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

Goodness me! I'd be too terrified to tally all the cards up, there has been so many over the years -- permedia 2, voodoo 1, voodoo 2, Savage 3D, then just about everything nvidia has every produced bar the Riva 128.

The most expensive nvidia cards were the Geforce 2 Pro, 2x 8800GTX and 2x GTX280, the rest were pretty reasonable price wise but the expensive ones were/are all extraordinary performers in their day (and even long after their day) so I have no regrets.
