Hi all

Thought i'd show off my recently acquired Voodoo5-6000 Revision 3700A with the PCI-Rework. Big thanks to Gold Leader from VoodooAlert for tracking down this gem in just 3 days!

It is fully functioning and has passed a 2 hour stress test of 3D Mark 2001SE!, I will be adding to this thread once I finished the permanent system/home for it!

Here it is :)

Ooh, nice! This card is in such good condition.

There's someone over on Vogons who posted a system with the same card, CPU and motherboard a few years back.

Can't wait to see more photos of a complete system. :)

If you acquired locally (city of churches), that may be Ryan Nunn's 3dfx gift for RGSSAA optimisation (IIRC).

Yeah, Ryan re-compiled the binaries for the OGL drivers for WinXP after 3dfx went under. I included them in my Bansheedrivers mix with the Voodoo 5 control panels.

Glad to see you got it running as well ,as you posted at x-3dfx :)
You could post pics of the system when it's completed tho, I'm glad I found a 6K for someone that takes good care of it, we needed that within the 3dfx community for quite some time :)

Brilliant idea when it comes to them burnt copper heatsinks, if you need any more help lemmie know.

Well if you need help I can always look around for ya :) as owner of the x-3dfx community I have plenty contacts to help a fellowman out :)
I just know where to look hehe and no not all go for a fortune the prototypes? yes they are very expensive a TITAN RTX is like 30% cheaper for some cards so no best not to take part of that unless you don't mind it.

A Rampage goes for well over 15K USD maybe even more and well to me that isn't worth it, it's capitalism at it's best, the actual value to me would be around 1200 Euro or say 1400 USD maybe but yea,..

Normal production cards can come for good deals if you are seeking a specific type let me know and I can see what I can find for you of course :)

HI There SWZSSR, awesome hardware you have there. Would be my dream to have/build them like you did, but I just dont have the time or money for it unfortunately. But being a 3dfx fan myself, I just love what you did and I have a couple of suggestions to you if you like. You can get a PCI SD card to IDE adapter. Get a 240gb SD card and install windows on it. It will boot up the windows as if its on ssd, and also what about getting it a new modern case in black? just my 2 cents. :)

Myself I am trying to bring back to life my old 20 year old pc and put in my v5 5500 AGP in it to play older games like ut99, ut2003, ut2004 etc. But I am having trouble trying to get it to boot into windows on my hdd. It just seems to fail even though the motherboard can detect all the hardware in the bios. I'll keep trying. :)

Hi SWZSSR, is this Marcus the one who modifies the Voodoo 5 series cards with faster memory and VSA-100 chips?
