    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..

    3dfx voodoo
    Matrox g400 (still going strong on a vinyl cutter to this day!, dual display cheesecake)
    Ati 9800
    Ati 1900
    Ati 5700

    Edit, I should add the ATI All in wonder, which was a great card for capturing video!

    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!)

    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...

    3Dfx Voodoo
    PowerVR 3Dx
    nVidia Riva128
    nVidia Riva TNT
    PowerVR Neon250
    nVidia geforce2 MX
    nVidioa geforce2 GTS
    nVidia geforce3
    nVidia 4200
    <I was apparently skint in this gap, as I don't recall any upgrades between the 4200 and 5900>
    nVidia FX5900
    ATI 9800 Pro
    nVidia FX5950
    ATI 9800XT
    nVidia 6800 (GT? Can't recall which one specifically)
    nVidia 7800GT
    nVidia 8800GTX

    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!

    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)
    ATi X700
    Sapphire X1600pro
    Sapphire HD2900XT 512MB(twice!)
    Power Color PCS+ HD4850 512MB - great card and still going in my spare rig.

    Crappy VIA Unichrome Pro on my old laptop

    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.

    Point of View Nvidia Geforce 8500 GT

    XFX Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 Black Edition

    I then upgraded my computer to it's sandy bridge setup and got a :

    MSI Twin Frozr 2 NVidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti

    I then decided to upgrade that again, and now have SLi Twin Frozr 560s :clap:
