Voodoo 3 3000 >>>>>>> ATI 9500
Didn't really notice too much of a difference. Just more options with the new card. The Voodoo 3 is still running strong after 4~ years operation. Hope it never dies!

from PNY Geforce 2 MX 400 to 9800 Pro. That card lasted me for a good 2 or 3 years before I decided to update around the time of Deus Ex 2's release.

Ah the memories...

ATI MACH64 2MB PCI - Matrox Mystique 4MB PCI - VooDoo 1 4MB - Guillemot Banshee 16MB AGP - Voodoo3 2000 AGP - VooDoo5 5500 AGP (killed it with heat!) - Kyro II 64MB AGP - GF4 ti4200 128MB AGP - ATI AIW 9600Pro 128MB AGP

The biggest jump would have to be to a VooDoo1 4MB PCI add-on board. That was the first time I stared slack-jawed at the screen. After that, all were incremental and I got more and more jaded.:D

The single most memorable jump was from Sis 530 Integrated to Monster 3D II, Voodoo 2 12MB.

It wasn't better than sex, but dayum, my games worked...

my friend did the same however i wasnt so lucky i ended up with a gf3 ti500 soon after my gf2. now i'm doing the waiting game on the next gen cards cuz i dont want to be burnt again. this ti500 is not worth it at all especially at retail!

PCI ATI Mach 64 Ultra Pro Turbo (2mb) to a Creative Voodoo 2 12mb PCI. Though technically, it wasnt actually a JUMP per say, as it was an addition TO the ATI :rolleyes:

Biggest jump was from a 1 MB Cirrus Logic card to a Riva TNT. 16 times the memory, and 3d acceleration (which I had never seen before, having missed the whole Voodoo craze).

Well, either that or from a Radeon LE to my current GF3 Ti200.
