(To the 3dfx collector that wrote asking about buying the PCI Mac Voodoo5 5500 card used for the review here in 2000. I can't sell the card as it's installed in a Daystar Genesis that's been boxed up in storage for many years. Also have a mezzanine slot Voodoo2 card in an early iMac (CRT) with G4 CPU Upgrade in storage. Not able to reply to your mail so hopefully you see this posting.)
