Yeah me too. Sadly, just a fraction on the people know what they buy. How many people have you met shell shocked when they heard amd even existed? A large portion of buyers just go for what they see higher priced (good for showing off) or what they see (like publicity etc). Heck last week I was looking at a 5770 in a pc store and guess what, the salesman recommended me a 9500gt over it, saying "its nvidia chap, the best on the market, that ati can't get even close to it". Now we all here surely know what BS of a card the 9500 is.
