Hello, I currently have a Voodoo 3 3000 AGP 4x with TV out, I was trying to sell it, but someone made me an offer for a trade. What they have a is an ATI RAGE PRO 32 MB with TV out. Would it be a good trade in terms of perfmance(3d AND 2D). I know that now I will be able to install windows xp, but other than Driver support, is there a reason I should do this trade?

NO...it would be a decrease in performance and 2D quality will only be a little better....the only reason i would get it is to run XP....but there are Voodoo drivers for XP that seem to work well....

don't do that trade. Instead sell it for what ever you can on ebay and then take the cash and get a regular OEM Radeon (about $42.00 USD) or even a OEM Radeon 7500 (about $86.00).

Prices based off newegg.com

I would say a Nvidia card but for the same price range you could only get a GF2 level card wich has poor Image quality.
