i have a p2 300 with 64mb ram...
at the moment i have a voodoo1 3dfx card, which was pretty cheap i guess, and ive had it for over a year.
however, now that voodoo2 has come, i am thinking of replacing my voodoo1 with voodoo2 (voodoovoodoovoodoo).
The Pure3d II looks like the best one, am i right?
so i am thinking of shelling out some money on that...
3dfx (as in voodoo1) compatible games, have been coming steadily (i mean there wasnt one big outburst of them and then nothing), and the only reason im thinking of upgrading is the fact that i may be aquiring a bundle of money soon, and id like to do something worthwhile with it.
is it likely that the voodoo2 is going to hold out for a long time? i mean long enough to buy 2 card and take advant of the fact that this is possible.
dont lay all the technical stuff on me im just looking for a summary of whats happenin.
will normal 3dfx games (voodoo1) work on the new card?
how do you recognise which games use voodoo1 and which use voodoo2? at the moment they just have the 3dfx logo on them, is there going to be a different logo for voodoo2 games?
will the new card speed up quake2, and other voodoo1 compatible games?
would it be worth buying 2 Pure3d II cards at the same time?
thanks a ton for your help.
