My System Specs

Default The Collection

I was doing a bit of moving things around earlier, so I decided to get the boys out for a group photo, with a few of my vintage cards tossed in for good measure .



From left to right:
Row 1: ATI Rage II, GeForce 256 VIVO, Sapphire Radeon 9600 256MB (passive card with a cardboard shroud made from a granola bar box).
Row 2: MSI GeForce 4 Ti4400 128MB, BFG GeForce 6800GT 256MB, ATI Radeon HD 3470 (never used).
Row 3: EVGA GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB, EVGA GeForce GTX 260 216SP 65nm, the fan shroud I removed from my GTX 460's cooler.
Row 4: MSI TwinFrozr GeForce GTX 260 55nm, XFX Radeon HD 5870, EVGA GeForce GTX 460 768MB.

Nice pic, but that video card shroud doesn't count ;) Getting another 460 is the solution.

Also, I had to do a double take on the shrouldess 460. Thought you managed to squish a MSI Cyclone's heatpipes and shrink the entire thing. :P

No. The central section of the Cyclone heatsink is slightly larger and doesn't have a flattened bottom edge like the reference cooler. The other two heatsink sections are larger and have more fins with a denser spacing.

This is just what I had on hand. I probably have a bunch of other old cards buried away in various places, though I don't think I have any ISA cards left...

Heres most of the cards i have lying around, many went to family members though so i don't have any pics.

Should be able to tell what most of these are, had a Voodoo Banshee around somewhere at one time, also a Radeon 8500 LE in my moms old computer that i can remember, might be several others over time, it's hard to recall. Currently using a Radeon 4870 1 GB.
