Bah, I'm still using my Old Old Old Old PC with my ATI Mach64 in it.
It's very good for old DOS games. Who needs Need For Speed when you've got Test Drive? Or Warcraft3 when you've got the original Command and Conquer and Dune2?

We actually had a ATI VGA Wonder back in '89. It has a whopping 256k of video memory. Complemented the 386 with 1mb pretty well I guess. The Mach64 is a PCI card that if I remember correctly, came right before the original 3D Rage.

It's green. My looks just like this except that half the memory sockets are empty since it's only got 512KB memory.

Don't make me pull out my Herc mono adapter on you (strange thing is that the plain old dumb LPT port on it actually makes my inkjet print faster than the onboard ECP port in the computer its in ). It's actually a relatively recent one - can't find the really old IBM mono card...

Yep, pretty much unfortunately.

Not quite sure what they are, but I found some video cards which were used for PS1 development I'm told, I'll need to get some pics as they are *massive*. The company just recently moved offices so I've had to sort all the old systems crap which has been building up for years, some really interesting looking graphics card! The Hercules Stingray 3D is another one that caught my eye, massive PCB with an add on board as well. Need to get some pics on Monday, it's quite impressive how much graphics cards have , well and most PC components have moved on since then.

Here's a question for anyone who knows about video cards.

Assuming that heat generation and power supply wasn't a problem, how far would you have to overclock an old Mach 64 to make it as fast as a 9800 Pro?

Not possible since the Mach64 has no 3D capabilities whatsoever.

Good ol' Mach 64. I went rumaging through my old hardware boxes and found a Mach 64 with 1 MB VRAM. Cost an arm and a leg back then

Pretty green PCB with the ability to expand up to 2 MB's of VRAM! By today's standards, if you were to buy the extra MB of VRAM for that card, you could have purchased a brand new Opteron 246.

Gotta admit though... playing Duke Nukem 3D on an old 486/66 @ 640x480 SVGA mode was mind-blowing back then

Remember? I'm still using it in one of my computers. And it's SLI successor is sitting in my computer right now...
