For me it has to be the Geforce FX 5200, unfortunately. I had been using integrated graphics at the time, so it was a massive improvement for me. Finally, I could play RA2/Tib Sun/Generals on some kind of quality, however, it was still a piece of crap. I specifically remember thinking it should be better than it was. No worries, the next GPU I ended up with was a 9800 Pro. Now that was a nice piece of hardware at the time. Thinking back to old computer hardware like this is a little more unique and fun than other products. A car 5 years ago is still basically gonna more or less similar to a car today. Maybe a few more bells and whistles and an updated exterior design, but not the huge generational leap provided by the fast moving computer technology realm. So what was the first GPU you remember having and getting all giddy over? What were you excited to break it in with?
