What's the best Videocard you've ever owned?

My old gtx 285. It was put in my hackintosh/Windows 7 dual boot (I'm a PC guy, but I edit video and this was built when Final Cut Pro was still vastly superior to Premiere) and it never once gave me any grief on either side. I used it up until a month ago, and even then while I'd have to keep new games at 720p and medium settings to keep 60 fps, it would often hit 90c and still keep trucking. Actually, now that my PS2's controller ports are busted, it was technically the most reliable system I ever had.

My 6200 for AGP lasted me 2004-2010, and it ran everything. I retired it to a 360 and laptop with IGP.

I have an old 8800GTS collecting dust and my current dedicated gaming PC has a 560Ti.

The 8800 was probably "the best" but I barely used it for gaming at the time. I think Neverwinter Nights 2 was the only game I ever threw at it (because my 7600 was to crappy to run it).

ATI Radeon X850XT

I just started playing World of Warcraft and wanted it to be flawless. After trying to clock my Radeon 9800 pro to an XT and screwing it up, I bit the bullet and bought an X850XT for $450. It ran like a dream up until I had to get Shader Model 3.

GT 450 :D

Surprised it can still newer games like Assassins Creed 4. I have Bioshock Infinite too and havent played it but hopefully it runs well enough because i dont want to upgrade at the moment as im saving for PS4.

Had a GTX 550ti for a while. Gave it to a friend and they can still play most new games on at least medium settings.

My GTX 570 was a great card, so was my 8800GTX. But so is my r9 290, especially considering it didn't even cost more than a $100 than the 570 did at their respective times of purchase.

That goes without saying. Foxconn was sent directly from God to us, so were only talking about cards made by mortals

The best card I ever owned was my GTX 460. I actually had two of them in SLI, but even one still holds up today and probably will for a while. If I hadn't sold my desktop computer I'd still be running these cards. I'm on a laptop with a GTX 675MX, which gives me comparable performance so far.
