    Just PC's

    Matrox Mystique 220 4Mb (PCI) - used for many years. Still got it, it'll go in a Linux box at some point.

    Matrox m3D 2Mb addon PowerVR - crap drivers -sold!

    OEM Voodoo 2 12Mb addon - used for a few years. Just sold to help pay for upgrades.

    OEM Viper 770 32Mb AGP card. My first AGP card. Recently sold to help pay for upgrades.

    OEM Geforce 2MX 32Mb AGP card. My current Gfx card. Good for up to 1024x768x16. Can't afford to change it anyway (and I might be emigrating).

    Also got a Acerlabs ISA Gfx card - handy for troubleshooting and a Geforce SDR 32Mb which I got for nothing (long story....)

    Interesting thread!

    Well, PC XT with Hercules ("high resolution" monochrome)-card,
    then VESA 2 MB SVGA (S3 chip?),
    then added Voodoo gfx 6 MB (Miro Hiscore 3D),
    Typhoon 12 MB Voodoo2, then Voodoo2 SLI
    then Elsa Gladiac 32 (GF2GTS)

    I started out with Cirrus Logic onboard, with a whopping 512K. Windows 3.1 in 256 colors never looked so good

    Then...
    Diamond Stealth 2000 ( 4mb, ViRGE, ewwwww )
    Hercules Thrller 3D ( 4mb, Rendition v2200 ). Quake. 640x480. 30fps. I loved that card.
    STB Velocity 4200, Riva TNT
    Matrox G400
    Matrox G400 MAX ( got it cheap, if you believe that )

    *** Now courting potential replacement for G400 MAX. Must provide good 2D quality and better 3D performance. Anyone? Anyone? ... Put your hand down, Matrox. ***

    Kudos for the unexpected:
    Trident 3DImage 975, for having better 2D quality than my old TNT and anything prior, despite having the 3D performance of a zucchini. Real cheap too
