3dfx has drivers on their page, including a rom image so you can flash a pc
card with OF firmware. They just released an OpenGL driver as well, they
are pretty good for calling it "unsupported"...
Anyway, that should contain what you want, so you can just buy a pc pci V3
card for <$100 and flash it. (That's what all the Mac folks that use V3
cards have done.)

I would also LOVE to have a V3 driver!

Hope that helps,
