Nice found for sure.. Let me guess u did pay very good price of like 100-130$ since was listed as Voodoo III 2K.. Voodoo IV 4.5K usually sells for like 300-400$ i think..
Yes; something like that, heh.
That seller was prob a female selling her husband`s card and stuff rofl (happened to me couple of times one time i got MSI socket 462 Delta 2 Platinum for dirt cheap with original box, the husband was on work trip, and his wife decided to sell his "garbage" as she said... Other time similar crap the husband was away for some days cuz of work, and his GF did sell his collection, got cheap Voodoo 1 and Voodoo 2 cards from it and 1 slot 1 mobo ABIT BH6.. Yeah jesus these wifes and GFs they are are UNhealthy for collectors for sure..), or was someone that did not have much clue about stuff.. Two-3 times (since i have AD on local sites, that i am looking for retro parts all the good stuff u know) ppl message me, most of the time garbage and BS or low end stuff such as Riva TNT M64, ATi garbage Rage, Radeon 9200, MX440, GF FX5200 ect.. , but some times there are good stuff and great deals.. For example one time some guy sends me a picture of a part with price tag 5 euros, i click on the picture it was Voodoo III 2K AGP, i said ofc accept the deal, but asked him if he have more stuff (the usual procedure ofc) , he said maybe to give him 2-3 days to look in the garage, basement.. After 2 days he did send me pictures of another 3Dfx, but Banshee, some others not interesting stuff, but at the time he was aware for how much these cards ell in ebay, and wanted to cancel even the Voodoo 3, i got mad, but said to him that he did give me price offer i accepted, but not for the Banshee, so he send me only the Voodoo 3 for the 5 euros, and kept the Banshee for himself... Or other guy that saw me selling Voodoo 3 3000 for 80 euro some time ago (back when i had prices on my ADs) and did message me with his card and picture, with price tag of only 40 euro, i said that my primary idea was trade for other exotic parts, and that no one did buy it for 80 euro, + his card may not work, so i said i cant pay that much for potential scrap. Then he did offer me 10 euros, i said ok. ofc i know the failure rate of old parts is normally in my favor, most of them just work (aside from shitty ASUS), so odds are i tell the seller that the part may be dead, and they lower price alot..
