Can't remember what was in the 486 33 MHz machine. But my Pentium 200 MMX had a S3 Virge 4MB - and it's STILL running in my parents house. lol

first graphics I had (capable of rendering something better then a stick figure) was my integrated Sis 530 chipset graphics complete with Voodoo 2 Black Magic by STB Systems Go 3d Accelerator!

First standalone graphics card though was an ATI Radeon 64mb DDR VIVO (used Radeon 7200 GPU)

Default Re:


Well it was more of a 'Our first graphics card'.

We had a crappy Matrox Mystique 220 4MB PCI card. It was way crap!

My first card was an ATI Radeon 9200 128MB AGP Graphics Card, now part of the hand-me-down chain .
