What graphics cards have you used from way back in the day?

Guillemot TNT2 Ultra 32MB -> Hercules Geforce2 GTS 64 -> ATI Radeon 8500
-> Leadtek Geforce4 TI4400 -> ATI RAdeon 9700 PRO -> and now Gainward GeforceFX 6800 GT GS

Heh been kinda back and forth since the old Geforce2.

Come lets dust off your old cards and see what you guys used.

Monster 3D voodoo 1 ~ $ 150
Creative labs Reva TNT 1 ~ $ 200
Creative labs Reva TNT 2 Ultra ~ $ 250
Creative labs, Graphics blaster, Geforce 1 pro - $ 300
Creative labs Geforce 2mx (slower than the geforce 1 pro) ~ $250
ASUS geforce 3 Ti 200 ~ $ 300
ASUS geforce 4 Ti 4200 ~ $ 300
Leadtek 6800 GT - $ 622.45

I still own the last three. I also know who I sold my Geforce 1 pro, and TNT 2 utlra to and they both recently blew up!

~ = about
- = exact price

It works out to about $ 2373 spent on video cards alone these past few years!

16Mb Tnt2 M64 (i quickly got rid of it once i learned what the 64 stood for )
16Mb V3 2000
128Mb Ti 4200
128Mb Ati 9600Xt

Had my ti 4200 not die on me, i'd still have it, but since it broke, i had to replace it with something. :D
I kept my V3 for around 3 years, the good old days.

Funny how many of us have tried the bittersweet nectar of ATI's seeping drivers at one point, and then came back to the one who never fails.

First pc since 93, I can only remember:

Intergrated somewhat
Cirrus logic something
Matrox mystique (poor game support, only tomb raider!)
Diamond Voodoo1
Hercules Voodoo2
Hercules Voodoo2 SLI (played CS for a long time and Celeron 300A @ 600!)
Voodoo3 (died)
Radeon 64MB DDR VIVO (not a day without a tear almost)
Asus GF4 Ti4200
GF FX5900U
GF FX5950U
MSI 6800GT (coming this monday)
