My first real graphics card was a Cirrus Logic VL-Bus card with 512k. Man was that thing great matched up with my AMD 486DX4-120. I could play Need for Speed in full detail! lol I upgraged that to a Trident PCI 2mb card when I got my k6. Then was my ATI Rage II M64+ in my P-233MXX. Then a TNT in my K6III-450 Then a TNT2-m64 in my 650 Athy. Last but not least is my TNT2 Ulta that I currently use and baddly need to replace! But hey it scores a blistering 2265 3DMarks in 2001.. lol ahh the mighty upgrade path..
I didn't even mention the ZX-81. A whole 1K (yes, 1024 bytes) of RAM, _including_ the video memory. Able to display 32x24 text characters in B&W, or a mondo 64x48 graphics mode, still B&W. (Yes, 64x48, I didn't miss any zeroes there.)
Used the CPU as a graphics chip, literally. As in: even for the screen refresh. You could either turn the display off, or run at about 1/5 of the normal speed. (Which wasn't that hot to start with.)
Learned assembly on that thing, but you had to convert it to hex by hand. It just didn't have enough memory to run an assembler or compiler.
And even that probably doesn't really count as ancient history.
