    • Can't remember because I was 9 at the time playing Duke Nukem 3D on a Pentium 133 Mhz
    • NVIDIA TNT 2 Ultra
    • NVIDIA Geforce 3 Ti 500
    • NVIDIA Geforce 6800 GT
    • NVIDIA Geforce 7800 GTX
    • NVIDIA Geforce 8800 GTX
    • NVIDIA Geforce 470 GTX
    • Next buy will probably be a Geforce 770 or 780 GTX, the 680 is nice but not enough of an upgrade to warrent the €450

    GTX 780Ti Classified :D
    march, 1990 - CGA graphics card onboard 64kB (first computer Sinclair PC200 without monitor but text blurried lol because the fault was TV)
    july, 1993 - Trident (8900C?) (1MB, SVGA, ISA) :D but I can't remember what's right model.
    may, 1996 - Trident (9400CXi?) 2MB with up to 24-bit color (=16M colors) :D but fuzzy problem on both 16-bit and 24-bit while any object moving only
    july, 1999 - Intel I740 8MB
    christmas 2001 - GeForce 2 MX 400 64MB :)
    christmas 2003 - GeForce FX 5200 128MB
    december, 2004 - GeForce 6800 Ultra 256MB AGP :D due to FX 5200 was slow
    november, 2006 - GeForce 7300LE PCI-e 512MB because 6800U was died :( but 7300LE is much slower than 6800U :thumbdown
    july, 2007 - GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB :) due to 7300LE very slow
    january, 2009 - GeForce 9800 GT 1GB due to 8800GTS died
    november 18, 2010 - current GeForce GTX 480 with 10-year warranty registered on-line only :D because 9800GT was only short (2-year) warranty

    next videocard - GTX 480 will be died (RMA) or Maxwell or upgrade only 2015 (after Maxwell?) due to crisis. ;)

    CGA graphics card - it's very probably. CGA has graphics 320x200 at 4 colors and text 40x25 at 16 colors and graphics 160x100(?) at 16 colors. And graphics up to 640x200 at 2 colors. :)

    GTX 560 Ti or 570 is good because it's impressive performance at heavy tessellation and has PhysX support. :)

    Well.
    But do you have read my post #10???
    Your AMD-ATi is crap and bad because it isn't efficient at heavy tessellation and hasn't PhysX support. haha! :p
