Quake 1, the first 3D hardware accelerated game. I bought a Monster 3D (voodoo 1 chip).

First video card I ever "bought" was an ATI Radeon 9600XT which I stuck in a stock Sony Vaio.  I just wanted some better framerates in the games I played, so I didn't purchase it for a specific game.  I will say that it made EverQuest a heck of a lot more playable.  I stuck the same card into my first gaming PC which I built for EQ2, so I guess we'll say I bought it for EQ2.

Voodoo 3 to run Freespace.

 

There is NO miracle patch.

95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

Hope is not a stategy.

I bought a Diamond Monster  II 12mb (was a lot of money at the time too) specifically for Quake 2. I played it professionally and if you didn't have a 3d video card, you were at a serious disadvantage.

To spice things up ill ask what game did you buy your first sound car for. For me it was original Sound Blaster for Battle Isle. Next i bought Monster Sound 3d for Unreal 1. That card costed me fucking pile of money but i never regreted it hehe. Its 3d sound on headphones was unmatched. I have a feeling it could compete with todays x-fi's and such.

I still have never bought a sound card or had 5.1 sound.

Let's build the ultimate MMO 1 feature at a time

yeah, I wouldn't have known except I called tech support and they gave me a list of the video cards to purchase, and I went with one of the mid-range ones and had decent performance.  (except for that famous lag spike you'd get when the zerg would suddenly get on grid or something, but on the plus side, you always knew it was coming)

I think it was an early Geforce card,  but my gateway PC with ME (anyone remember that shit?) wouldn't run a newly released Neverwinter Nights (Bioware) so I had to buy a new card.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

10/01/12 2:22:55 PM#32

I think I bought a card for Myst, on Windows 3.1. I'm not sure I needed the card, but I wanted to upgrade something. I think my next significant video card purchase was a Diamond something for one of the MechWarrior games. I never did buy a Voodoo type card and I think my next significant purchase after that was for WoW. Between MW and WoW, I was doing mostly programming and web development instead of playing games, so I didn't pay that much attention to the cards I was buying.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Voodoo3 2000 PCI!

I bought it for the Star Wars Pod Racing game, back in 1998(?). If memory serves me correctly,  that video card lasted me until 2004; it even played Final Fantasy XI flawlessly.

I bought my first computer in 1998 to play Ultima Online after a friend of mine got me hooked on it.  I had some sort of ATI graphics card, don't remember what it was.
