I have a few more than you do. I'll leave it at that. I already know I have a problem.

I have enough to build 45 more systems... is that too many?

Not unless you also have the rest of the parts to build 45 more systems.

I have well over 500. I stopped counting at around 200 😀 I have 11 comic book storage boxes full (those boxes are strong enough to stand on), and shelves of boxed cards.

See my graphics card database at www.gpuzoo.com
Constantly being worked on. Feel free to message me with any corrections or details of cards you would like me to research and add.

Something like 10 Video cards under the same definition as VDU, not necessarily graphics cards because a couple of them are mono text. Probably 20+ "VGA" cards capable of VGA and 30 or so GPUs capable of 3D acceleration (of which 4 or 5 are not also VGA cards because they don't have 2D output)

Let's see what I remember
2xMDA IBM with parallel.
1x IBM CGA
1xHerc/mono mini
1x Graphics wonder,
1x offbrand EGA
1x MDA/CGA/EGA 2nd tier manufacturer not recalling.
1x EGA Wonder
Okay that's only 8 I guess, maybe more around.

1x VGA wonder
2x some oak/WD crap
4-6 TVGA8900
2x TVGA9000
1x Mach 32
1x Mach 64
3x GL5429
1xGL5434
1xGL5430 PCI
2 x TGUI 9680
2x basic trio
thinking there's another 2 PCI 2D one or two MB that aren't S3, CL or Trident but can't bring them to mind.

Then 3D
Virge GX 4MB
2x Riva128
2xRage II crappy
2 or 3 Rage II okay-er, pluses or C rev.
2 Rage XC/XL
2 rage pro
1 Permedia 2
1 Number 9 revolution IV
1 Rendition verite
1 i740
3 SiS 6326
3 Rage 128
2 Power VR 3dx Apocalypse (no 2D)
2 V2 12MB
1 voodoo banshee
1 v3 PCI
2 TNT2
2 riva tnt
1 GF1 ??
2 GF2MX400
2 GF3
2 GF4 TI4200
2x Radeon 7000ish
1x Radeon 7500
Hiding on me, not recently confirmed are some dualhead matrox g200?? ti4600 which I think had issues, 2 V3 3000 AGP, 1 V3 PCI, 1 Diamond Monster 3DII 8MB, possibly a TTR-II, GF8800
2x Rad 8500
2x 9000 series
2x 9600 series
3x GF6200 PCI
1x 7400GT PCIe
1x7600
1x7900GS
1x9400GT
3x9600GT
1x gt280 in pieces, might try reflow
3x x300/600 series
1x HD2600
2x HD3450
1x HD4650
2x HD4870
1x5830
2x5850
2x6450
2x6850
3?x 6870
SiS Xabre 200
SiS 315
and some newer stuff I dunno.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

Where do you store all this? I write from an 80 sqm apartment in Hong Kong. The struggle to store (and hide) is a constant concern 😜

Probably hundreds - but no idea really 🤣

30 or so are boxed. The rest are bare cards (ISA, VLB, PCI, AGP, PCI-e) and 99% should be in working condition.

I have around 45 retro display cards from before 2010 or so. Nowadays I keep a spreadsheet list of all my retro junk after I bought a Geforce 7800 GT and later realized that I already had one in storage 😁 Well I guess redundancy is good.

About 20 to 25 from old ISA to PCI-E. Should make a list sometime.
When does this get pathological? Does feel as too many already...

Seriously, what is it that makes one collecting (stop: I'm not collecting, am I? These little guys found their way to me on their own. I swear.) way too much of this stuff? Nostalgia, collecting mania, compulsive hoarding, because you can...?
What do you (we) do with all that? Use it regularly or at least from time to time or just store it in some old boxes on a dark shelv? What is the sense behind that?

I have a collection of ISA and VLB cards. But I like all the rest too as VGA cards don't take much space. So I don't care how many I've got. I got more problems with AT/ATX cases and full computers and also CRT monitors that take a lot of space...

Truth be told I don't use anything much...
