3dfx Voodoo3 3000 PCI (Page 3/3)

The Voodoo3 3000 PCI retains all of the quality and value of the AGP Voodoo3s, while making a very good option for those not blessed with an AGP slot. If you're stuck with an onboard video card or you simply do not have AGP, I highly recommend the Voodoo 3 3000 PCI. It will definitely boost performance over almost any current PCI card. I also recommend the 3000 PCI if you've got an old system laying around gathering dust because it doesn't have a 3D card or an AGP slot. If you've already got a system with a Voodoo2, it might be better to just add a second V2, especially since you can get them for very cheap now. The only reason to replace a Voodoo2 might be to free up some PCI slots, or for better 2D performance in Windows.

If you're in the market for a new video card for you PCI system, you can't go wrong with the Voodoo3 3000 PCI.
