    Can't choose! I think the GF4 MX4000 with 32bit memory (but only because they're still on sale). Also the 5500 for being a 5200 in a different box... Any of the intel cards are terrible too!

    I'll have to say either the 5200 or the Geforce MX 4000 with 32bit memory.

    GeForce4 MX series were the worst from NVIDIA.
    RageII series were worst from ATI.
    And the worst onboard graphics medal goes to S3 KLE/PLE.

    GeForce2 MX and TNT2 were great cards for their time. GeForce2 MX was good enough for most of the modern games (at the time) to be run at full quality without FSAA. And we all know that TNT2 was the actual design that made NVIDIA such a great company.

    So, I don't see why would anyone bash an old Full sized ISA IBM EGA now... :p ;)

    Geforce 4MX, MX4000, FX5200 all crap and all still on sale somewhere in the world. WHY! (Because there are people who don't know any better I suppose and are fooled by flashy packaging. A triumph of marketing over technology?)

    Definitely.
    That's also the reason why Microsoft is the most successful software company.

    The main reason for any Parhelia sales was probably the built in triple-head option plus the fact that it enabled Matrox professional video users (Digisuite) to have at least somewhat 3D capable card in their editing/post suites since they were forced to use old DX6 G400/G450/G550 cards before

    You are wrong, the worst card ever, is the NVIDIA FX5600 XT !!! that sucks really really bad ! it's worse than a FX5200!

    About FX5200 128bit: I had one, and I could play BFVitenam , UT2004 and Needforspeed Underground at max settings perfectly.

    I repeat the FX5600XT is the worst card, is the slowest in the FX family.

    Well, haven't you heard? FX series have to use Direct 8 to run Hl2 better. But still suck! I had to lower the details etc to the lowest to play it smoothly. I tried the highest and it was fine but FPS dropped badly sometimes.

    I know I know that FX series are like sh!t... That is because I had an FX 5700LE myself :D. But I thougt that the 5900 is the best of the FX series...
