That creepy clown on the front of the box probably hindered it's sales more than help it.

Clowns were kind of a thing in the 90s. That being said I don't think it would flote down there.

At least Matrox was from Quebec. They love clowns and buffoons.

Coming from Quebec, it really should be Bonhomme instead.

Interesting, maybe from an Arcade Cabinet? The description mentions Daytona?

It looks like a derivative of a Voodoo 3. The description (if it can be trusted) says 16mb ram, so that would rule out a traditional Voodoo Velocity. My guess is its one of those kinda rare Voodoo 3 1000 OEM boards I've heard tell of. Other than as a curiosity board, I would assume its not worth more than $5.00. It would be cool for a Voodoo guru to give more details on this little board.

Anyone need a bunch of high end PCI (not express) cards. 5 8400GS for 50 USD plus shipping. Decent deal if there is any chance you need multiples.

10 Video cards...looks like a decent mix of DOS to late Windows 98 cards. Nothing particularly special but good if someone doesn't happen to have these.

So..this is a little pricey but might be worth it for someone who is looking for both a 386 and a 486 build. Includes a Cyrix DX2_66 CPU/Motherboard/Ram and a 386dx40 with motherboard and RAM.

its a voodoo4500 running at 143 mhz with 16mb of ram.
Its a vsa-101 card so any voodoo5500 or 4500 drivers should work.

It should work with VSA-100 drivers, to some extent at least. This is more of a collectible item anyway, so drivers doesn't matter all that much.
Too bad it is US only, would be bery nice piece to my 3dfx collection... :angry: On the other hand I can imagine price will go through the roof anyway, meh. :dead:

This seller is hawking brand-new Ti 486SLCs for $12.95 each. The big caveat is that they're surface-mount versions. :P Wonder what you could do with one?

Also here's an "ETEQ" 486SLC I found just now while searching for the above. Never heard of that make before!

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/ETEQ-ET486SLC2-S ... Sw~e5ZOUHW

Price isn't bad but the seller seems to think $179 is a reasonable shipping rate to canada so I won't be bidding anytime soon.
