    It would have been a nice accomplishment had this supported DX10. While I do applaud them or making >$50 graphics card, wont be useful except for a normal mundane computer. Surfing Internet, email, web browsing, word processing. Maybe to watch a movie. But that is about all.

    ok, but following that logic, since the 6200 uses the same NV43 core as the 6600, the 7200 may use the same G73 core as the 7600. For $10 more, I know what I would buy

    neither :laugh:

    Yeah, I wonder how this would compare with 7300gs? And is there a reason they are doing this with the 8300gs right around the corner?

    it isn't just about using the same core, the Leadtek 6200 on newegg for $40 unlocks almost 100% of the time(i've bought 10, and all 10 have unlocked), it is like the 9800SE and x800GTO2.

    the 7 series never unlocks, nvidia has learned their lesson.

    the 7100gs was sli compatible, so i assume this will be too

    they just don't use the sli bridge, they are so weak they don't need it

    This card overclocks quite well. I've sold my HD2900XT and replaced it with the cheapest card I could find until I get my next high end.

    I've overclocked the core from by 100MHz to to 550MHz. Thats a 22% increase. Will try 600MHz tomorrow.

    Now I'm getting around 25 fps on team fortress 2 @ 640x480 with all settings on low. oooohhhh yeaaahhhh. :D
