Diamond Monster Stealth 3D 2000 (my first accelerator), though I don't consider it to be very old :)

(state of the art in '96 I believe)

I don't remember what was the name of this on-board graphics chip I had on my 286 :)

Voodoo 3 ---> Ati Radeon 1 32mb SDR ---> Ati Radeon 8500 ---> Ati Radeon 9700Pro

You still use your 286? :eek: I have an old compaq portable but I need a replacement keyboard to use it, then I would be king of old video cards.

I've got a PCI Intergraph 3D VooDoo Rush in a Pentium I 133 machine with a whopping 64MB of ram behind my shoulder. Baby runs like a dream too. My new machines have hickups from time to time, but that box is bulletproof.

Matrox millenium, I still have this around. It's 2D card isn't it ?
Anyway, this thing ran my Red Alert 2 soooo smoothly :)

Oldest currently in use is a Rage 128 Pro II (16MB).

I just recently though took my PPro server off-line (probably will put it back on line as a print server or something ridiculously useless after I move). It had some old 512kB ISA video card in it... I'll have to dig it out of the box and see what it was. :)

I have a Diamond Edge 3D 2MB (NV1 chipset).
However, I'm not running it anymore.

I have a S3 Virge 2MB + Diamond Monster 3D in a Pentium Pro PC.

Diamond Stealth 64 using the S3 Vision 864 (I think?) on a 25MHz 386 DX. Man, that card really dominated the market during the Doom and WingCommander II/III days.

I do have an old Orchid Farhenheit VA card which used the VESA bus extention from the ISA bus. THAT was a cool card. EXPENSIVE too; I remember shelling out well over $400 each for these cards back in the day...

all I have is 2 working S3 virges hehe:D

My old laptop has a Chips & Technologies something or other. It you're old enough to remember when C&T made graphics, then you'll know that I win!!! (so far at least).
