Best card


* MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming : Bought it in 2015. Gave it to a friend when I upgraded to 4k, because it can't make the cut at that resolution and I needed an urgent upgrade after moving to my Acer X27. Has 6GB and still very potent to this day at 1080p and 1440p. Was one of my greatest purchases ever. Lasting 4 years playing games at Very High and not being constrained by VRAM and not totally gimped at driver level (like the infamous 700 series) is a great achievement. Not only that, it also overclocked really well.


Great cards


* EVGA GTX 470 1280MB : Bought it only for $225 at release. A 9000 folds step up from my 7600 GS and was the first card I owned to max out almost all the games at the time of its release, the image quality increase in games maxed out at 1080p (60fps+) when compared to low 800x600 (20fps+) was miraculous.

* Gigabyte HD 7950 WF3 : Sold the 670 and bought that card later, overall faster when overclocked and had 1 extra GB, an old OCNer @raghu78 was a great marketer for these cards and he was the one to convince me to buy one of these.

* 2x Zotac RTX 2080 Ti AMP Ed : Great card that managed to allow me to play at 4k with max or near max settings. The crispness is incomparable with my Acer X27 when compared to my other monitors. But too bad it burnt a hole in my wallet.


Neutral


* EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2048MB : Faster than the 470 by a good chunk. Was as fast as AMD's HD 7970, till AMD smoked it with their 12.11 WHQL drivers and HD 7970 GHz Edition release.


Garbage cards that I regret I wasted money on


* XFX FX 5500 256MB AGP : Was the first graphics card I bought from my savings, didn't play games well, unless set at 640x480 (1280x1024 was a high-end resolution back then) but I was a kid and it was all I can afford.

* PNY 7600 GS 512MB : Was a huge step up from the FX 5500 but still felt sluggish overall due to my Pentium 4 Prescott rig and its slow memory (533 MHz GDDR2 ram) but my budget was limited since I was a teen.

* EVGA GTX 780 Ti ACX : Had only 3GB VRAM, Watch Dogs was the first slap to the face to make this card a stutterfist with Ultra High textures, second slap was Shadow of Mordor, third slap was the neglected driver support from Nvidia when Maxwell released, leaving this card behind in the abyss, and the total ownage by AMD's R9-290X later in the game. Dropped $800 on the card, not happy at all. It also was a total dud overclocker that crash even with a meager +13 increase on the core. GTX 780 Ti was a nearsighted trash card, one of the worst I've ever owned.

* ASUS R9-290 4GB DCII : Hawaii was a great chip that lasted for a very long time, it is still good at playing games at 1080p with lowered settings. But that specific card was nothing short of garbage. Constantly reached 95c under load despite the beefy cooler, I researched more to find out the cooler was intended for GK110, that's why it didn't work very well at cooling the 290 (a way too late research).

yep, anyone that went 780TI should'a just went full blown Titan nearly a year earlier. You wouldn't have felt jipped due to a short life cycle. Specially with an EK block and basic cmd usage skills.

Best.
Creative 3D Blaster Riva TNT2 Ultra Gamer 32MB AGP. The card that changed my world from 16bit to 32bit gaming, and it was even possible for me to play Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator in 1280x1024 32bit max setting. Totally unheard of in 1999.

Great.
Palit Daytona GeForce 3 Ti 200 128MB AGP. Cheap card that I almost got to Ti 500 performance with a custom 40mm fan mounted on top.
Sapphire Radeon 9500 Atlantis Pro 128MB AGP. Price to performance was unheard of and it could beat the GeForce 4Ti 4600 128MB card.
MSI GeForce GTX 980Ti 6GB. A card with such a long lease on life and 4 years after it's introduction, it still holds up very well.

Neutral.
ATi Rage Fury MAXX 64MB. I really really wanted to like this card, and I did, but the drivers were poor and ATi only released two drivers in it's life span.

Waste.
Gigabyte GeForce 9800GT Golden Sample 1GB. I really wans't impressed with the 9800 series over the 8800 series although I became quite popular among many buyers.

Worst: 4870x2. Had two of them and they both died shortly outside the 3 year warranty period. Ran extremely hot and loud. Drivers and general performance were terrible, would get like 30 fps in games with or without crossfire enabled, stuttered a lot

Best: GTX 680 MSI Lightning, no complaints

In between:
Radeon 9700 Pro, great but had to return twice under warranty due to the whole card dying
Titan RTX: Noticeable coil while, other than that great
1080 Ti SLI: The Gigabyte program to change the colors doesn't work so I am stuck with red LEDs, one of the stickers is bubbling off. Other than that they work great, no SLI issues, runs very smooth

Great card to top your best list, I agree for the same reason. 16-bit color in games always appeared oddly dithered to me, so metal or concrete looked more like ..carpet.. to me. Games like half-life took quite the performance hit in 32-bit but looked so much better.

It's funny how in retro gaming / collecting circles the 3dfx voodoo cards of that era have made such a huge comeback in terms of value and nostalgia. IIRC 3DFX V3s didn't support 32-bit at all and came in mid 99.. TNT2s are worth a fraction of what a V3 is but by 99-00 were an absolute no brainer to buy. Voodoo 2 was the peak of the 3dfx times.
