    - Voodoo 2 12mb Pci
    - Diamond Viper TNT2 1st AGP card
    - ATI 16mb (cant remeber name)
    - Hercules 3D Prophet 4500 64mb Kyro 2 (This was my fav card it blew me away)
    - Geforce 2 MX 400

    Erm, these are so "little" steps

    Voodoo2
    Gf Ti 4200 64mb
    MR 9600 pro (on laptop)

    Ok, so there it was, my brother has had many others, but for my cards, they are those. Actually either of them is/was fully mine, but I will buy 6800 gt/ge soon... after the prices are more reasonable. And I started to really use computer after we got that TI 4200 (with a brand new machine, my brother took his away when he moved to study in university, and we needed a new one).

    I still remember Carmageddon 2 on Voodoo2, mm, marvellous.

    1) Onboard something
    2) Monster 3d 4mg
    3)Monster 3d 8mg
    4)Voodoo 16 3000?
    5)Voodoo 32 3500?
    6)Voodoo 64 5500? forget the exact series numbers.
    61/2) Possibly another voodoo in the mix some where.
    7)Mx 256 (name, not onboard ram)
    8)Mx 440 DDR
    9)VErto GEForce Ti-4600
    10)BNG FX 5900XT OC
    Building in April or June so that will be number 11 possibly 12.

    I forget some of the actual brand names.

    The Ti-4600 croaked, kept causing every computer I put it in to reboot with no warning.

    My fan just died in my FX5900 XT OC, you should see the jury rigged fan I have in there now, while I'm waiting on my NV silencer 3.

    None of the other cards failed me, infact I gave most of them away and some are still running in other machines.

    Are they just not putting the quality control into Cards nowadays that they used to?
