I got a V3 3000 PCI and paid $60 for it back in 2017 (used). Only mod was the fan installation and still runs.

In my area voodoo 3 3000 seem pretty common, I think I have 11 of them (I had more at some point, but I exchanged them), and I never paid even a double digit for any card.

Last one I bought was few days ago !

I also have 5 Voodoo 3 3000s but all are AGP. PCI cards are very rare. I can't even find a PCI Banshee anywhere..

Yes, normal asking price for a A3000 and A4000. But these are the most expensive ones and not the measure of all things.

Kinda like taking a voodoo 5 6000 price and applying it to all 3dfx cards.

I have to laugh at the absurd triple digit listings for Voodoo 3s...

most of them don't sell for trips. a few do sell for trips on ebay from time to time. to me its a 50$ card and I do see them selling for those prices.

Did you get or already have the cards and cables that go with the Audigy 2 and X-fi external modules?

Packages were complete (no boxes though) - cards (except Extigy, of course), external modules, all cables, software... only missing thing is vertical stand for X-fi 😒

Awesome! Now you just need an Audigy 4 Pro and the external module to complete your collection.

I wouldn't waste a single buck on such a lot, even if I spotted a rare card. Whatever you find in there has probably taken so much ESD damage that it won't work for more than a few hours or - with some luck - a few weeks. So I tend to agree, it's more or less junk.

I am pretty sure after talking to the seller that they are just parting out a bunch of old systems. Supposedly the total number of cards I will be getting is 85.

For the price I paid, just the one Turtle Beach TBS-2000 card would have been worth it.

Can't wait to see what all is in that massive lot of cards.

And this is how I have gotten a good amount of old hardware that I do have.... in scrap lots that nobody else touches.

So far the stuff that I have gotten from scrap lots that works, which is almost all that I have tested, works fine and hasn't given me any problems.
