    1. Intel extreme chipset (2005)
    2. Radeon 9250 256mb PCI (Visiontek) (March 2005-2008 June)
    3. Radeon X1800XT 256mb PCI-e (Unsure of brand) (June 2008 - November 2008)
    4. 8800GTX 768mb PCI-e (eVGA) (late november)

    I'm an AMD/ATI fan, but I'm willing to buy whatever looks like it's best for me.

    LOL - I think I will flunk this part of the resume'
    some of these are wild guesses:
    let's see the 8086 12mhz had a 64k ? The ham radio guys loved those though.
    skipping a bunch
    80386 20mhz- maybe a trident 128k - it ran linux compiled - and doom1 great.
    Skipping the vesa and eisa weird ones (the LONG brown slot32vesa and LONG black slot16isa some probably have never seen)
    ~ two dozen or whatever half meg-meg flavors from ati mach 64 to trident 9800 1 megs, S3 -pci
    Diamond 1meg add2 chips for 2 meg ( these were like adding 2 long bios chips in the "brown frames" )
    ATI onboards galore - pentium 60 to 200mmx
    cripes Vanta - voodoo (8 meg)
    intel 8 meg agp (name escapes me now but it was pretty good and popular)
    voodoo2 pci (12 meg)
    strange gigantic pci "cad" freak cards with onboard 30 or 72 pin ram(4 -16 meg total)
    ~two dozen or whatever various integrated pcchips and intel flavors shared up to 128meg
    16 meg matrox
    12 16 32 64 meg earlies from S3tc texture - Banshees - Ti - to geforce2 mx 400 etc
    radeon AIW 128 + flavors
    9600's area and above
    x300 (pci e 128 meg)
    6800's etc
    1900's some agp
    anyway... I've got boxfulls.

    Currently an oc GTX260/192

    Gfx History

    I started out with a GeForce 4 MX440, went up to a 9200, then 9200se, then a 9600 pro, from that to an X1600, and finally my 2 HD4850's.
