Which hardware, software made a big impression on you during your life's history of trying to be one with computers? One thing I particularly remember is bying the Diamond Monster 3D video accelaration card with a whopping 4mb of memory. There were only 2 games that had it supported by software at the time (Quake and Tombraider). BUT boy, did a 3D card make a difference. I can still remember sitting behind the computer thinking for hours, this looks SOOOOooo good. Also there was a dramatic increase in speed (which i needed since i had a cyrix processor at the time). I never had that moment of course with any other videocard, because it was a revolutionary moment for me, and everything that came after that was merely incremental in improvement, instead of a giant leap. http://www.geek.com/gaming/gamerevs/video/monster.htm You had to connect the video accelerator card to your proper video card via a cable on the outside...haha...good old days...
