Worst Video card you have ever owned? - Page 34

post #331 of 454
It would have to be the OEM HD 6950 I bought a few months ago.

The moment I turned on my computer, the card fried itself and my board. Lost $300. sad-smiley-002.gif

I Had a Radeon 9200SE,man that was a dog.

Yeah, I wasn't too happy about it at the time. It did force me to go out and get a job though. Probably a net gain for any 17 year old in retrospect. Plus I ended up with an MSI GeForce 2 Ti 64MB which is my favorite graphics card to this day. Man that thing could overclock!

Some card I used around the year 2000, maybe one of the voodoo 3dfX cards. I requested a graphics card in our family computer for my birthday and could not seem to get anything working it was always hit or miss if you were going to play a game. I believe we then updated to windows xp eventually after going from 95-98-Me/2000-95-XP. God I hated that thing . I think it came with Sonic the Headchog on CD-ROM, that was the best part .

EDIT : Actually I seem to remember it being an nvidia chip and putting it into a pentium 4 sony vaio desktop where it barely fit because of how compact it was, couldn't have been very good . . . . hahaha

Forgot about this game ... http://www.gamespot.com/giants-citizen-kabuto

Dude, Trident video cards were awesome! I think mine was a Trident Color graphics card or something. It ran Civilization like it was nothing.
