    some trident card was the first (jag reminded me of that), then i got some s3 2mb card, then an ati express, then a diamond stealth card, moved up to a better s3 card with 4mg and added a voodoo rush to it, then a TNT card, TNT2, Geforce 2 gts, Geforce 4 ti4200 and now a geforce 6800 :)

    My age might start to show here, some of you younger guys and girls may not even recognise it.
    Going back to July 1992 my first PC an AMD 386DX40 had a 1MB Trident VGA card, can't remember much else about the card though (best forgotten anyway!) :)

    I can do better than that Jagman! ;)

    My 1st ever x86 video card was an ISA bus EGA graphics adapter in a 12Mhz 80286 'AT' clone with 640Kb RAM and a 20Mb hard disk. Funnily enough this was actually a decent PC back in 1988 !!!

    My 1st proper 2D graphics accelerator card was an Diamond Stealth Video (VLB) card based on an S3 chip. VLB stands for VESA Local Bus and was the hot ticket in the good old 80486 days of the mid 1990's before the PCI bus was invented.

    My 1st 3D card was a PCI bus 4Mb S3 ViRGE DX in a Cyrix 6x86 PR166+ (133MHz) in 1997. Slow as a wet week but it actually did bilinear filtering and Tomb Raider looked great.

    My 1st decent 3D card was a PCI bus 4Mb 3DFx Voodoo 3D add in card back in late 1997.

    My most memorable graphics cards of all time were my two Voodoo 2 cards each with 12Mb of RAM in SLI mode. Paired with a Pentium II 400MHz CPU it was a very quick gaming PC in 1998.

    The most dissapointing 3D card I have ever purchased was a GeForce FX 5700 - it was hardly better than my older GeForce 4 Ti 4200.

    My favourite graphics card of all time would be my old Creative TNT2 Ultra. It was very fast, reliable and lasted a long time. I never had any problems with it, which is more than I can say for alot of other cards I've owned over the years.

    My current card is a 128Mb ASUS V9999 GeForce 6800 with all 16 pipes and 6 vertex processors unlocked. This card is begging for more CPU but everything plays fine so I'll wait until a game comes out that kills my PC before I upgrade (yet) again.

    Regards,

    Greggy
