Is $45 shipped for a Voodoo3 2000 16 MB PCI card a good deal?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I have a PowerMac 7500 with a 7600 motherboard and a G3/400 processor at home with a dead video system. I need a new video card for it to work so I figured I'd spend the $20 or $30 more it would require to get a nice graphics card instead of a crappy Rage II or something. Someone offered me a Voodoo3 2000 16 MB card for $45 shipped... is this a good deal? I don't know much about the 3dfx cards, but I do know that the most demanding graphical task I'll be using this computer for would be Unreal Tournament. No OS X, it's too much of a hassle and it would be slow on this computer, that's why I'm considering a 3dfx card.

    Seems like a good price, just looking at auctions on ebay. Though it still seems steep to me... pci is more expensive than the agp version, go figure.

    Well, it would make sense that the PCI is more expensive than the AGP. You don't want a little Voodoo card tying up your AGP port, do you? The PCI allows it to drive a second monitor on any computer that supports it, while the AGP is much more limited.
