I would use the step up and go to GTX if I were you. I plan to...but my 90 days just started last monday. my plan is to step up to a GTX...then pay very,very close attension to nVidia rumors and try to sell it just before some thing nice comes along for a fair amount yet. Or possibly run the GTX for a few months and sell it and then buy an Ultra and then step up the Ultra to next best thing when it gets here.

I have a 7800GT and x1950pro to fall back on while I am selling the GTX

i should probally sell one of those cards too while I am at it. My wife thinks I have too much computer crap laying around.

Do a search for the 3dfx voodoo3/4/5 running on source. It actually runs source not the best but it does. The voodoo3 card was released around 1998 and the 4/5 soon after. These cards are 9 years old so they shouldnt be able to run source but they do. I would never advise using source as a benchmark because if a 9 year old video card can run it then almost anything should be able to run it in the last 8 years.

Do you think sli voodoo2's would work? I could probably get 2 for about $20, but I guess it would only be for fun and probably just a waste.


I just found this doom 3 on sli voodoo 2's

It would most likely be a waste but make a valid point.

haha, i think i'll pass on the voodoo and go for the GTX. lol, i remember the days when I had need for speed 2 SE and one of my friends had a voodoo with 3D acceleration! I think all it really did at the time was give him snow and rain and maybe make it run at a higher res, I was so jealous.
