    Aye, but what's the "point?"

    Guru3d has shown that in every game except for Ghost Recon and Crysis (of course), there's hardly a reason to buy this over a HD 4850, especially since the 4850 is cheaper. :shadedshu

    Come on, nvidia, you can do better! Use that money you've been raking in for the past two years. :D

    They might be "well known" but I have never heard of them. It appears that Point Of View sells products in just about every country except the US.
