Nooo.... but i wish i had one. Only the next upcoming nvidia card is for sale on ebay: the Riva 128

I wish i had one of each series. Nv1 a.k.a pre-geforce, geforce 256, geforce 2 Mx, geforce 3, geforce 4 Ti 4400, geforce FX 5600, geforce 6800, geforce 7800 GTX, geforce 8800 GTX (already own) and the new 9800gtx. I bet a thousand dollars on that geforce 9 will be the last set of cards in the holy geforce series and a new name will be born... Maybe something like Nvidia Calhorn or Luminance. Who knows

I really want one of these. I have a small collection of older graphics cards. Mostly Voodoo. I have 3 Voodoo 2s (one 8Mb and 2 12Mb), one Voodoo 1, a Voodoo 3 and a Voodoo 5. Most of them are working in PCs.

I also have a Riva 128, TNT, TNT 2, a few Geforce 2s, Geforce 4 ti 4400, FX 5200, Kyro II, Matrox Millennium, Matrox Millenium 2, Rendition Verite 1000... and a bunch of others.

I love this old crap.

I used to have one back in the day. Only game that made use of it was the Sega fighting game that came with it. From what I remember it did sound as well. Got rid of it after I armed myself with a matrox millenium + powerVR1 card. The only game that worked with that was ultimate race that, again, came with the card. (Cool game, but you can only go round one track so many times before it got boring). Finally, after alot of wasting money, I got a Orchid Righteous 3D 3DFX card. Never looked back after that.

Wow! That's very cool to see. My first card was a PNY 3DFX Voodoo3 3000 16MB AGP. Summer of '99.

Ahhh 3DFX, we where all pioneers back then. I still remember getting my Orchid 3D. I was like a school kid. Put it in and popped in GLQuake and my jaw almost hit the floor. It was so pretty, it almost brings a tear to my eye.

I have almost all high end cards from 1994 to 2003, collector of them. Over 80 cards by now.

Here is my NV1 3240 with Sega Saturn Plugs and driver CD. (The Date on the sticker is the date is was announced, not the day it was available, there used to be a huge difference between the two hehe.) $67.50 bidding ended.

My oldest boards are perhaps the Imagine 128 boards, by Number nine, got them in both 4mb and 8mb. (4mb pictured)

Except the Riva128, Riva 128ZX, Riva TNT, TNT2, TNT2 Ultra, Geforce 256, Geforce 2 GTS, Geforce 2 Ultra.

They all sucked?

nVidia have always been pioneers, ATI always followed, one or two exceptions, but that has been generally the case since 1994.
