    I have a Rage II using the PCI Mach64 GT chipset, Part# 109-38200-00, S/N SC 6 49 61603 but no digital camera to take a photo of it. Would a photo copy of the card work?

    Card seems to be dated 1996.

    you are right abt the EGA Wonder but the card on Ebay was a VGA Wonder+ from 1988. So if somebody can find a EGA Wonder, you are assured of the prize !!!!

    Well, I threw an old Hyundai 8088-era PC away awhile ago now that had an ATI video card, and it was only CGA/MDA/Hercules compatible which seems to be earlier than that....definitely had an ATI sticker on it....possiby an ATI "Graphics Solution" ISA card, and probably older than an EGA Wonder. You just never know what you should hang onto.

    I would advise against getting that motherboard. ASrock is a poor brand. I've never known anyone to have one work properly. I'm not even joking. They are really that bad.

    Perhaps...this motherboard gets decent reviews, however...so, multiple review sites seem to be able to get it to work.

    Edit: Ooops...this has gone off-topic...Sorry!

    Interesting idea for a contest.

    Here is a decent list of ATI's product history: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATI_Technologies

    I don't think I have any old ATI cards, although I have old cards from just about everyone else: Paradise (ISA), Tseng (ISA), Trident (ISA), S3 (PCI), 3dfx (AGP), and nVidia (AGP). My first IBM-compatible PC was a Wyse 286 with an EGA card once upon a time, but it was thrown out long ago and I don't know what brand the video card was.

    I also don't have a PCIe-based computer yet, so a new ATI card wouldn't do me any good anyways until I upgrade next year.

    Good luck to the contestants :)

    I will visit my garage in the weekend, which contains a lot of old computer material, maybe I find some nice old card :D

    //EDIT:
    Whats the oldest card people send in now? Because if there is a lot older card, I don't need to send it :)
    My neighbour has prolly a VGA Wonder XL (Seems like ATi still loves XL :))

    Well anyone with newer cards than the oldest card doesn't have a chance..

    It seems people with the oldest cards will be in a drawing.. Anyone who wants to take the gamble, and doesn't have the oldest card, go to those links I provided and buy the oldest card.

    Guys when submitting entries, I just need a simple and clear picture of the card, some people have been sending 10 megabyte+ emails (some with 10 shots of the same card from various angles) accompanied by "life history" style documention.

    All I need is a picture of the card, the name of the card and your forum name, simple as that !
