Very nice!

These cards seem to attract some frantic bidding on eBay.

3dfx 5500 agp was only made in 1999.
That was the most expensiv card att that time and only few was sold.
It was the last 3dfx card in sale and it have bean real colector card.
Permomace on the card is very bad.
Weak in open GL
Good in Direct 3d
About 1000p in 3dmarks 2001
But games like Unreal T ,Need for speed porche , Seriuos sam run good on it.

Is just a collector card today not for gameing any more
5500 is not esay to find today , if you find one buy it!
Price ? from 100$ i think

That is a another 3dfxcard they build som few Vodoo 6000 Abot 100 cards
with 4 cpu!
,price on this one from 1500$ on Ebay

thant is a nice system...on mine i have 2 old Voodoo2 with SLI cabel...and just got the new drivers from your link...i must say they kick in ePSXemu!!!
nothing is that fast...i'm not saying the FPS, but the effect of speed in GranTourismo is awsome...better than in GeForce2 MX400 in other computer with P3@800, and even better than the Kyro2 Prophet 4500 from Hrcules in this computer!!
