The new midrange, ten cards around $200

The good news is you can currently get a whole lot of power for around the $200 mark. There is a veritable wealth of cards available around this price-point. While the last generation of video cards had a relatively weak mid-range compared to the top-end cards when it came down to game performance, nowadays it is a very different situation altogether. While last generation's 2600 XT's and Pro's, 8600 GT's and GTS's were largely limited by a 128-bit memory interface, the recently price-slashed HD 3870 and 8800 GT offer high-end power, at a mid-range price. Today's absolute slowest HD 3850 or 9600 GT demolish those old mid-range cards in the benchmarks. That old mid-range should fade from gamers' memories fast. The new mid-range is here, and today we will be checking it out.
