    hahaha lol what can I say I have a soft spot for them

    mini review of some of em;

    HD4890 = epic card
    HD4870x2 = great performance but hot and so many of them just stop working after a while
    HD5970 = unbelievable performance when overclocked, but way too long (dimensions of the card), underwhelming upgrade from a 4870x2 at stock

    Voodoo 2 on a shared PC with brother, in the Quake 2 days before Q3 release '99.

    After that, I think me and my brother had GeForce 256 or GeForce 3, or both.

    In my first self-built computer early 2003 I had a Sapphire Radeon 9500 Pro, right around the release of 9600 Pro. Even though 9500 Pro was only a temporary solution by ATI at the time, it performed better at the same price as 9600 Pro. It was the best bang for the buck in the mainstream gaming department. It was awesomely fast, I remember running Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion at 1024x678 at about 20-30fps with it, if I'm not mistaken.

    For my second build in 2006, I chose Sapphire X800XL. Unfortunately, it wasn't the red PCB version, and I couldn't flash it to a X800 Pro. Nevertheless, it performed well until summer 2008, when I sold my PC and bought a laptop, on which I'm writing this. It has Intel X3100 which is horrendously slow.

    My latest build has ATi 4870X2, bought used in December 2009. I will upgrade sometime between now and the release of Newton. The next card will be NVIDIA, it just performs stronger, better drivers, better features. GTX 570 or GTX 6xx.
