I could name some of the major ones but I'd only remember maybe half of them. I've gamed on monocrome, CGA, EGA... I've owned countless video cards starting with a add-in VGA adapter in my 8088 all the way to today. Matrox, Trident, Diamond, 3DFX, ATI, Nvidia... personal cards must be at least a couple dozen. But counting work building systems... I've used nearly every card ever made at least once (except for a few of the insanely pointless dual-gpu cards.)

This is the best i can remember, my list might not be as big as some others here. I loved all my video cards, great times and moments. Sometimes i wish i had a better model etc, got what i could at the time or thought was best bang for the buck. heheh FPS! That Geforce 2 MX was a bad pick tho, had SD Ram instead of DDR but it was cheap at Best Buy, and my TNT died lol.

There's quite a bit of time in between upgrades. Gaming and building rigs on a budget is tough but satisfying!
