Monster Fusion Banshee AGP Sgram and VooDoo 5500 pci currently. Would have had a VooDoo 4500 pci to go along with them, but the one I purchased off of ebay member Rottentreats had physical damage and killed one of my Slot 1 test beds, so it was sent back. Still need to pick up one, or maybe a Voodoo 3 to have on hand.

I have waaay too many 3dfx things to list so I will just state the main/awesome things.

I have EVERY single US Voodoo Series Box and card. (in some instances I have several of the same one) Pics are a bit out dated, but they give you a general idea.



Not pictured above but recently I got the only box I was missing, The Voodoo4 4500 PCI for Macintosh. Complete retail. There are only 2 or 3 of these known in the world.



I also have this 4 foot wide, 3 foot high, vinyl banner. SOO cool.



I have this kickass 3dfx lunchbox.




Last but NOT least - my TWO Voodoo5 6000's. Both FULLY fucntional and teamed up with their Voodoo Volts.

My first one is now in a display case to be appreciated. You will see the Voodoo5 6000 box that was custom made my my Canadian friend RazrX. (obviously the V6K was a prototype and never made it to marker, ie: no box)



My other V6K that I won on eBay about a month or two ago I do a bit of fraggin with.

Creative Voodoo 2 8MB and 3dfx Voodoo Banshee 16MB....I recently got my hands on a Voodoo 3 series card...haven't checked it yet.

There's an old PIII machine that I wanna revive (with Windows 98 :p ) and play some old-school games on it. A little pointless...but i'm a nostalgic idiot.

Out of curiosity, how does the Voodoo 5 6000 run more modern games?

The 2 I have left, those are original bought and owned when released.
I exchanged the Creative Voodoo 2 with 2 Diamond Monster 3D Voodoo 2's in SLI later, my brother has them sitting in a case.
The Voodoo 1 is reference from 3Dfx

rottentreats, can you tell me the difference between the Voodoo3 3000 AGP Blue Box and the Vooodoo3 3000 AGP Green box? when i was around 12 or 13, I got a Vooodoo3 3000 Green boxed with TV output, but i haven't seen any other with TV output.

Btw, I envy your collection, I would have wished to have such a collection my self ^^

btw, that 6000 above is freakin sweet. Those are rare and pretty valuable. I bet those pushed some amazing frames back in their day! I wonder how the 4x VSA-100 chips on that card stacked up to the Riva TNT 2 when it came to frame rates

Do you guys realize you're posting in a thread from 2005 and that the guy you're speaking to posted a year ago?

Edit: Meh, it seems you want to talk to the past even though you'll never get a response. A mod can go ahead and delete this post.

You don't get it Neo, 3dfx threads are timeless. When was 3dfx in business? When was their last card released? Most of these threads are "throwback" threads.

Kids in school are talking about sh!t, reading and commenting on way outdated books and newspaper articles about products and events that happened in the world many many years ago. What is wrong with those people??

Well, let's just say even a V6K doesn't play newer games better. Half-Life 2 was the last thing that it ran "OK" on..

By blue box you must mean the Voodoo3 3500 TV/AGP. The card that comes with the big blue "breakout" cable...

A green box Voodoo3 3000 AGP would have an s-video output along side its vga like pictured below
