    I'll have to work on my list, but seeing your Geforce 4 Ti 4200 brings back memories.. That card was kickass! I had picked up a Geforce ? mx 64mb something or another at bestbuy for $149 and it sucked at playing bf 1942.. So, one day when I got off work I when buy Walmart and I was in the electronics section and see a table full of discounted items and low and behold they had a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 128mb card setting there for $149.. My mouth dropped because I seen it at bestbuy for $199. I picked the Geforce 4 Ti 4200 up and walked up to the register and the guy scanned the box and BAM it rang up for $110 dollar! I asked the guy is that right because the box says $149 and the guy says yep the price dropped again today I haven't had time to put a new sticker on it. I handed him my card and headed home. I installed it and at the time I had a athlon 1600xp over clocked to a athlon 1700xp with 1gb of ram. It blew my MX card out of the water! BF 1942 played like a dream. :toast: The next card to give me that kind of a jump in performance was my ATI 9700 pro! :toast: Aww if only we could get GPU's to give us a jump in performance like that.. :toast:

    the ones in machines I've used for over a few months are:
    GeForce 5800XT
    Radeon X1900
    GeForce 7300LE
    GTX 470
    GTX 470 (SLI) <- they performed well when frozen until the heating/cooling cycle eventually killed both
    GTX 8800 Ultra
    Radeon 6670
    Radeon 7950
    GTX 580 (I bought this from CEX,then the same day got a 680 for cheaper so I took this back without even firing it up!)
    GTX 680
    There were plenty more infinitely forgettable GPU's but these ones stay in the mind for whatever reasons..

    Not sure I can remember all of them thru the years, but I DO remember (and still have) my first Purchase: a Viper V550 16Mb card :) gone thru a couple until I made it to a pair of 7900GS's, A 9800 GT, and the 6950's I'm running right now.

    Let's see.


    Geforce 4 MX440 - was in my mom's computer that I spent hundreds of hours playing Warcraft 3 on

    Geforce FX 5200 - was in my grandparent's computer that I used to play games on when I was 12

    ATI Radeon 9800 pro - was my first legit card ever. I got it in a build by my uncle for my 13th birthday.

    ATI Radeon X850 XT - got in next Christmas because I was very spoiled.

    EVGA 9800 GT - got it in an ibuypower build for my 16th birthday.

    Sapphire HD 5770 - don't remember the story behind this one, but it was probably just a year later (2009). the first time I bought my own graphics card

    Sapphire HD 6870 - bought in 2010.. died on me, rma'd it and received another one that was broken out of the box! dangit sapphire.

    EVGA GTX 580 - got a real job and built my first pc (2011)

    EVGA GTX 670 - got it on black friday, could not resist the price! (~$319.99, GTX 670 FTW Sig 2), built a rig for my friend and gave him the 580 so he could finally game with the rest of my pals

    I have only been gaming on a computer for a short time. I started with a HD 4770 and bought another to put in crossfire. Ok performance, but now I have a HD 7850 I bought for $150 as Open Box. That was 3-4 months ago. I also bough a 3870 for $20 because I am slowly culminating all the parts for a retro build.
