I never had a 3dfx card in their heyday. I was aware of them, and I can remember wanting a Voodoo 2 at the time.
But they weren't cheap, I was a kid and my parents weren't shelling out the dough as I already had a "gaming PC"
(It was a k6-2 with a SiS 6236..)
But I did purchase some later on when I was getting back into the retro hardware.
I'm cheap, I found some listings on ebay where the seller only knew enough to put photos with bad descriptions.
In short I picked up a V3 3000 AGP for about $20 and a Voodoo 3 2000 PCI for about $25.
This was around late 2016 to early 2017.
I haven't seen anything of the like on ebay since then, but I suppose it is possible deals still crop up from time to time.
Long story short, I like these cards but they simply aren't worth what they regularly sell for, at least not to me.
2017 was far to late for deals on 3dfx.
This is from 9/13/2007

This was a Voodoo 3500 with breakout cable and the double jewel case with the original disks and manual. Shipping was much cheaper back then as well. People back then were giving away 3dfx hardware just to get it out of the house and also including all the misc. stuff you have to buy separately today. It was also the golden age for snagging boxed items cheap.
