    Mine is about 10 years old I think.

    1. MX440
    2. Radeon 9600pro
    3. GeForce 6600
    4. X1900XT
    5. ASUS HD4850

    Normally upgrade every 2 years or so. Or when something comes along that blows my card away, which most of those cards did to the previous one (apart from 9600pro, which made little difference, but I didn't know much then)
