Doubt my list is even worth posting tbh -_-
ATI 3200 Mobility - Laptop i bought like 5 years ago
XFX 6850 - First built computer from about 3 months ago <3
Wow, lots, Quite a few SIS cards along with tridents, you used to be able to buy the memory in dip form and upgrade it yourself!, some significant ones were..
Matrox g400 (still going strong on a vinyl cutter to this day!, dual display cheesecake)
Edit, I should add the ATI All in wonder, which was a great card for capturing video!
Ati 9500 Pro
Asus 260 SLI (216 Core)
Zotac GTX 570
Zotac GTX 570 (SLIed)
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M
NVIDIA NVS 135M
There mayb some more desktop cards in-between but cant remember em
yes, i can
ATI HD 2600 XT - Prebuilt dell, first PC
XFX HD 4890 - First PC build
Asus HD 4890 - For crossfire
Racks brain for model numbers...
3dfx Voodoo 2 (PCI) - shoved in an old emachines converting family computer in Quake machine!
Nvidia 4200ti (i think that was it's name?) - in first scratch build "for the family"
ATI X800Pro - modded to an XT with some tinkering (1st own PC)
ATI X1900XT - easily overclocked to XTX speeds
Planning new machine likely to contain Geforce GTX570 for playing a great deal of Battlefield 3 on my 42" TV (my wife's gonna love me!)
Voodoo2 was my first and 560ti my last.
Too many in between to remember and list!
Great post! Reminds me of some of the awful cards I bought in between!
Ah the memories... Tha "main" graphics card (e.g. there's been other cards in other systems over this time) has taken a journey like so...
nVidia Riva TNT
nVidia geforce2 MX
nVidioa geforce2 GTS
<I was apparently skint in this gap, as I don't recall any upgrades between the 4200 and 5900>
ATI 9800 Pro
nVidia 6800 (GT? Can't recall which one specifically)
And at around that point I tallied when I had spent on graphics cards, watercooling and general relentless upgrading over the years, flogged the gaming PC and got a PS3. I've been living on onboard graphics since then, with no regrets!
Geforce 2 GTS
Geforce 2 MX400
Geforce 3 Ti500
Geforce 4 Ti4600
Geforce 5 fx5600
Radeon 9800 Pro
Radeon 9800 XT

Geforce 6800 Ultra SLi (PCI-E)
Geforce 7900GTX SLi
Radeon 3870 Crossfire (Worst card ever made)
Radeon 4870 Crossfire
Radeon 5870 Crossfire
Geforce 8800 GTX
Geforce 8800GT SLi

GeForce 6800 Ultra
X1950 Pro 512Mb
GeForce 8800GTS (original one)
GeForce 8800GTS (newer one? I cannot remember)
just purchased a GeForce GTX570 as well
I really should try ATI again...
Riva TNT - which i think had 16Mb of RAM!
Geforce 2 - cant remember specific model.
Radeon 9800 Pro - A beast of a card that lasted for years!
I cant remember what the hell it was but I bought a volt modded card off the forums.
Agree with the statement on the 9800pro was brilliant for it's time and lasted longer than the cards do today as not much could replace it
Sent from my GT-I9000
No I cant remember all of them as there were god knows how many different ISA/VLB & PCI cards!.
First decent card was a Riva TNT2 32MB (far better than the i810 onboard)
Sapphire HD2900XT 512MB(twice!)
Power Color PCS+ HD4850 512MB - great card and still going in my spare rig.
Sapphire HD5830 1GB (was in the machine I bought from my mate)
Crappy VIA Unichrome Pro on my old laptop
ATI 9#00 LE
Geforce 7200 GS
Geforce 7600 GS
GTX 260 (Core 216)
ATI 5470 with switchable power saving GMA 4500
Prices are directly translated from Norske kroner (NKR). Never really bothered to buy anything from abroad because of the high customs duties here.
Sapphire X1950XT (2007) 180£ - Those cards were a bloody good bargain at the time, but it became victim of my first overclocking attempt. Noisiest card I've ever owned.
Club3D X1950XT (2007) 165£ - Replacement card, had a different cooler, which did an amazing job. Accelero x2, I think it was called. Both card and cooler now does its job in my HTPC.
XFX GeForce 8800GT 512MB (2008) 120£ - Bloody cheap, bloody fast.
Asus HD4890 (2009) 120£ - Another bargain. Thought I'd put a custom cooler on it, but it already came with one without me knowing, which is the main reason that this is my current graphics card. Soon to be upgraded though, will be moved to my HTPC.
