Is there any difference between 3Dfx and Direct 3D.

I have seen many games that have both the options to start the game with.

The 3dFX is always somekind of GLIDE technology.
Is it a very high quality mode?

wow !

now, 3dfx was a videocard manufacturer, like nvidia today. They introduced the "Glide" stardard as renderer. If you have a 3dfx card, the best quality is achieved in "glide", then in direct3d, and last in opengl, in this order.
