got a great deal on an old g4 400 sawtooth. it's got a ATI rage 128 pro agp card that works great, and the second card is a 3dfx voodoo 3 2000 pci which doesn't. i've looked around and it appears that 3dfx is gonzo, i've tried the nvram hacks to reset the cards and it still doesn't work. anyone else have any luck getting the card to work in a dual setup?

i'm running 10.3.3.

I don't think that 3dfx cards were ever supported by OSX, and I doubt they ever will be. I could be wrong, but considering that they've been out of business for years (bought by NVIDIA and shut down), the chances of getting their products to work with a newer OS version are slim to none.

that's what i figured. no worries, the computer was only 400 CAD dollars. i can put another video card in later.

thanx for the feedback.
