just look around this site to see people talking about changing video cards out like they were changing socks or something lol. but i agree there are somewhat reasonable choices that can be found out there if you research it well and shop wisely.
but all the $500+ cards out there are just $250 cards they are overcharging us for when you think about the cost of manufacturing them is not that high.
Your reading with PC enthusiast. This market is very small. Most PCs get the standered small onboard video chipset. This is why Intel owns the market with video cards. They do not sell very many 500 dollar cards, what they sell the most of is the cheap 100USD card. Those are there money makers. The 500USD cards are more than show to the public of who makes the best of the best when no one really buys them. The GPUs used for them are the best of the wafer the center. The outer edges not as good are sold off for cheaper. The engineer cost is very very high. Just think 100 engineers at 100 grand a year is 10,000,000 alone in salary. This doesn't include all of the other things it takes before the release.
