    Hi,

    What cards have you bought over the years? Try just to include just cards bought as a seperate upgrade. So the one that came in your £3k Alienware PC doesn't count :D

    The very first graphics card i ever bought was a Matrox Millenium II 4mb. It was to replace some dodgy cirrus logic card that was in there when i bought it. it was £135!!!
    It wasn't long before i realised that it was pretty rubbish for gaming so plonked for a Maxi Gamer 3DFX Voodoo 4mb! Wow this card was amazing in it's day. i could play all of my old games looking amazing with all theses 3dfx 'patches' :D
    Souped up Tomb Raider, POD, and GLQuake were my personal favs!

    Anyway heres the full list

    Matrox Millenium II 4mb
    Maxi Gamer 3DFX Voodoo 4mb
    Diamond Monster 3DFX Voodoo 2 16mb
    Sapphire Radeon 7000 64mb
    Ati branded Radeon 9600 256mb
    Msi Geforce FX5900 XT 128mb
    XpertVision GeForce 6600GT 128mb
    XFX GeForce 6800GT 256mb

    This could be tricky, as I've had a lot of computers...

    *ATI Mach 64 with a gigantic 4MB VRAM for a Pentium 90 system
    *Diamond Monster 1
    *Diamond Monster 2 (Voodoo cards were the dog's bollocks)
    *ATI Rage Fury
    *ATI Rage Fury Maxx
    *Diamond Banshee (Freebie, this went into my older brother's rig)
    *Leadtek Geforce 2 MX (All of the above were on the family computer, this one I won in a contest and replaced the Rage Fury that was in my first computer, I still remember how excited I was to get such a crappy Geforce card)
    *Asus Geforce 2 (Which I got for about $11 thanks to one really generous clan member)
    *Sapphire Radeon 9500 (Got it because I heard you could turn it into a 9700...let's just say my card was a 9500 and not a 9700 for a good reason)
    *Sapphire Radeon X800 (I think this card is getting a little sad, because I've been throwing games like Warcraft 3 and Neverwinter Nights at it lately; maybe a run in Quake 4 will make it happy again).
