I don't think I can truly remember all of mine;

PowerVR
"some other" 3DFX card I can't remember!
3DFX Voodoo 2
.. }
.. } - can't remember these
.. }
Geforce 2 TI/64MB (only recently stopped using this on one machine, as
the fan totally seized and the card burnt out)
Geforce 6200TC PCI-E - what a crap card!
Geforce 6600GT

And hopefully after christmas I may upgrade to a 6800GT or 7800GTX if I
can afford it...

Diamond Stealth 64 VLB
Diamond Stealth 3D (S3 Virge 3D Decelerator)
Diamond Monster 3D 2 (Voodoo2)
3dfx Voodoo3 2000 PCI
Geforce2 GTS (Can't remember the brand)
LeadTek Geforce3 TDH
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (Had to switch to ATI for R300)
ATI Radeon X1800XT (Couldn't turn this one down either)

From VLB to PCI - AGP - PCI-E. ISA vid cards were around when I first got
into computers, but I went for the more powerful (relatively speaking) Vesa
Local Bus card.

I had the following

ATI All In Wonder (first card in my first PC bought approx 1995)
TNT 2 M64 (Sparkle)
GeForce FX5200 (best waste of money ever)
GeForce FX5900 (great card, damage it tryin to rmeove the cooler)
GeForce FX6600 (bought to repalce the damaged 5900, should have got a
6600GT)
GeForce 6800GT (Leadtek - died after 3 days. Bought this to replace the
under-performing 6600)
GeForce 6800GT (Leadtek - died after 4 weeks)
GeForce 6800GT (Inno3D- caught fire after 2 weeks)
GeForce 7800 GT OC (BFG. The Inno3D 3800GT card cost so much, AGP card
prices rocketed, that when I got a refund for it I had enough money to get
this 7800GT and a PCIe motherboard)

The 6800 GT fiasco was the worse moment in my personal graphics card
history.
