I suppose the premise of the thread is, assuming people self-report honestly, members with heavily biased card histories are more likely to be viral marketers. Of course the whole thing is tongue-in-cheek but whatever.

Main rig progression:

Triton 2D something
Intel IGP 8200 something
Permedia Labs 3Dextreme
Geforce MX200
Geforce Ti 4600
Radeon 9800
Radeon X800
Geforce 7900
Radeon 4850 512mb
Radeon 5770 1Gb
Geforce 460Ti 1gb
Radeon 7950 3gb (current)

Secondary/Wifey's rig:

Geforce 7950 512Mb
Geforce 8200
Geforce 8800GTS 320Mb (beast of a card, SIMS3 like a boss nowadays)
Radeon 5770 (different than card above)

So there it is. Brown team ovah here!

Trident CGA isa
Trident 8xxx (or was it 9xxx?) VGA 512k isa (I finished x-wing1 with this)
Trident 9680 1Mb
S3 Virge
Creative Labs TNT2
Geforce MX2 (or was it 4?)
....

I can't remember what sort of bus (vlb/pci/agp?) and the vram size the last 2-3 cards had.

Edit-
I had a SB16 isa (first sound card) around the time of the Trident 8xxx.

I hope you had a soundblaster AWE32 to complement those later cards.

(back when sound cards had meaningful and HUGE differences between each other. They still do, but not as much as they did before!)

Well, the answer to who the possible "viral marketers" may be isn't from looking at people's buying history, but by the reactions to the 290X release, seen in this thread:

Should be quite obvious once you read "43dB can cause hearing damage" and associated FUD.

I hope to be hearing from you when the 780Ti launches. Then we can safely determine if you are as neutral as you claim to be.
I agree that there is tremendous FUD being spread. So tired of it from both sides.

It'll certainly be exciting if nV can put out a product and price it effectively to impact the market after now seeing what the 290X brings (both good and bad) and then see if the 290 (sans X) messes with nV's plans at all...

There's still plenty more to see before the market settles. But I think everyone should be pleased that all the cries of more than $700! for the 290X were all way off.

At least you understand the thread title.

The entire purpose of this thread is to point out how completely retarded anyone that calls someone a viral marketer on these forums is. If you post in VC&G you have been called a shill, or a viral marketer at some point in time. It's hilarious.

Had something older, something paired with my Pentium 1 at 90mhz. I was clueless with computers at the time; I remember overclocking it and it hitting 100C before it shut down due to heat. It ran for 5 minutes without a cpu cooler one time; was pretty robust.

S3 Savage 3D-Pentium 3
Geforce 3 ti200-Pared with Athlon XP 3200
Ati HD3850-AGP-Same Athlon XP 3200
Ati HD4870-Q9550
Nvidia GTX 260 core 216-Q9550
AMD HD6970-Q9550, now currently in my i7.
