The short answer is - "No".

The last officially supported OS is Windows 2000 (for Voodoo2).
The last unoficially supported is Xp.
There is no Vista/Win7 or 64-bit driver for ANY of the 3dfx cards.
You can use XPDM or WDM drivers in the Win7, but the result may vary.
So - try, then tell the result to us.
Asus P4P800 SE/Pentium4 3.2E/2 Gb DDR400 (3-3-3-8),
Radeon HD3850 Agp (Sapphire), Catalyst 14.4 (XpProSp3).
2 Voodoo2 12 MB (SLI), Win2k drivers 1.02.00 (XpProSp3).

"The well-known SFFT drivers for 3dfx video cards have opened to the Voodoo cards the doors of Windows 7. This following movie shows off a Voodoo5 5500 and PCI Express to PCI Bus adapter based configuration running on Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit OS by the latest SFFT driver release, the SFFT 1.6."

@ Fab

Maybe these drivers can help under 32bit (Windows 7 don't know.. XP should work) :mrgreen:
