Right now i have voodoo 3 overclocked to 197mhz and if i get a voodoo 5500 how much can i overclcock this card with stock cooling. Also how much better will it be if i add artic silver 2 and some better cooling.
I can get one for 90 bucks with shipping and it sounds like a good deal since the best price on pricewatch is 110

well i can only compare it to a voodoo 4 clocked to 183\190 and when i got the voodoo 5 without it being o\ced the card was faster but i really noticed a big improvement in quality of colours and picture.if you can get that cheap and are on a budget its a great card and you would be very happy with it.

MUCH better. I upgraded from the 3000 to the 5500 and saw a world of difference. Since then I've upgraded to the G2 GTS, but for the money it wasn't worth it. Now that the GTS is sub $100 prices, I'd get that instead of the 5500.
