I don't mean to dissapoint you, but these emulaters don't, and won't ever exist. Why? The amout of extra processing time needed to produce such stunning graphics would need a computer running with about 3 processors. Therefore, it's ceaper to buy a card.
Also, there are the physical enhancements that these cards offer to take into consideration, as there is no way to emulate these... otherwise, a graphics card would be, more or less, obsolete.

No probs...
To answer your question, though, no. You cannot emulate bits of hardware in the same way that you can an Atari ST. In other words, you cannot emulate a machine that is better that yours...

Hey I just wanted to let you know that they don't exist although I might be able to get a copy of 3dfx emulator from a warez site -search warez for one. I just wanted to say that a voodoo 2 is not a good buy if you have a pentium- it only works well with a oentium 2.

I beleive you can emulator certain Hardware if you have hardware
which is already capable of doing so.
ie. lets say you own a ATI Expert 2d/3d 8 megs board,
but you would like to run 3dfx programs.
your board is capable of doing so, but LAZY programers
have made the program 3dfx only. A emulator would work in this
case. Semi-Proof: ATI has made a opengl for quake, when used
quake looks just has good and has fast as with a3dfx card!
