    Just one, and that was only two months ago: a GTX 980 Ti to upgrade my GTX 660 Ti. I sold the latter on eBay.
    So...an average of 1 new graphics card per month? :eek: Damn, and I thought console players were talking rubbish when they said you have to upgrade PCs every month!

    In the last 2 years just 2: A 750Ti about 9 months ago. My 5870 was just about seeing me through (haven't been gaming as much until recently). I needed a DisplayPort 1.2 port for my 4k screen (needed for work more than gaming) and wanted a 980Ti so the 750ti was a stop-gap upgrade until it was released :) and last month a Inno3d 980Ti Hybrid

    I'm still using two 7950 in crossfire since 2012. I only tend to upgrade when I cannot play a game I really like smoothly and so far things haven't been too bad, but I'm still very interested in having something new to play with. I can see a gtx 980/Ti on the horizon.

    In the past 12 months:

    VTX3D HD 7850 (sold)
    Asus R9 280X (artifacted, returned)
    PowerColor R9 290X (changed mind, returned)
    MSI R9 280X (sold)
    MSI GTX 970 (coil while, returned)
    MSI GTX 970 (coil while, returned)
    Asus R9 270 (sold)
    MSI GTX 460 (DoA, returned)
    OCUK GTX 970 (coil while, returned)
    Galax GTX 970 (coil while, returned)
    MSI R9 290 (artifacted, returned)
    MSI GTX 570 (using right now)
    Asus R9 280X (DoA, returned)
    Palit GTX 980 (sold)
    Sapphire R9 290X (changed mind, returned)
    Palit GTX 980 (Elpida memory, returned)
    EVGA GTX 960 (sold)

    Before that I spent a year with the 7850 and before that four years with a 4870. Just can't find a card that I'm happy with now. The MSI 280X was probably my favourite of the bunch, but I fell for the 970 hype. :rolleyes:

    In the last 2 years?

    In my primary PC it is a 7970 only :( I wish I could upgrade as the small visual improvement over the PS4 in GTAV isn't worth the ability it play it lying in bed which I can do on the PS4.

    In my messing around PC though... In no particular order
    5770 Single slot
    9600GT single slot
