Hmmm seems like I went through way too many cards but not all of them were my main cards; I think I built PCs more for fun than actually using them so I was constantly flipping them after building etc. :D I don't have amazing memory but all my cards are in my email or heatware history haha

Funnily the only old card I still kept was the X1800XT that I put in my cousin/uncle's system I put together for them years ago. They ended up giving it to me when they upgraded instead of throwing it in the trash. Sadly my uncle passed away this year, he used to baby-sit me when I was a toddler. RIP

Seems like an appropriate first post:

SiS 6326
GeForce FX 5200
Radeon X300
Radeon Mobility X1800
Radeon HD 6950 2GB (first real build)
R9 290
RTX 3080 (as of this morning)

And in various 'extra' PCs:
Radeon 9700
GeForce 9600 GT
Radeon HD6450
GeForce 210

Still have all the old ones in a box somewhere. Wanted to go AMD this time around but I can't support AMD if they can't build any cards, and eight years is a long enough wait.

Only run Voodoo 5 6000's since day one. Still keeps up in the industry standard SLi. Got 4 in my main rig and a dozen more laying around at home and with friends/relatives.
Been eying a pair of RTX3090 for SLi in my MAME rig though.

I *think* this is the correct order:

GeForce 5200 FX
GeForce 8800 GTS
Radeon HD 4870
GeForce GTX 470
Radeon HD 7950
GeForce GTX 970
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti


Still impressed with how great the 8800 GTS was, and for how long I used it. Also I'm pretty sure my old GTX 470 helped to heat my cold college dorm room.

Looking to move to either a RTX 3080 or 6800 XT whenever the stock situation chills out. >.>

Geez kudos to y'all remembering all your cards. I can barely remember what I had 10 yrs ago.

Voodoo 2
Voodoo 3
GeForce 2 GTS
All In Wonder 9800 Pro
Radeon X800 XL
GeForce 7800 GT
GeForce 8800 GTS
GTX 260/Radeon HD 4870
GTX 480
GTX 1060 6GB
GTX 1080

The jump from GTX 480 to 1060 was mind blowing for me.

ISA:
- Trident (S)VGA 512KB ISA
PCI:
- S3 Virge DX
- Voodoo 2 12MB
AGP:
- GeForce 256 32MB
- Voodoo3 16MB - this downgrade was intentional because at the time 3dfx was better for games!
- Voodoo Banshe 16MB - let's say I needed money XD
- GeForce 2 Ti 32MB
- GeForce 3 Ti200 64MB
- GeForce 4 Ti4200 64MB
- Radeon 9550@9600XT - it had 9600xt board and chip revision. Pretty much BIOS flash away from being 9600xt
- Radeon 9500@almost 9700pro - almost because it needed one option enabled otherwise it has artifacts and this option slightly reduced performance. Could see through walls in Quake3 and other on-line games - best GPU EVAR 🤣
PCI-E
:
- GeForce 7300GT 128MB - fast model, almost 7600 performance
- Radeon HD3850 512MB - for a short while like 2-3 m-c
- GeForce 8800 GS 384MB
- GeForce 8800GT 512MB - failed and after few times could not be revived anymore
- GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB
- GeForce GT260 216sp 896MB
- GeForce GTX480 1GB
- GeForce 660 2GB - for few months only
- Radeon HD7950 3GB - aftewr a year power connector burned but I used it like that for two more years. Finally failed but it seems not related to this connector. Revival unsuccessful.
- GeForce GTX 780 3GB
- GeForce GTX 980Ti 6GB - top end Asus model (relevant because these cards were significally faster than normal ones)
- GeForce RTX 2070 8GB - current

Other than these I had owned other cards, some used for a while, some not really.
From these worth mentioning would be:
- 2xVoodoo2 12MB in SLI - ran everything at 1024x768 like butter. Everything ran and unlike Nvidia SLI this implementation worked in all games and had zero additional input lag or micro-stuttering
- GeForce 7900GT 256MB - bought it for 3d glasses. Fun for few games I played on it.

Other than that I tested slew of cards like:
- GeForce 8800GTX 768 back when it was new card - it was shocking how faster this card was. 1080p with max settings was piece of cake for it.
- Radeon HD4850 512MB - pretty decent card. Alsmot made me get HD4870 instead of GTX 260
- GeForce 750Ti - actually got one after I had 660. Version with power connector. Sold it rather quickly because these cards sold like hot cakes. Everyone without a decent PSU wanted them 🙃

I currently also own Voodoo 5 5500 32MB PCI but it has artifacts and need some work done on it.
