I'm being saved from temptation. This sixteen megabyte Voodoo 3 has been on my local Craigslist for two weeks. I've never used a 3dfx card, and it would be interesting to see how it works on some of my systems. But it says untested, and $100.00 is a lot for a bit of ewaste should it not work. I thought I had the perfect solution - it must be untested because he doesn't have a system old enough to test it, so I emailed him and offered to bring over a computer to test it with and if I'm satisfied I'd buy the card. But I've received no reply, which makes me think he either knows it doesn't work, or is afraid that it won't, and would rather wait until someone is willing to pay the money for it "As is" so he can maintain plausible deniability. It's similar to someone selling a used car who won't allow you to take it to a mechanic to have them check it over.
i ignore those typ of ads unless its dirt cheap and there's a profitable out. 100 dollars is too high of a price, if it was 40 then maybe you could flip it for parts if not working
