Gigabyte GTX580 - 2010 | Nice replacment for CFX 5870s.. current card and I'm loving it. No more ATI!
6600GT- some how i OC'ed this and it ran at the speeds of a 7800GT i swear, maxed out FEAR and didnt go under 30FPs
7800GTS- the AGP one... sucked, didnt see much difference from my 6600GT
7900GTX- sucked also, they were plagued with artifact issues... /tear
8800GTX- great card but only saw its real potential for a couple months when i had my i7, used to use it with a amd 4800+ which also sucked because of the awful bottleneck at any res
ATI 5970- would have been awesome if their drivers were as good as Nvidia's, but when it comes to profiles and forcing AA, its just annoying(and no physx but thats eh)
SLI'ed 480's- awesome, never an issue with these and no need to upgrade for another year or 2

FX5200->850 Pro->7800GTX->8800GT->260( 216SP )->5850->6970
The FX5200 was the biggest POS i ever had lol
Here I go
ATI 9600 SE AGP :biggun:
NV 6600GT AGP
NV 6800GT AGP
NV 7900GT PCIE
NV 7950GT PCIE
NV 8800GTX SLI Still have one card.
NV 8800GT SLI Current in one system
NV 8800GT Work PC
NV 9600GT meltdown :wanker:
ATI 4350 PCIE
NV 480GTX Current
NV 580GTX maybe ???? :nerd:
Compaq 1717rsh ati mobility radeon 8MB died after 8 years
Compal HEL80 Nvidia 7600GT GO 256MB brother has it
MSI GT627-216US Nvidia 9800GS 1GB sold
Clevo w870cu Nvidia 460GTX 1.5GB current right now.
Yep here goes:
2003: FX5200 AGP 128MB -> made it through Doom 3 and Half Life 2
2007: X850XT 256MB AGP
2008: 8800GTX SLI -> tried 3 way sli, bucket of problems
2009: GTX280 1024MB -> didn't want SLI for a while
2010: HD5850 1024MB -> performed better than the G80 SLI in everything
2010: GTX 480 1536MB -> overclocked, it plays most games at the settings I like
in hindsight, the GTX480 was a bit of a rushed choice to get the best performing single GPU solution. The 580 does sickeningly good job of making it look ordinary. :bang:
HA! I had a FX5200 for ages! That thing couldn't process its way out of a (wet) paper bag! Doom 3 on medium quality, 800x600 was a blistering 20-25 fps!
I got F.E.A.R for christmas one year, loaded it up, promptly shut it down: I knew the time had come.
Mind you, the 8800 ultras had an appaling failure rate that I saw. In a separate machine, I had 3 of the die. After only 2 years!

These are those I used in my main rig, there are others for secondary rigs in the low-end - mainstream area.
I've heard lots of bad critics for the FX-5200 performance, especially for 100 Euros that it did cost. You can't play anything at DX9 with it in practice, but, it was having acceptable DX8 performance. Gaming developers knew it sucked at DX9 and had it disabed by default for this card
