    I have a 5500 AGP. Loved it back in the day and recently put it back in action.

    I was too late for it. My first home-built PC had an 8600GT in it. xD But next time I get a Pentium III system, it's definetly going in there; it's just a shame 3dfx were saving AGP 4x for Rampage, otherwise I could put it in anything with an AGP slot.

    Why
    the AGP2PCI adatpor makes ANY gains you might see completely null and void
    because the PCI connection is AFTER THE AGP connection and BEFORE the pcie connection you are still limited to PCI66/133 transfer rates so you are hurting the performace

    If you use AGP2PCI adaptor you can have the full compatibility with the V5k6.
    In 2012, there are some goods news drivers (like SFFT 1.9 or Koolsmoky) compatible with the graphic card connected on this adaptor.

    For example, I can play Doom 3 on my Asus Maximus IV Extreme MB:

    nb: try to use Voodoo card on old motherboard with agp slot and try it on new motherboard with PCIexpress slot and you will see the big difference!

    Copper sheet came in. I adjusted it for joining both heatsink.
    I did 3 holes in the copper sheet and 3 holes more in the base from left heatsink.

    if its a AGP2PCIe adapter that's another story buy PCI is slower then AGP and because you are passing the cards data OVER a pci interface you are still limited by PCI100's ~400MB/s rate
