    Company = MSI

    GPU = HD 6950

    SKU = OC Edition

    Great cooling system and a great card in general, runs cool even when overclocked ridiculously and it gives me a good reason to stick with MSI in the future.

    Favorite of all time, or of personally owned...

    Nvidia: GTX 275! Yeah baby, I loved that card over my old 9600GT.

    AMD: 3870x2 Damn thing was a waffle iron and could fry an egg, but it kicked ass!

    My current card: Club3D AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB.
    For the price, I have a card that can overclock 50% over its stock clock, while not overheating, and being very(relatively ofc) cheap.

    Never had so much value for my money before:)

    EDIT: It's this card: http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/radeon-hd-7950.html
    You dont have it in your database, and I believe HIS uses the exact same cooler/board design for one of its cheaper models.

    Geforce 6600 with 256 mb of RAM, despite being slow compared to a 6600 GT it ran Medieval 2 fairly well w/out lighting turned up.
    BFG Geforce 8800 GTS 512 and it served me very well, until BF 3. I miss this brand.

    It was a great card even for Bad Company 2; great buy for $230. Sold it to a friend for $40 when I upgraded to an ASUS EAH6850.

    The 6850 is not a bad card by any means but could be better, when it comes to BF 3.

    Palit GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo 1GB
    The card runs cool, has soft red lights, and easily plays games at 1920 x 1200. It even has a VGA port so you don't need an adapter for older monitors and the 1 GB means it's 32-bit OS friendly. So yeah... great card that does just about everything and easily goes with just about any system.

    I'm rather fond of my current 5870. The fan died in it so I ziptied an 80mm case fan to it instead and it runs about the same (this happened recently). Even though I destroyed one of the fan header pins on the board when I removed the plastic housing (I was going to simply force the 3 pin case fan header on the corresponding pins in the smaller 4 pin fan header), I wound up plugging the fan into a header on my motherboard anyway and it still runs fine.

    For the ATi/AMD camp i go with the,

    Company = HIS

    Card = 4870X2 Had two of these in quadfire and would still give modern cards a run for there money. (6950's beat down)

    For the Nvidia camp i go with the,

    Company = Gainward

    Card = GTX 650 Ti GS For the cost, power consumption, heat output and performance its just truly an awesome card.

    Both Reference cards

    The Zotac 8800GT AMP duo still hold a nostalgic place for me...

    I still have a Diamond 5850 that is the most screaming single card I have ever owned.

    I was quite fond on my xfx 9800gt 512mb green edition. I had other gpu's before it, but it was my first actual experience having a gpu.

    My saphire 7970 OC (non boost) dual x cooling is the best gpu I have ever had. I have not had a card that overclocks like this one before and it is a crunching powerhouse.

    I would have to say that my first card was my favorite. The ATI 9600 XT:)
    I was able to play DOOM3, Quake 4 and other games with a PC!!!

    I was happier with PC's before the need for these stupid devices and look forward to the day when they disappear...
    but anyways my current is my favorite and hopefully it will outlive the need for another.
    AMD: Sapphire
    HD6950 (it unlocked for extra value)
    SKU: Reference
