The worst that I know of is the ATI RAGE IIC PCI card I still have, actually.
I keep it incase this one gets fried so I can enable my onboard one.

But I've had worse probobly, on the 486 com I had years back, I bet that sucks now

And the one I had on the one before it... if it had a gfx card at all

i had the ati rage fury max, it had two gpus on it. two rage 128 pros. it sucked because it only ran at agp 2x and and it woudln't work for the longest time and took about a week to figure out that it only ran at agp 2x when the box said 2x/4x . it only meant the card would fit in the agp 4x slot, but still run at 2x.


stumped me for about a week.

To DVtriple6 just curious on how you run anything on that card of yours, not to be offensive but i had a 7300gs (612mhz/1.50ghz) no more than 3 days ago before i got my 8600 and it struggled to run anything. I salute you for putting up with it.

First I must ask worst performance wise or worst card for what you pay for? Answering to the second part, the worst I ever had was one of the infamous nvidia 5800 ultras. I bought it based on all the hype at the time that it was supposed to be faster than the 9700 Pro and I paid a premium price for that too. After a month it got chucked aside to make way for a 9700 Pro, I would have to say the "enhanced" drivers nvidia used to benchmark pissed me off and I think that was a turning point for me as I have been weary to buy another nvidia card since.

Intel GMA950 onboard from my previous Gigabyte motherboard.

And worst card would be my AOpen FX5200 128MB. It ran at 250MHz GPU and 300MHz on the memory. I would get low fps on lowest settings in all my games.
That card was good to me though. It now rests in my cupboard.
