    Voodoo 3 2000, cost me £30 and was part of my first ever build, my Dad still uses it.

    TNT2 Ultra, Huge upgrade that let me play GTA 3 smoothly, now sadly dead :waah:

    GeForce 4 Ti 4200, More FPS in Gothic, now resides in my server with a really annoying fan noise.

    Geforce 6600GT, my current card, frankly it does everything I need it to.

    I bought a V3 2000 in 1998 and it cost me £99.95. Married up with a SiS chipset and K6-2/350, it played Midtown Madness at 1280x1024 pretty smoothly. I think that was my first ever upgrade, that gfx card. I'm pretty sure that gfx card played Half Life without grumbling about it.

    Great card eh? :D

    I had it coupled with a PII 200 clocked to 300, the whole rig was ready to burst into flames but it ran smooth. It would play half life nicely though, considering I still play CS 1.5 it'd probably still do for me :thumb:

    Mind you, back then my monitor only went to 1024*768 :hehe:
