I've participated in these lists many times so I'll just list the most memorable ones:

Geforce 2 GTS 64mb
Geforce 4ti 4200 128mb
AMD 6950 2gb (current)

Those three cards stayed in my rig the longest. (2+ years)

Good idea.

The ones that I remember as most bad ass were:

Voodoo 3 3000
TNT2 Ultra ES
GeForce Ti4400
Radeon 6950
780ti

I've participated in these lists many times so I'll just list the most memorable ones...

Good point, but it's still a mental exercise I don't mind going through. Occasionally a similar thread pops up on a synthesizer site that I visit, and it's kinda fun going back thinking about all of the different ones I either owned, built, or designed, what music I made with them, etc. etc. Same thing with these threads. I think about the games I played on the cards, which school I was in, which job I had, which LAN party I brought it to to show it off, etc. etc.

My friend and I both bought Hercules GeForce 2 GTSes at the same time. It was right before Christmas. I bought us two copies of Quake III Arena, and he bought us two copies of Unreal Tournament. An absolute blast ensued. We both brought our PCs to work one day (which was a software testing lab that had tons of capable machines.) We proceeded to start up an after-work Quake III and UT session with some of the other guys that worked there, and had a bit of a crowd around our dueling game machines. :D It was fun. That sort of thing is what I think about with each card I put on that list. :cool:

Another one was that I had just picked up ET: Quake Wars when I set up a secondary machine with the 9600 GTs in SLI. I was surprised how fast that pair was with everything cranked up. It was easily on par with whatever better card my main machine had at the time. (Might have been the GTX 260 448 or something like that.) Anyway...

You know, for the Mystique being a mistake, it sure seems to have made it into a lot of systems. :D

Big ol picture incoming!
Sadly it is not my complete history as it is missing my Mach 64, VooDoo3, GeForce 2 GTS, X800 XT and a few others.

I probably should not have gotten a 970 but... I got impatient waiting for GIGABYTE to send me a 290 that had a fan that didn't rattle. Oh well.

:rolleyes:

7600GT (hardware vmodded)

1. TNT 16MB (paid extra to get it added to a P2 450 Dell)
1a. Voodoo 2 8MB (which I ran in tandem along with the TNT for 3DFX options in specific games)
2. GeForce 256 DDR (bought this instead of a Dreamcast, which people thought I was crazy to do since the Dreamcast was gonna LAST FOREVER)
3. GeForce 2 32MB (got this for free from Guillemot when the 256 fried itself in-warranty)
4. Radeon 8500 (got this after the GF2 fried itself *out* of warranty)
5. Ti4400 (which I somehow managed to kill trying to add RAMsinks to with Arctic Silver Epoxy)
6. ATI 9550XT
7. GeForce 6800 GT (never used, sold to a friend...which I felt bad about since it was a BFGTech card)
8. GeForce Go 6800 Ultra (got tired of building boxes and went on a DTR kick)
9. GeForce Go 7800 GTX (second DTR - died due to the faulty dye process)
10. GeForce 7950GT (stopgap card for a secondary box)
11. GeForce Go 9800 GTS (last DTR - this one actually wore rather well and is still kicking in a serviceable Gateway 7811FX)
12. GeForce 560 Ti 448 (eventually SLIed, might still use in a secondary box either alone or SLIed)
13. MSI 970 GTX (RMAed, then *paid off* by MSI because of no stock to replace it)
14. Gigabyte 970 GTX Rev 1.1 (~fingers crossed~)

God, I don't think I can, I'm too old. Whatever vid card came with a PC, ADAM, or TI-994A ;)

Then there was an EGA card
Then a VGA card
Then a super VGA card
There was another computer in there with something...
3dfx Voodoo5
Then an ATI something
Radeon 9800pro?
two or three more cards in there somewhere - like 2 ATI and one Nvidia flavor
Currently running a pair of 670s SLI
Going to upgrade to a 980 when they become a little more available. MSI gaming probably


Ha whippersnapper!

My first was an RF modulator on the Apple II+ UHF channel 33 baby!

(and get off my lawn)

How about the Bally Astrocade with Basic cartridge? We had one of those in my house. Of course I was only about 3 at the time. :D

Ouch! Just read the wiki on that. Your folks were painfully bleeding edge. Bet you had the Betamax with the multi tape loader? (wonder where that boat anchor is...)

:D They definitely were. They also had one of the first home Pong units before that. None of that was as memorable as my first C64 though in 1983. I was 5-6 years old. Got my first dose of Jumpman, and was absolutely hooked.

We didn't have Betamax, but were pretty early on the VHS thing.
