What was the first graphics card you ever got for a PC?
While technically my dad got it and it installed it. Our Emachines in 2003 did not have a graphics card, or if it did it a was simple integrated thing. We had the Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King game in Christmas 2003 for my older brother. The game would not run without a graphics card so, my dad went out and got a cheap ATI Radeon 9200 SE. It only had 128mb of memory and ran at 400 MHz (If my googeling is correct). I ran a ton of different games on it all at low settings of course. Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, Rome:Total War, Age of Mythology, Age of Empires III, Empire Earth 1-2, Medal of Honor Allied Assault- Pacific Assault. I am surprised it handled all the games it did.
The one game that brought that computer to its knees, well at least made it slow was Sim 2, it had a very tough time running on it. Also Sim City 4 took awhile to load when you zoomed in on a city.
