Default Looking for 3dfx card for retro rig.

I'm looking into parts for a retro rig.I have a p3-900 with mobo and an awe32 as well as some others sb16 etc and I am now looking for a 3dfx card(i have a diamond monster 1 8mb)but I think I'll need a little more power,maybe a banshee or higher.Does anyone have some stuff laying around they would like to part with? My main motivation is running win98 and getting monoliths Blood running with the 3dfx patch enabled,the rest will be mame and some other emulators.I plan on building an stand-up arcade machine type replica to house it,using a 20 inch crt I have.Send me a PM if you have anything from that era you think I could use.....thnx all.

Its alright bud, I'll just stick this thread in the graphics card forum.

Just be careful of who you deal with if they ask for any money up front or anything. Our No-WTB thread rule is to protect buyers from being preyed on by people that don't meet our selling requirements.

I've got a Voodoo 2 8mb sitting around as well. i can't confirm whether or not it works.... the pc has been out of service FOREVER. It's been handled kind of rough... "Hey, dude, look at this *tosses it down on the desk*, It's a Voodoo2!"
