Yeah, it's boxed PCI version, but I still can't justify the price...

And this AGP version is cheaper, but I don't think it's cheap enough...

This card has been through the ringer. Rusted, a blown diode (I think), and untested. Unlikely to be functional.

$130.00 Buy-It-Now.

Pfffffffffffffffffffffffff the price of Voodoo 4 and Voodoo 5 cards or AWE 64 Gold damn.....
I prefer to wait for that cards instead of spending tons of money on them..
I did have a deal before 70 euro for Voodoo 5 5500 AGP, but it was too much for me, as they guy did tell me he can find me 5500 for 15 euro...

Sound Blaster Pro 2.0 and AWE64 Gold can be sold for the same amount of money this days.

Meanwhile the ct3600 witch has similar reverb and chorus effects as the awe32's, sounds as good as a awe64 and uses 30pin simms can be had cheap.

Meanwhile the voodoo2, witch used to be a 30-40$ card as skyrocketed.
250$ for a set of simi matching voodoo 2's.

What is it? A basic 2d card?

CAD Accelerator and one of the few video cards that supports Dual Monitor / Extended Desktop on windows 3.11. This one in this listing is the cut-down version and does not have the expansion ports for extra video ram. You can clearly see the solder points where the expansion ports would of been.

Beige box from 1200,- EUR: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Highscreen-PC-Kompakt … ur/302605835129
I bought the same for about thirty, although without the keyboard.

It's even better, it doesn't work and it comes without HDD, so the seller is badically asking money for nothing 😎
