Canadian HQ (formerly ATi) does 90% of graphics driver development. Its AMD's largest site.

If only I was smart enough/not like 7 years old at the time

Blameless Going through those pictures and finding it easier to count the cards I didn't have than the ones I did makes me realize that I've had almost one-hundred video cards in the last 25 years.

I experienced it again while I was building my retro gaming PC out of parts I've had stashed for 20-25 years.

First gpu I really used for gaming was a Ati Rage 128, Voodoo 3 and then a bit later my GF4 ti4200 128mb.
My only surviving AGP setup is my Super Socket 7 K6-III+ retro system, mostly use it for very late DOS games that emulation doesn't do justice to and a few Windows 95/98 titles that don't run correctly on anything else.

Wish I had saved one of my Socket A boards that was old enough to have an ISA slot.

skupples I wonder whats been hijacked over the years.

IT equipment thrown into an unsecured office always dwindles.

this reminds me - my next project is actually an elite win-XP gaming PC full of top of the line XP era hardware. So essentially a Dx9 beast. dos box gaming is just weird.

Sir Beregond Hope I am remembering correctly...

First computer I gamed on growing up I am quite certain had a Radeon 9800 Pro.

Others I can think of having in various computers over time....

- GeForce 4
- GeForce FX (was a midrange one if I recall, sucked)
- Radeon X1650 Pro (card was rock solid for what I was using it for at the time. Last AGP card we had I think...)
- 9800 GT
- Radeon HD 5770's
- GTX 670
- GTX 980
