I currently have a Geforce Fx 5200 in my cpu. I was wondering if switching out that for a Voodoo3 3dfx, would be a wise decision?

i doubt it. Plus voodoo3 only has 16 bit rendering i believe. Maybe if you have some really old games that utilize the Glide API, it may be of some use.

In "your cpu" dude lol hahahaha /facedesk.

That 3DFX is a very old card and isn't meant to be used for general use as it is vintage and doesn't have modern driver support except for a small community of coders who keep such cards alive for their features ect that allow for native compatibility for games that usually do not work on more modern machines.
