Quake 2, and I remember sitting around the monitor with friends, and saying "this is the future of gaming, I cant imagine games ever looking better than this!".

The traps in Prince of Persia sounded wicked with that! :)

 

Wolfenstien 3D with a sound card.. "Coming to get you" scared the **** out of me the first time I heard it!

Just recollected i also bought Covox for some MechWarrior game. I had to be serious  ;-) 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Covox_Speech_Thing

It was the time of 386DX40 with 2MB of RAM. I remember 2MB wasnt enough to run Comanche so we, with friend, were just starting it to watch tittle screen lol. At the time i also had some Trident VGA and 50MB Quantum HDD installed. Years later, the disc wasnt large enough to install Daggerfall so i bought bigger one for that game.

A Voodoo for Quake 1. I remember the old Voodoo ad's they were in pretty bad taste. One was of a car accident and showed a mnagled body with the Voodoo guy asking the cop whether eyeballs rolled or bounced when they were knocked out of a skull

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. My computer couldn't run it so when we were kids my friend and I would go to the local university, even though we weren't students, and install it in thier computer labs to play and play with each other lol. Eventually I got a better card so I could play it on my computer from home. It only needed 32mb of VRAM and my computer only had 16 lol.

I never had one game I bought video card for.  

It have not bad resistance to getting worse performance / having to cut on details / avoiding games that are not playable for me as hardware getting older.

After some time when I can't stand it anymore - I just buy new / uppgrade.  

 

There was no one game that I was doing it for I think, at least I can't get any title out of my head. 

I think that games I most craved for usually did not have big hardware requirements.

Some type of Nvidia card, can't remember which, to play the original Neverwinter Nights. It chugged along so terribly and I wanted to play it so badly I scrounged up, begged, pleaded, and finally got a new GFX card and it ran much much better.

 

Great topic, BTW!

+500KB for Settlers and The Black Eye @Amiga.
And I bought a Competition Pro, because Quickshot sucked.. though they rocked at Decathlon and Winter Games.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II  I bought a Voodoo3 for it; well I actually got the card more for Rogue Squadron, but it sure helped.

That was mine also. Oh man, I forgot all about the Monster card (3DFX Chipset), back when Creative Labs made video cards. I was so excited to get it. Oh wait, was probably the Monster II Card. I think the first game I tried out the card was Quake 2 and Half-life.

 

Man, that really opened up video games for me. The first time that I saw Glide (3DFX openGL drivers) was a big WOW factor for me.

Had accellerated 2d (YES: 2d) back in the windows 386/3.0/3.1 and 3.11 for workgroups era.

The first card I bought specifically for a game (replacing my ATI Rage Pro) was a dual Voodoo2 SLI pack. That particular 3D-fx solution (SLI: Scan line interleave) kept me from ever buying a Geforce1 because it just outperformed the nVidia upcomer :-)

The game: Half-life OP4 and of course Counter Strike beta 0.65

 

We dont need casuals in our games!!! Errm... Well we DO need casuals to fund and populate our games - But the games should be all about "hardcore" because: We dont need casuals in our games!!!
