    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
    2 TNTs
    Geforce 2/MX
    Geforce 4/MX
    Geforce Ti4200 (Still in use)
    and onwards......

    but i owned plently of 2d cards before that - anyone remember #9 cards (Number9) or VESA slots (like ISA, but longer)

    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?

    Used to have one of those, except I must've had a reference model, since it had no cooling and was full-size.
