    My GPU family history...:)

    Nvidia GeForce FX5200 128mb (not much to say here)

    ATi Radeon 9800PRO 256mb (Loved that card, have it in my wife's PC and it's still running strong)

    ATi Sapphire X800XT PE (never ran like I expected it should, Still have it)

    Nvidia eVGA 7900GTX 512mb (really nice card, and looks killer with the heat pipes, Still have it)

    Nvidia FOXCONN 8800GTX w/ Factory OC 630/2000 (Runs good, but needs tons of power and cooling to run well, Still have it)

    ASUS HD4870 512mb (Great card, runs everything, hard time with installing current drivers, wish I had the 1GB version and very impressed with ASUS GPU's)

    Whoever makes the best card. Intel???? may be not yet. I don't believe in brand loyalty. I believe in free market and competition.

    8400GS
    9500GT
    8600GT
    9400GT
    8800GT
    9800GT
    9800GTX+
    GTX260
    All cards I will be getting in doubles for testing SLi performance as well.

    Oh dear. I don't even remember them all. The oldest I remember using was a Diamond card (original Diamond before they merged, bankrupted, and reappeared later). It had like 4 MiB onboard memory which was :eek: back in the day. XD

    Since then (that I can recall)...
    ATI Radeon (R100) PCI 32 MiB
    NVIDIA M64 AGP 16 MiB
    ATI Radeon 7000 AGP 64 MiB
    Sapphire 9800 Pro AGP 128 MiB
    PowerColor X800 XL PCIE 256 MiB
    eVGA 8500 GT PCIE meh MiB (SERVER--cheapest DX10 card on the market at the time)
    eVGA 8800 GT PCIE 256 MiB
