    800 x 600 16bit limit D: D:

    Banshee, the MX/SE/LE of old :D

    Still remember the R300 series by ATi, shamed the nVidia's GeForce 4 and FX series of cards :D

    And speaking of FX, The GeForce FX 5800 "DustBuster" Ultra :D

    Graphics cards I have owned over the years:

    A bunch of S3 GPUs
    Riva TNT2 AGP
    GeForce2 MX200 AGP
    GeForce MX4000 AGP
    Radeon 9600 XT AGP
    GeForce 6600GT 128MB AGP
    Radeon X1950Pro 256MB AGP (my last ATI card, due to bad experiences)
    GeForce 8800GTS G92 512MB
    GeForce GTX 260 Core 216
    GeForce GTX 470
    GeForce GTX 670

    Of course, I would love to show photos and benchmarks of the older cards, but unfortunately I either sold them on or took them to a computer recycling plant (as well as most the older components required to run them). :ohwell:
