I think the first game I played with hardware acceleration was Mechwarrior 2.
It came with my Matrox
Mystique. That card did not last long. I upgraded within three months to a Diamond Monster 3D.
Anybody remember SLIing Voodoo2s together? Those with an ATI card for 2D acceleration was like the ultimate graphics setup back in the day.
I also remember when I didn't have to sell a kidney to buy a high end graphics card...
