hi just wondering if this is a good card and do u know if those drivers on voodoofiles.com will allow it to run the same on winxp if any of u use it with winxp

thanx......

p.s how does it run more modern games like wolfenstein return to castle

being a true fan and lover of 3dfx stuff i would buy it, but as a collector not as a gamer, that card rocks, it was a great card and i could have some fun with it on a 2nd system, but if u really plan to get a card for modern gaming and want a good one, get the fastest geforce u can

it was an AWESOME card for it's time, very revolutionary in terms of FSAA and some other stuff

but it's time is gone

it's FSAA however is still the best lookin stuff in town

but performance wise and feature wise, that aint so no mo

Your Geforce MX probably spanks it. :)

Id just save a few more bux and get a Geforce 2 GTS 32MB

The V5 lacks T&L that your MX does have

so if you play any games that take advantage of T&L it will be faster on the MX vs. the V5

hmm in software T&L the v5 ranks 5th in it on madonions site with a athlon
lol but you've probably forgotten more about video cards then ive learned

software T&L is relient on the CPU not the video card

Hardware T&L means it's on the video card

I have one Voodoo3 3k AGP to play all the 3D stuff , and one PIII 1000 to play the T&L stuff .

Still i think that i do need any Ge Force :rotfl:

The Voodoo 5 5500 aint the fastest around......... but it get's the work done...... on my Tbird 1.2 @ 1.4 it kicks ass!
In Quake 3 Arena i get 98 Fps ! A geforce 2 mx 400 might do 85
a mx 200 wil be lucky to get 70 fps ! If you have the money get a geforce 2 Ti For 150 bucks it averages 150 fps in quake 3 !
and the v5 anti aliasing kicks ass
