    Really, a GT430 is more capable than any console. When you are playing a game in DX9, with low-medium detail levels, at 720p resolution, you don't really need a powerful card...

    Nope, look a little bit higher in the picture, it says 6990D2. It really is a lame naming scheme, but people need to do their research before buying and it won't be a problem.

    They should just call it HybridX Crossfire, lol!
    One thing you got to hate in PC marketing: "X"!:slap:

    Anyway, back to the nonsense; @amd: trolling & inciting geek-rage is not allowed on TPU!

    So you rate gaming grade as being able to play poorly coded games or games optimized for the competitor's GPU?
