I found a Quantum3D Obsidian2 x24 in my closet and I was curious what they were worth these days?

Make sure you have the original Medusa Cable with it, or it won't be worth much imo.


if you do I would not give more than 180 a 220 Euros for one, it's old and all but on the other hand these were mass produced for the US market back then and to me all the greed for extra coin is just killing this wonderful hobby.

Just seeing these go for over 1000 euros is just an insult to the community, this way cards will only be available for the greedy and rich morons and the actual worthy collectors that actually understand on how to use them and take care of them are left aside.

I run the x-dfx community at Facebook as Willem B, my old collection you can see this galler where I go as Gold Leader:
https://www.3dfx.ch/gallery/index.php/3dfx_collectors/collector_goldleader/prevgas

Had tons of cards incl the X-24, V6K and many others.

here the X-24 I had:

I paid nothing for that X-24 it was a gift from an old friend, a normal value if it's boxed would be 350 a 400 euros and no more, but then again I can't tell you the value since it all depends what a buyer would be willing to give you for it

Just passing my opinion on how I'd value these things, I don't have room for greed, but proper and fair values instead, only then you will get a good reputation, greedy sellers are mostly avoided anyway.

Yea those got for a few hundred at least elft alone 1000+ Eur if sold on ebay, totally unacceptable n my book, but not something I can control left alone anyone can't for that part.
It's a shame such rates are accepted since it makes it near impossible for those that actually have proper knowledge and know how to treat and use these cards with the proper respect.

Why not put it to use man it's a nice 3D add on card for a lovely retro build, and just use it for them retro gaming day moments, that is what I'd really do, since buying these are just not possible due to the capitalism that has ruined this what was once a fun hobby.

Feel free to DM of it on what you want for it I would love one for my Athlon 700 Slot A system but I won't pay big coin for it like these rich people tend to do alot, my main goal is to bring back the old and original values so this hobby can be enjoyable for all of those that love 3dfx & Quantum3D cards alike.

It's been 3 days and I have not received an email from you yet, for all I know it would not take longer than 5 a 10 minutes to make some photo's of the item you are trying to sell here and not 3 days xD
Despite you being a new member, I find it strange I got no reply yet, it doesn't add up, if I offer someone like an X-24 I mail then indirectly on what I am offering or I post pics of the item in the forum, photos help prove what one is selling, and so far I have seen nothing.

Hereby I hope you can email the photos of that X-24 you are trying to sell here.

it could be you don't know how things work here, if that is the case;

To send someone an email you click their account name and send an email that auto links to the member's email address.
This forum uses a very old platform, hence it is different that most other places.

Also I think you'd be breaking as forum rule for not have post photo's of what you are selling, there is that as well

If you came here to earn money without proving on what you are trying to sell, as in posting no images photos or videos of your items, that does come over as doubtful.

I have asked you kindly a few times to mail me owith photo's of videos of your offering.
you replied to mm with the following:

And not one time you actually even made time to do that simple thing.

Which would be around 5 to 10 minutes to make pics and send a mail, you get the idea, even I did play along but I somehow knew something fishing was going down.


Even you as a new member, there is no introduction of what who you are why you joined this forum, it's all kind of vague.

Hereby I reported this thread to the owner & Moderation team of this forum.

If sending an email is too hard or left alone posting a photo on what you are trying to sell, well it's been about a week and response is near to no where.

Hereby I have lost total interest.
