    I know this has been done a bit before though I haven't seen a recent thread about what GPU's you have purchased over the years.

    Comments and thoughts on specific ones are welcome.

    I will start:

    Voodoo 2 16MB
    Inno3d Savage 2000 64MB (this lead me to buying the next in my list as although it had a "large" 64MB VRAM which as a noob fooled me it was piss poor at any kind of 3d gaming)
    Geforce 4 mx400 64MB (played Splinter Cell beautifully!)
    Geforce 4 Ti 4200
    Geforce 4 Ti 4600
    Geforce 5200
    Geforce 5700
    ATI Radeon 9800SE (unlocked to pro :rockout: )
    ATI X1600 pro (more of a side grade than an upgrade)
    ATI X1950 pro (awesome card)
    8800 GTS 320MB
    ATI HD4850
    ATI 4850 CrossfireX
    ATI 4890
    AMD HD5770
    AMD HD5770 CrossfireX (great bang for buck performance)
    GTX 470
    GTX570
    HD 7950


    I would say I definately upgrade more nowadays than when I first got into PC gaming, it's probably once a year/every 10 months or so just to keep up with current tech more than neccesity :eek:

    Thanks but I'm not young, wish I was :eek:. Built the first pc when I was 19 with the Asus Geforce FX 5200 (I actually just found some pics of it lol). Now at 28 with 2 7970s, a nice adjustment other than getting older. :laugh:
