What I've done wrong?
I plugged the V3 PCI card in, boot to windows, it recognizes it, boot.
then I installed latest AmigaSport drivers - when it was installing the tools it whined something about couldn't register some components, okay, I just click ignore, and reboot after done.

Everything seems to be fine, but when I tried 3dMark2001 SE, it didn't show Voodoo3 option in the rendering platform part..
Then I thought something just went wrong 'cause the it couldn't register some 3dfx tools components, so I uninstalled the tools and card, boot to safe mode and manually install the amigasport drivers, boot to windows and try again, but no luck, still no V3 in rendering platforms.
then I tried to set vid card priority in bios from AGP/PCI to PCI/AGP, and everything went fine until it was going to log in - the screens stayed black until suddenly it throws a bsod on me, some radeon thingie (probably RadClocker)..

What did I do wrong?

If I remember, you should execute driver_setup.exe -> reboot; then, setup.exe -> reboot. It should be fine.

What do you mean by that?
I'm trying to install it as "secondary" display adapter (or actually as third, as R9800 Pro already shows as two by default)
