Diamond Multimedia made more than just Voodoo cards, they made nVidia and S3 based cards as well. One of my first graphics cards was a 12mb Diamond Multimedia Monster 3D II (Voodoo2 card), and it was excellent. In fact it's still in my mom's computer (she's obviously not a heavy gamer, but it still has enough power for the basic 3D games).
For 3dfx cored cards check the voodoofiles link above, for S3 cored cards you can try here, and for nVidia cored cards you should be able to just use the latest Detonator reference drivers (here).

that same company as Diamond Viper V770? I got that on my old computer from Dell. Used Nvidia drivers, but Dell never had any driver support on their site.
ironically enough it is a viper v770 heh. scrounged around last night and found what I think was appropriate. said for win95 but had a doc thhat said it would work on up to win millenium.
