Geforce FX 5700 256MB (F)

Just bought an 8800GTS 512MB, but its for my brother for Christmas.

Lucky ***. I think I'm getting a hard drive. Fair, right?

Oh yeah, I got him an Antec 900 too. I'm a nice guy.

ATI Rage IIC 4MB (got it along with the TNT2 for free, but didn't use it, since the TNT2 was better)

Nvidia TNT2 Pro 32MB (Overclocked the bejeeses out of it. still own it, and it still works)

Geforce 6200 256MB (NON-turbocache) (In my second PC, being used by the family)

XFX 7900 GT 256MB (friend's power supply killed it. I'm hoping it can be revived by soldering new components onto the PCB)

Gainward 7900 GT 512MB (started artifacting, and eventually died for no apparent reason)

Leadtek 7950 GT 256MB (GPU melted after water block wasn't installed properly)

I owned a ati 9000 or 8500 i cant remember which one for regular pci on a compaq celeron 700mhz presario. I paid around 70 bucks I think.

My next one was a ati 9200se which worked alright at 800x600 on halo. That also was around 70 bucks.

My next one after that was a Nvidia 6800 OC AGP port with the first amd64 processors. I paid around 230 bucks for that.

and after that I got a x600 mobile graphics on a laptop that will do all high settings in halo at around 30fps.

I got a 7600 GT after that, I never used it

And my latest is a evga 8800GTX that will run all very well coded games on max. Microsoft flight and Im sure crysis ( ive never played it ) will run horrible on it due to poor coding.

So my list is
8500 or 9000 - D
9200se - lost - B
6800 OC - have - A
X600 - have - A
7600 GT - sold - dont know
8800GTX - have - B
