With the recent launches of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti and the HD 6950 1GB cards the so-called “Sweet Spot” of the high-end video card market has changed again.  The video card market has always been defined by the highest end cards such as the GeForce GTX 580 and HD 6970 and a mainstream of around $200 and below. But there is a middle ground for those wanting high performance and pricing... continued.

With the recent launch of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX560 card, the mainstream market has been redefined. AMD launched the HD 6870 late last year in October aimed squarely at the $250 price point. NVIDIA countered this with their GeForce GTX 460 lowering the price to compete but their true solution to the HD 6870 didn’t launch till January of this year.Of course, the two competing companies are all about... continued.

Small, inexpensive computers have become the new “In” thing with computer users. For most computer users the high-end desktop with up to four graphics cards, a 6-core Intel CPU and a X58 motherboard is overkill. In this day and age where the person plays casual games like Farmville on Facebook or Mafia Wars, surfs the Internet, works on Office and watches TV doesn’t need that kind of power.A... continued.

The computer has many components including the CPU, the motherboard, the video card and the memory but it can’t operate without one thing, the Power Supply Unit. Without power the computer becomes a case with electronics inside it. One of the main considerations of a computerhas to be an adequate power supply without which the computer cannot operate no matter how fast or powerful the video card(... continued.

The video card market has changed again, for the better. NVIDIA has launched the GTX560 Ti which is a superior product against the HD 6870 but is slightly higher in price than that card. AMD has responded by launching the HD 6950 1GB card to compete against it at a slightly higher price point than the GTX560 Ti. A competitive landscape for this price point is good for the consumer and keeps both... continued.
