Thread: What graphics cards have you had?

    What graphics cards have you had?

    SemiAccurate being an ATI fanboy coven is an opinion that certainly gets tossed around on other forums, but I rather feel we are a bunch of SemiIntelligent, SemiAgnostic and SemiCynical people.

    What cards, integrated and discrete, have you had? If you care to share.

    For me:

    ATI: Radeon HD 3200
    Nvidia: GeForce 2 MX400, GeForce 4 Ti4200, GeForce 6800, GeForce 8600GT
    Other: The Amiga 500 blitter
    Unknown/Don't Care: Integrated stuff in an old laptop, a couple of old macs.
    Looking forward to buying: Radeon HD 5850

    Some onboard stuff i dont know the name of (1994)
    Nvidia TNT2
    Nvidia Geforce 3 Ti200
    NVidia Geforce 4 MX400 Forgot I had this in a server
    Nvidia Geforce 5900xt
    Nvidia Geforce 7900gt
    ATi Radeon HD 3200 + HD 4850 (My Current)

    Add to this 2 intel onboards in laptops

  3. #3
    ATI: Radeon 9600, 3870x2(one week), 4850CF
    Intel: two IGP's
    Matrox: Mystique
    Nvidia: riva TNT2,GeForce 2 MX200,MX400, ordered 2x 8800ultra but changed my mind. one other in the mean time but then i didn't even care nor remember
    3dfx:Voodoo(still got it)
    Unknown/Don't Care: I had more Nvidia cards but I wasn't really using or toying with them, I was a reseller so had some hardware
    Looking forward to buying: Radeon HD 5870

    Btw. I think it is not that essentially relevant to gpu's discussion and this tread should be moved to off topic.

    In order:

    - Voodoo 3 3500
    - GeForce 4 Ti 4600

    - Radeon X1950 Pro
    - Radeon HD 4850 (custom Sapphire design)

    Geforce 3
    Core 216
    And an 8400m part, before the bumpgate story was released :<



    My core 216 purchase could have easily been a 4870 1GB, but the 216 was about 20-30 bucks cheaper at the time. I'm not a fanboy of either company I just buy what makes the most sense to me at the given time. My next card purchase will probably be during the refresh of the 5850 or 5870 if some game that I want actually needs that much power by then.

    Let's see...
    - S3 Virge DX
    - NVidia GeForce 4 MX
    - ATi 9600 Pro
    - ATi x600 Pro (very short time)
    - ATi x700 Pro
    - NVidia 6600 GT
    - ATi HD 2600 XT
    - Now on the fence... 4770 looks nice...
