    Tech nostalgia...AWESOME. If 3DFX is still around, the gpu race would have been much more interesting...

    ^ Man, I couldn't agree more. With 3dfx still in the mix, we'd all have a wide array of competitive cards to choose from and a much newer version of the Glide API available. It would be neat to see how games today would make use of a new and greatly improved Glide, instead of the same old same old.

    Ah! 3DFX, my first silicone based chip to overclock.
    I remember this website I found that sold an OC kit for 15.00 bones for the V3 5000.
    If I remember correctly? The kit had a good fan, mounting hardware, instructions and a tweaked drive CD.

    There needs to be a Hall of Voodoo to remember the beginnings.

    That is so awesome to see ! I don't have a Voodoo 5 6000 but I do have a small collection of older graphics cards from 1999-2001 (boxed also).

    Voodoo FTW!

    I got an old Dell Dimension Txxx series with an old Voodoo 3 and a Pentium 3 slot A CPU @ 650mhz to run HL2 max settings no lag! I can only imagine what can be done with Voodoo 5!

    Love to see what you could do with a 680 classified, your custom fans, and the EVGA EVBot.
