join here who own of voodoo3 and voodoo2 so we can talk each other about to help each other to improve v3 or v2 when anyone own have problem.
Let us not worry about tnt2 talk against v3 .
Ok thank smile
Hey rh71 I originally bought the V3 3k from Best Buy for $179. I only bought it there to test it out and see if I liked it. I liked it. I returned it to Best Buy and went to an on-line vendor called Micro X-press that's located in my area. Instead of ordering on-line, I went there and bought it for ~$20 cheaper for an OEM. They gave me a retail boxed V3 anyway. Very cool.
Since this is a V3 post I thought I would ask--my V3 is clocked at default 166. I previously had it clocked to 175 but couldn't notice a difference. For anyone who has oc'd the V3, are you able to tell a difference? I've only played it LAN so I've never had 16+ people in the game at once.
I have my V3 at 183 runs cool, and yes you notice a difference when you have it at higher clock speeds, make sure you have the Vsync disabled. All I'm using on my V3 is a little 486 fan that I screwed on the heatsink.
I haven't really noticed any difference while o/cing it yet, but that's ok
oh - btw - as someone was asking about the inserst and stuff, I know it works on some boards in general, because it is basically html stuff, but to find out how to do something, just edit their message
You can't actually submit any changes to it, but you can see what was typed, then use it yourself...
Good luck ..

NEG what system do you have (CPU/memory/graphics)?
I have a K6-2 350 with 66Mhz memory. Before I got my Voodoo3 (just using my old 4Meg PCI card) I had to run 320x240 to get 16.4 in crusher. With the 3DNow patch from AMD I got 20.7.
I dropped in a Voodoo3 2000 and run Q2 at 1024x768 with 31.6 fps in crusher, 45.3 in massive1 and 55.3 in demo1 (at that resolution I got 5.9 fps with 3DNow). Thats a 535% increase in speed. You would beleave how slow it ran on my Cyrix MII PR200.
If you don't use a graphics accelerator you are missing out. Not only does it boost the speed, it also adds a lot of graphics features like multitexturing, dithering, dinamic lighting, fog maps... that drastically improve the appearance of the game. Q2 looks totally differant.
Zakar that good you got 157 dollars better than store retail 179.99 plus tax .
I live in arlington,texas local sale tax 8.25 I think that too much ,so anyone order v3 from online more save money than buy store but if you buy from store that reason good for 30 days if you not happy.
Hey Zakar... $157, no tax and free shipping for the 3000 retail is exactly what they're offering it for at http://www.virtual-world.com
Is that where you got it from? I've been trying to find out more about that online dealer but only found 2 people who posted about them on http://www.resellerratings.com
They're also selling the OEM version for $144. By the way, I'm going to go for the OEM version - do you guys think it's worth it to go for the 3000 instead of the 2000... $40 difference... I'm upgrading from a regular 2MB video card so is it worth going for the 3000 and the TV out?
I current have v3 3000 and it run on my system look great no problem.
So depend on your system but when you get it that it should be fine with your system ut will you specific your system.
