Default Voodoo 2 graphics card question

I have a couple PCI Voodoo 2 graphics cards both originally used in PC's. Can these be used in a Mac? They're manufactured by Orchid and Creative though both use the 3dfx chipset. I've tried looking on the 3dfx site but the link to their driver database is broken.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Mike

Not really on topic, but yes you can. 3DFX has unsupported drivers, but they work fine.

Thanks for the info - I want to try the Digi001/Protools with a second monitor so it's spot on topic, really.

Any idea where I can find these drivers, please?

Thanks,

Mike

Looks like 3dfx has yanked the drivers from their site - you probably would just have to do some web searching to find an archived copy somewhere.

But the V2 won't let you run a second monitor - it's a pass-thru card that ONLY runs 3d graphics. No 2d output. For a second monitor you could use a V3 or many other cards.
