    EVGA GTX 980 Classified
    ATI radeon 7500LE 64MB DDR AGP bought in 2001
    PNY Nvidia 6200 256MB DDR2 AGP bought in 2005
    BFG Nvidia 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI-e bought in early 2006
    EVGA Nvidia 7950GX2 1GB GDDR3 SC PCI-e bought in late 2006
    PNY Nvidia GTX 460 1GB GDDR5 OC PCI-e bought 2 weeks ago

    I think the 6200 was the best card I’ve ever bought, it was a huge jump up from the ATI 7500LE and at the moment is still working happily in my back up computer. Second best has to be the 7950GX2 followed by the 7600GT then the GTX 460 leaving the 7500LE as the worst I’ve ever bought but it’s the worst of a very good bunch and still have happy memories of playing the likes of Giants: citizen kabuto, Unreal and the original Half-life on it.

    Since I started back in 1995:

    ATi Rage II 4MB
    3dfx Voodoo3 3000 16MB
    GeForce2 MX 32MB
    GeForce4 MX 440 64MB
    GeForce5 FX 5700 128MB
    GeForce7 7600GS 256MB
    GeForce9 9600GT 512MB

    Out of all the above cards the one card that gave me the most enjoyment was the Voodoo3!! The only ATi card I have ever owned was that POS RageII and I swore I would never buy anything again with an ATi logo attached to it. I never have to this day heh...
