Parents dropped £150 notes on a Voodoo card of some kind (too young to remember the model) so I could play Incoming. The game itself was bundled with the PC, but it was incapable of playing it. We had a Tiny PC with a massive 21" CRT, Zip drive, CD Rom and it came bundled with Encarta and Office 98 When I had my own PC (early-mid 2000's) I spent quite a bit of pocket money on an ATI 9250 so I could play Ragnarok Online with my friends at school. We where on dial up at the time so I had to wait until after everyone had used the phone to log in and play! Bought a whole new 939 based system and a ATI x1900 so I could play WOW (to poor for an AM2 system at the time) Later upgraded to a Zotac AMP 8800 and an AM3 system so I could play the later expansions. I've bought allot of cards and entire systems to satisfy the need to play a single game! But then again my youth was heavily influenced by games and all of my friends kept me driven to upgrade. Recently dumped £100 on these very forums to buy myself an XFX R9 270 to replace my ageing 6850 and play the latest update of WOT on decent settings!
