    hey everyone, I would like people who are interested, to post which gpu is their favorite.
    list with the company, gpu, and sku

    Company = EVGA, Sapphire etc.

    GPU = GTX 680, HD 7970 etc.

    SKU = Referance, Superclocked!, TOXIC etc.
    sometimes even this info is not enough so list the memory amount aswel ^^

    or you can just list your current card and I will add it to the gpu db :)

    Company = 3dfx
    GPU = vsa100
    SKU = voodoo 5 5500 pci pc

    testament to this gpu is the fact it still runs to this day. Not only that it's a very decent card to have if you want to play old 16bit colour games in a modern machine. PCI specifications haven't changed :D


    Company = ATI

    GPU = r300

    SKU = 9700pro agp.

    Probably the second longest lived of all my working gpu's I was using it in a system with no need to upgrade for a very long time. I got it in the release year, and the card that replaced it was an ati x1950pro. That equates to about 5 years of working life.

    I had two of these ridiculous folding beasts back then, many WU's folded until both had a tragic death in a single month span, one GPU core failure.

    This is the ATI Radeon 9500 that was soft-modded through drivers to a 9700 with great success...

    Company: SapphireTech
    Card: ATI Radeon 9500 Atlantis AGP 8X 128MB DDR Video Card w/TV-Out & DVI
    SKU: Not available

    Cost, in Jan 2003: $158.99

    Supplanted by an X800GTO in 2005, which was also a great card.

    Come on man, show some nostalgia, lol

    My Lovely ASUS 9999/TD which served me well until 2010, when I got my laptop, and shortly after that, it began artifacting. :p

    A GeForce 6800 AGP 8x with 128MB DDR. (Only ran at 4x due to motherboard limitation)


    Edit: Also taken a like to the AMD APUs.
