    What graphics card(s) do you have in your computer(s)?

    In my main computer I have a 3dfx Voodoo4 4500 AGP, and in my other one I have an ATI Radeon 64MB DDR.

    So what do you have, if you know...?

    But when I get my new system, I will have a G-Force 4 TI 128mb.

    I have a Creative Geforce 2 GTS, 32mb. Bought it when it was brand new. I haven´t updated my computer in a long time, lost interest due to I don´t play games nearly as much as I did.

    yeah same. i used to be an avid gamer. i dont have a single game on my pc right now.
  5. Some 32 Mb GeForce card. I don't play too many games, but it seems to handle them all fine, even those that supposedly require a 64 Mb card or higher.

    What would yall suggest. I am thinking of replacing mine and I don't know where to start. I do a lot of pretty graphics intensive stuff, so I want a pretty good one.

    i would recommend you get a video card by ati.

    if you have a newer computer, get an ati radeon 8500 or better. those are nice cards.
  8. I have a Radeon 9000 pro 128Mb. Works very well, the TV-output is awsome for movies, and the drivers are stable. Best of all, it only cost me ~120€

    i was like that since after leaving college, but recently a friend turned me onto "Splinter Cell", and holy crap, i couldnt stop playing it!

    oh, and for the record, i use a Geforce 3. i've been thinking about getting a Radeon 9800, but ATI's soo bad with the driver revisions and drivers in general that i dont wanna risk it.


    holy crap, you still have a Voodoo card?! wow, there's an oldie. somebody tell me they still have their RIVA 128! ;)

    More then enough for my need.
    War craft 2 and starcraft don't need a very big video card!
    Now that i have an Xbox I never play on the computer anyway.

    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro. Got it when I got my new computer. I was strictly an nVIDIA guy before, but I'm very happy with the card.

    yea, still do. its more of a sentimental thing. back in the 3dfx days, when they owned the industry, i was strictly a 3dfx buyer. nowadays keeping their last-ever released product in my computer just reminds me of all the good times i had when they were around.:bawl: and, nobody has a voodoo card anymore. its just my thing.
    it works for some games, but i dont play much if any anymore.

    I initially stuck with an oldie for this rig, simply because I ran out of money. I was using a Voodoo 3 3000 PCI, good card in its time (in fact, the best). After that, I upgraded to a Radeon 8500, which again was the best in its time. It was shortly before the NV25 series cards came out (GeForce 4's). After this, I had a problem with a vmod going wrong and ended up burning the card and needing a new card. I purchases an MSI GeForce 4 ti4600, lesson learned. Vmods with pencil lead as a conductor is not a good idea, as you can't gauge how much lead you've used and how much should be used.

    Finally, the ti4600 died after it met its death, upon the bga ramsink meeting a 6k RPM fan. After this, I've settled down with my Radeon 9700 Pro, which I've been keeping stock.

    Actually, they still are some of the best cards for flight sims and so forth. :)
