Ah, I remember the Riva TNT. Fond memories. It's just so sad that new cards cost so much money. It's a real bank breaker.
My specific Riva TNT2 was strangely good. It cost 100€, and could run NOLF (which was supposedly a big system hog) at max settings with 1024x768 resolution and more than acceptable frame rates. The M64 was the budget version.

Before that I remember having a 1 MB video card in my family's first computer, a P133 IBM Aptiva, and I have no idea what was in the Dell they bought five years ago.

Seriously, though, the card I just bought is probably the most cutting edge I've ever bought.

Second card was a Geforce 6800. Great card. I would still be using it but I got a great deal on a ATI X800XL so I took it.

I do not know what my first computer had I think it was a Diamond Stealth.

When I got a Pentium 4 computer, I initially had crappy onboard Intel i845 graphics, before the mobo died 2 weeks after purchase (defective capacitors apparently).
As a replacement, I got an Intel i850 chipset mobo, and it did not have integrated graphics. Therefore I purchased a 64MB DDR GeForce4 MX 440-8X graphics card.
Now, I have an AMD64-based PC with a 128MB GeForce FX 5900 (non-Ultra, non-XT) graphics card. It has made all the difference in the world compared to my MX440. Most of my games still work good, especially OpenGL games whih still work extremely well with this card.
I'm holding my money for the release of the GeForce 8 series.

ATI Rage 128 (I think that is the correct card not too sure it was a long time ago)
3dfx Voodoo 3 (Loved it, I still think the old voodoo's has the best quality of colour)
(I had two systems)
geforce 3 ti
geforce 4 MX
(Back to one system)
geforce FX 5500
Next update will be when the whole DX10 thing finally hits us.
