I remember the good old days of tweaking my P3 650 with 192MB of sdr133 and AGP S3 Savage4 32MB.
Getting games to run well (16bit color) (ST-Armada, QuakeIIIA, UT, DeusEX) was the most fun I had. I actually had to patch together a WinXP driver for the S3 to run Return to Castle Wolfenstein (openGL). That was 4-6 years ago, nowadays I have a bit more money, and I'm not squeazing quite as much from my hardware anymore, I replaced a Ti4200 in january 2004 with a FX5900xt. I just know that when GTs will be <=300$ CAN, I'll be buying.
It's not exactly like my Ti4200 couldn't run games anymore, I just wanted to be able to stop seeing this 'moirĂ©' in far away side-seen textures... (AF)
