Default Re: How much have you spent on vid cards since PC gaming?

Hmm...

Voodoo 3 2000 PCI = $100
Geforce 2 GTS = $200
Geforce 4 Ti 4400 = $220
Geforce FX 5600 = $0 (RMA for 4400)
Radeon 9600 Pro = $30 (sold 5600 and bought this )
Geforce 6800GT = $300
Geforce 7900GTX = $500
Geforce 6200 = $30 (backup card)
Geforce 7950GX2 = $110 (step up)
Geforce 8800GTX = $75? (sold 7950GX2 and 6800GT)

Total = $1565

Really not all that much considering its been 9 years since I bought the Voodoo 3. Oblivion was responsible for me buying 3 video cards in 2006.

BTW, I didn't count the old cards I've bought. I have a couple dozen old cards laying around that I've never used in my main PC.
