Im glad they are still supporting AGP. Im also glad that DAaMit is continuing its multitude of cards for every segment of the pc industry. Further, Sapphire and Powercolor make some great cards.

Because it's cheap and slightly effective for people who want that extra performance boost for less than $450 or so.

X2000 Series? already?
I hope we start to see 1200mhz memory clocks and 750mhz core clocks.
Those GDDR4 memory modules should be pretty damn nice too :pimp:
