So from what I understand.... these cards don't use GDDR3.... they use actual DDR3 like how DDR2 is used on older videocards?

I don't get the adding of "FTW" to a lowed card. But these cards are perfectly suited for media centers PC's.

They make the most overprice and poor built cards sometimes.

I am interested in getting one, best buy has them listed now. However the only one(s) which seem worthy to get one is the 220 series, they have more ram, faster core and clocks and more bandwidth and with gddr3 or ddr2 memory. So i guess when i get my secondary rig, i will see what best buy has at the store.

Honestly i think these cards are gonna sell because of marketing. Lotta people buy the Nvidia brand name because they know its good but these cards are very misleading and i feel they will trick alotta non-tech savvy customers into buying them when the 9800 and 4850 are better.
