I am looking for a driver for a 3D FX card. Im not sure what tpe of card it is but the chipset reads as follows:

3DFX Interactive. One of the other chips say: ICS GENDAC ICS5342-3.

If someone can lead me to the website I can download from or email it to me it would be appreciated.

If it is a Diamond you can get the drivers from www.diamondmm.com

If it is a Creative you can get the drivers from www.creative.com

If it is something else then you need to go to www.3dfx.com and look.

The video card does not say which manufacturer it is. It only says 3dfx Interactive on the chipset.. no other brand name.

I have checked the web side for 3dfx, nothing listed. Is there any other way I can find out more?

All of the drivers on that web site are for 3DFX. Is there only one chip that has 3dfx on it?  if so it is either a voodoo 1 or a voodoo rush. If the card has two video ports on it (one male and one female) it is a voodoo 1

If it has 2 video ports it could be a voodoo2.

How many chips does it have?
Do any have fans?

3 chips say it is a 3dfx interactive. The board also says this. The video card has 2 ports with a cable connecting the video card to the 3dfx card, and the monitor plugs into the 3dfx card.

hope this helps.

Ps. no fans on any of the chipsets. It will be an older video card but it says nothing about a voodoo chipset anywhere?

If 2 of the three 3DFX chipsets are same, it's a VooDoo2 card!

In fact, VooDoo2 is only 3D accelerator card, not graphics accelerator card.

You should goto "www.3dfx.com" first.

Thanks. After all the comments everyone put in I was unsure which driver to install. Voodoo 2 was the first and right one.
