    would prob have to be my radeon 5750 as it gave me the best performance for the longest time, think I managed about 4 years out of that one ;)

    It would have to be my current Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970.

    Although I still have a soft spot for my Sapphire HD 4830 512mb and my Sapphire HD6950 w/flash to 6970 bios.

    XFX 6970. I haven't owned many GPUs before (literally only one), but I got this for £50. It plays what I need it play without getting hot (MOBAs and Minecraft) and it is not really noticeable even when playing something hard hitting.

    The KFA2 GTX 470 that I run has taken a lot of punishment from me, being run at 100% load for months on end (F@H) and yet it still manages to keep up to a degree with games of late

    I love gaming with my 8800GTX back in the days when the last really breakthrough in terms of graphics was launched, Crysis 1. This was in 2007, almost 10 years ago. Consoles are to blame, of course...

    Cheers

    My Voodoo 3 3000 will always have a place in my heart, but my iChill X4 GTX 1080 is just mindblowing.
