With the fact now nearly everyone buys a new graphics card after one or three years, Who remembers the first or second ever Graphics card?
I was 18 when i bought my 1st Card, Orchid Righteous 3D - 3dfx Voodoo 4MB for just £105 GBP, it was only used in 3D games, when in Windows, the 2D card was used. You could hear the mechanical relay click in when you went into a 3D game like, GTA, Carmageddon, or Jedi Knight.
Of course come 2000 i was need of a serious Hardware upgrade, i built a new PC (AMD K6-2 450Mhz). I bought my second ever GPU it was the Creative Labs, Nvidia Riva TNT2 Ultra 32Mb for a mere £150 GBP
I can actually remember every GPU purchase for the past 18 years, but hey thats gaming for ya.
What was the first video card you ever bought?
