Ruby makes the card run fast and the heart run faster.

I too had one of these space heaters that could play games

I thinks it’s more like a hairdryer! They put out so much heat and were super loud.

I fondly remember my first flagship card. HIS X850XT Pe iceQ agp. Hopefully whoever I sold it to in russia had fun with it.

I always loved how they put cool graphics on the card.

Pun intended.

I had a X1800XT back in the day. Same cooler, same looks. My first ever ATI card, and also my first ever high-end card. Played the hell out of Oblivion back in those days.

I still remember all of the GPU's I've ever bought... going back more than 20yrs

Voodoo II... then another voodoo II so I could do the original SLI

Voodoo 3

Voodoo 5

3DFX go out of business, I was sad... nVidia buy the company and promise to support customers.... they lied and screwed us all over and refused to carry on releasing driver updates.

So I went ATI instead ever since, until AMD bought them...(this is where it gets a little fuzzy as I was upgrading my PC every few months and GPU's were cheap and I often bought used as others bought the latest and greatest stuff, so I was always 6-12 months behind the curve) I've had the 9700Pro which lasted for years. Then as a stop gap after a motherboard failure... bought a prebuilt with a crappy nvidia GTX 260 that had to last me a couple of years.

Then AMD 5770, and soon after added a 2nd 5770 for Xfire, after that a 280X 3GB, an RX580 and now a 5700XT

Aside from that few years from around 2002-2004 when I probably went through 4 different GPU's, 5 or 6 CPU's and constant ram and HDD capacity upgrades. I remember every single card I've ever bought

started with tnt2 for better features. had voodoo to play with. Glide went open source, bypassed the 256 texture limit, and 1024? on single v2. I didn't use it for gaming, had a mini pentium junk box for lan with the voodoo2. Radeon 9000 was the best bang4buck, held out for 9800pro, then 800xt, 1900 aiw, 4870, gtx 470, 290-390, and Vega 56. AMD cpu k6-2 - athlon - athlon xp - 64 -phenom2 - intel 4770 - Ryzen 1-3.

Here's my AIW X1900, I still use it as a backup card for testing and during upgrades.

Mines on a shelf. Good while it lasted, best dx9 card ever made. Went great in Opteron 175 dfi-nf4, audigy2zs, XP 64. Peak perf/$ era, could buy real high end at reasonable prices. Then everything went console port / crysis / bad AMD products / intel/nv shenanigans. Vista/dx10 was such a joke.

I found mine at memory express in 2006 for a ridiculously low $280CAD at the time - I think it was a pricing error. But I didn't trust the site at the time so I tried a price match from NCIX, where it was $650 and it got approved!

Haha, I also had a DFI lanparty nf4 along with an Opteron 140.

I just had a X1650 Pro from Sapphire

I upgraded from my Radeon X800 GTO to this. Unfortunately my X800 GTO was not unlockable to X850 XT specs

I had the AGP version.

Best ati card ever with the x1950xtx

Clever but not so clever design. It used to suck in fresh cool air from the back of your case, and blow it right inwards.
