Welcome to mine personal graphic cards online museum (3rd incarnation). These pages reflects mine personal collection of graphic cards. I've started collecting em some years ago, because i like collecting old junk :-) , i'm probably geek and internet is filled with CPU webs, but its hard find any about graphic cards. So i decided to make one. I started on Phprs engine and been using it few years, but with increasing numbers of cards, i needed better system with better searching features. Well this one isn't i hoped for, but its still better than old pages.

So here you can find tons of photos of old cards and some basic info about them. I'm trying also get bios from working cards. But keep in mind, that i'm using dumpbios NSSI dos utility, so better don't try to flash em to your card - seems to me like a fastest way to hell for your card. Bioses are there only for educational purposes - i'm often checking them for bios compiling date and card name. Also i'm doing some basic benchmarks, so if you wanna know which card would be best for your nostalgic old DOS gaming PC, head there.

On this site you'll find also collections of Palcal and Zaatharen - they are also card collectors from Czech Republic same as me. Newest collector on site is Pirx from Germany.

If you wanna help, i'd always like to have more informations about cards. Under each article is comment option. Feel free to use them, if you know any missing information, you found nice article about card or you think that i have any info wrong (memory size is often hard to guess for me).

IF YOU LOOKING FOR DRIVERS, SORRY NO DRIVERS HERE
For drivers go to www.driverzone.com or www.vogonsdrivers.com

PS: as you already must noticed, i'm not from native english country, so sorry for mine english.

Hey Vlask,

I justed want to thank you for doing such a great job with your VGA- museum. I'm building oldie-PC's as a hobby and your site is a really fine knowledgebase for older VGA-cards.
I've got a few cards myself and I know it's a lot of work to catalogue them, take pictures, get mad, take pictures again, etc. ;-) .

I'm doing a little FB-group about retro- computers (about 1992 - 2002, not to retro) and I'll set a link to your site, because it has much more information as I could give.
At the moment I'm building a slot A- system with a 1GHz Orion on a Epox EP-7KXA. If you like, you could visit us there: facebook.com/.../Altsilizium.
The site has a lot of pics, and we got 50 nice members from different countries.

Best wishes & keep up the good work!
Jochen

Nice facebook site, but mostly in Deutsch and that's not language i remembered most from school even through i was learning it 9 years... :-*

Btw why you building so many retro PC? For sale? If i wanted retro PC, it would be only for gaming and for that i could imagine only one PC for DOS (486 like) and one for W98 games....

Will do continue in maintaining site, too bad that Palcal and Pirx don't have time lately for adding their cards. Palcal told me, that he have few hundreds more cards to add on site. Let's hope that he finish rebuilding his home soon and will have more free time - he has always most interesting cards.

Also wanted to add graphs like in benchmarks links showing fillrate and similar info about all cards, but need to find and pay first good php developer (connecting database isn't so easy as i hoped it would be).
