They all sucked?

nVidia have always been pioneers, ATI always followed, one or two exceptions, but that has been generally the case since 1994.
I have to agree. Anything with an MX in the name sucked. Everything else was pretty awesome.

On a side note. When NV1 was launched, nVidia had only 30 employees.

30. Incredible, and then to launch the NV1, with integrated soundcard, and game port aswell. Nice.

Oh, my friend bought one of those when they were brand new. He had no games to speak of except the Sega game mentioned above, and some demo with dragon thingy if I recall correctly. It was amazing though. When I got my Voodoo1 card it wasn't so good any longer tho. :P

You can't be serious, the TNT2 blew everything the competition had out of the water at the time, it was nVidias ticket to the top. And I liked my GeForce DDR, it actually served in my friends computer all the way 'till 2003. (He was unemployed and borrowed old stuff from me, lol).

I thought the Geforce 4 ti 4200/4400's were pretty darn good at the time.

Mine lasted me until EQ2 hit and even that played Beta pretty darn well. It wasn't until a patch right after release that things went south and I had to upgrade.

The 4200 and 4400's were awesome cards for the price. Nvidia hadn't matched them in price vs performance until the 8800GT.
