfx card after I join this forum not long ago.
Sincerely hope you can give me some advices.

Here are what I have;

1 v5500 agp
1 v5500 pci
1 v4500 agp
2 v4500 pci
1 v3000 agp
4 v2 pci (3 Diamond monster 3d2 12mb 1 STB 12mb < BlackMagic?> )
1 v1 pci (Orchid Righteous 3d 4mb)

As you can see, I am not trying to get rare item since I don't have money for those, just like to have some touch from each Voodoo generation.

So, what should I look after next? V3500?
If it not bother too much, can you tell me why should I go for your suggestion?

Thank you very much!!!!

Hi,

If I were you I would look for a banshee.
Since you said you wanted one from each
generation:

generation

Since you're trying to get a card from each Voodoo generation, a Banshee (as said omega_supreme). A nice Diamond (agp - 16 mb sgram) would be perhaps easy to find.
A 3500 is always a nice card : the most powerful V3 !
And a VoodooRush, why not ?
Later, perhaps, you will try to find the V5 Mac.
And one day, you will try (because many 3dfx collectors try) to find a rare card.

FYI
Thank you for the suggestion, I got A Diamond Monster Fusion ( Banshee)AGP in hand now, start looking for VoodooRush....
Just curious, Is Voodoorush considered as a Generation? or just a transitional product?

Thanks!

For many people, the worst 3dfx card.
But also the first 3dfx attempt to get a card doing the 2D and the 3D [2D -> Alliance Semiconductor or Macronix ; 3D -> The Rush].

ps : A Jazz Multimedia VoodooRush has a very nice blue pcb.
