Bit Tech takes six of today's performance mainstream graphics cards and put them through a gauntlet of tests to work out where the best value for money lies. They come out with a number of interesting findings, but will they answer all of our questions, or create more?
"There are a lot of great products in the performance mainstream sector that all appear to hit price points that are so finely balanced that it’s hard to quantify which is better value for money. Indeed, it was one thing that cropped up during my initial GeForce 9600 GT testing and it was what prompted me to write this article.
Could it be that there are maybe too many good products in this segment? On one front, this is obviously a good thing for the consumer, but has it got to the stage where the consumer is actually left in uncertain waters because there is no definitive answer to the ‘what graphics card should I buy?’ question."
