12 MB of ram, man those were the days.

Remember when people were fighting over who's best, Voodoo or RIVA TNT?

We all remember! ;) I had a TNT card and a friend had a Voodoo II card.
With some settings, I could beat him in quality and fps in the QIII demo. :)
I guess a TNT2 Ultra could beat two Voodoo II in SLI, after 1998 nVidia rocked (GeForce 256 SDR/DDR 1999).

Now I have a retro machine with a TNT and 2 x Voodoo II :)

"So Real It Must Be Righteous"

I guess I wasn't righteous enough to afford more than 8MB on mine at the time. Plugged into some Matrox Millennium II piece of junk that could barely reach 800x600 screen size properly without causing the monitor to make a horrible high-pitched noise.
Gimme the good old days when a pair of
boobs were a couple of dumb guys.

But today water cooling and annoying RGB lights are almost standard. ;-)
