Yes there were.
As John stated, there were 8mb TNT2 Vanta cards
WOW i never imagined people still has 8 -64 mb cards they still use
S3 Virge 3 - I think thats the first '3d' card i owned.
Then a SIS 6326 - rubbish
and then a Matrox Millenium G200 8MB - still in use
Then a few Voodoos
Geforce Ti4200 (Still in use)
but i owned plently of 2d cards before that - anyone remember #9 cards (Number9) or VESA slots (like ISA, but longer)
im new so i have no clue on how to attach a photo but my fav card was a BFG 7600GS OC 512mb AGP. man i miss that thing, i enjoyed it more than my 8800gt to be honest lol
Certainly remember VESA slots. Had a 386SX 16 with one, and a 486 board with one too. I actually have a 486 board (by Shuttle) which has 2 or 3 ISA slots, no VESA
The first card I remember having was the Diamond Monster 3D II... I think that's what it was... I am looking at this review at Guru and the box is the same.. Slick car there... I don't remember there being a game bundle though?
Ahhhh, all these old cards bring back the HL and Duke Nukem Days
Mega-huge sound card, like 9800GTX, the first one from Creative ?
Yup a quick google tells me it's the Sound Blaster Pro 2
Some nice stuff in this thread, I miss the 3DFX Voodoo Banshee I used to have, that card was great, playing Tomb Raider Chronicles at 640x480/800x600 so smooth, great times
I used to love this card :roll:
XFX Geforce 6800GT 256MB 'Doom 3 Edition'
Sorry about the dual DVI :bash:

Guillemot TNT2 16MB 166Mhz edition

Creative TNT2 32MB
Best art box ever...
SiS Xabre 200 64MB

around this time I collected a piece of gaming history.... which is
Obsidian X-24, single PCI SLI

eVGA 6800GT 256MB, and a copper heatsink I won

then I got the 7800GT and finally the 8800GTX....
Used to have one of those, except I must've had a reference model, since it had no cooling and was full-size.
