    I had a 2MB VLB Trident Vid Card, cost me $250 in '94, damn that thing was amazing (32bit color!)

    It kicked ass. I had a CGA and EGA vid cards before that :D

    Re:

    Ah I see.../me didn't get into the interest of computer hardware until 3 years ago (14 here, by the way).

    First 'PC' I touched was an 80286 running at 12 MHz, 2 MB RAM, EGA graphics, MS-DOS 6.0 and Windows 3.1)

    The 600 MHz P3 I have with me (the rig I constructed 2 years ago), I still use to this day. The graphics card and networking, along with the OS, has gone through many generations.

    Re:

    I believe the chipset on the card there was the crappy ViRGE... first dubbed as the official '3D decelerator' ;)

    Heck, that damn chip didn't even have a hardware triangle setup engine. :mad:

    Try overclocking that thing and all you'll receive is degraded performance. ;)

    Lol It doesn't work no more.

    The com it came with refuses to accept it now.

    It hangs the bios EVERY time its in it. :mad:

    Here I thought I fucked the chip when I used a drill to remove those fucking OEM screw's holding that hunk of steel on it. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    (PII 300 OEM)

    Re:

    Back in those days, you were considered very lucky if your 2D card was capable of displaying 24-bit color at any resolution.

    Now I have flashbacks of playing Doom at 640×480 in 256 colors...at a mere 20 fps on a 486DX/66. :eek:

    Re:

    Yeah, that's the sign of your computer spitting out the card, because it's utter junk. ;)
    But still, it's sad not to have a functional graphics card. It could be used as a great doorstep though.

    Re:

    Always keep those old machines...they can be put through some good use.

    For example, where I work, the primary web server is running on a 486SX/33 running OpenVMS!

    Ahh...now back to the days when floppy disks were actually 'floppy' ;)
