Greetings vogons. New guy from Austria here. I have been dreaming about a 3dfx System since my childhood/early teens but never could get one. I have been considering building a now retro vodoo system for quite some time already but have always postponed it due to high prices of the cards. But now I have the chance to get used 90s pc a HP Pavillion with a P3 800, socket 370 for almost nothing. I would not consider myself as superstitious but I still see it as sign to finally start with building plans. It is now or never the parts are not getting cheaper anytime soon. anyway.I have not seen the pc, this won't chance until the 10th of june when I can open it up by myself if anything is in order.
My now very generic and very noobish question is would be Pentium 3 800 with socket 370 and a voodoo 2 or vodoo 3 a good partners for gaming in general?
I do not mind if is going to be a Vodoo 2 or a 3 I would pick the one that is "cheaper".
Main field of application is going to be late 90s gaming (97 to 99 to be precise).
Thanks for your help in advance.
