    4a) Should be able to get £35-40 for that (I was so tempted to try & buy it myself for a bargain price).
    It is a quite sought after card by flight simmers as it lets us run old 3Dfx optimised sims whilst still having a powerful modern AGP card installed for new sims.
    As such the PCI version is worth more than the AGP.

    I imagine you could get a few £££'s for the voodoo card as its got a bit of novelty value since the company died, I remember reading that some guy sold one of their last uber-cards that was never realeased properly for sommit along the lines of £10,000

    the one that went for 10k will have been the one with 4 chips, that would have been an uber card for sure

    the cards with 4 chips wenrt that good acctually... they were fast, but thats about it. they had too many image quality problems one of which was a major hardware bug - in 32bit colour depth, 8 bits are used for alpha, ignore them. that leaves 8-8-8 each for the RGB. the problem was the *most* significant bit was lost for each colour, which gives 21bit total image quality - not good. note that v5500 cards, in 16bit, acctually wasnt 16bit, but 24bit iirc, so 16bit looked better... anyway they didnt do dx8 or 9 stuff and wouldnt work well with any recent game due to lack of driver support. also being 3.3v agp, i couldnt use my v5 5500, so my mums got it. also my 2 chip one was about a foot long, maybe more, so 4 chips? dunno if it would fit in most cases!
