Question video card question

Two days ago, I bought a Dell Dimesion 2400 with pentium 4 @ 2.66 GHz and it came with the 'Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics' video card.
On my old computer however, I have a 3dfx 'Voodoo3 2000' video card.(with 16MB SDRAM for AGP 2x or PCI Bus)
Would the Voodoo3 be better than the Intel even though the Voodoo3 is older?

P.S. I know the Dell is not that great of a gaming computer, but I have a few older games that I like to play.
Thanks

if you have an agp slot you could get a cheap agp card which would be a lot better.

Generally I find on board graphics are not as good as AGP Based Graphics because of the simple reaons that onboard is a cheap add on by the maker. AGP Based Cards however have brand names and have reputations and levels - which is not so aparent in On-Board Graphics. If it were; on board would be better.
