    dude you forget...128bit are cheap to produce and decent enough for most games. sure u wont be playing fear on ultra high settings but it will run better then a 9x00 card. not to mention all those who are stuck with onboard and the ati200/x300. hell i would buy one of these to replace my 9600...

    yeah, you got a point there. I'd just like to see some more entry/mid-range cards come out that are 256 bit like the X800 GTO. Also, these cards coming out have DDR2 RAM vs DDR3. It just seems that for the same price people could get a much better card online, but these "new" cards cost just as much and aren't as advanced, although they've managed to raise the core clock. It seems like since ATi and nVidia reached the X1950XTX and 7950GXT (or whatever the nomenclature is) that they aren't focused on midrange for the moment. Have to wait and see what they offer next that is affordable to most of us :eek:
