Yep, I had to decide (not really, just don't want to make the drive twice if I can help it) between watching the ENG-ICL game at Brit's yesterday or going to Microcenter tomorrow, both up in the cities (MSP). It's only a 90 minute drive, but it's boring and such a hassle.

Glad I chose the latter, the ENG game was atrocious and embarrassing. I only wanted 1 anyways to play around with and test out. So the 1 per (if that's true at the MSP Microcenter as well) is not a loss for me biggrin.gif.

For alot of people in the 200is price bracket it just boils down to thats all they want to spend period. They arent hardcore gamers. They dont want to hear just 30 to 40 more. They arent looking for the absolute best price to performance. Just the best for what they want to spend.

Alot of people don't understand this.

I can relate to this since I'm just like this when it comes to buying games. Don't give two hoots if it's game of the century or whatever, if it doesn't reach my preset target price I ain't buying it period.

I'm in the same boat. I would love to get a 1070/1080 but I can't justify spending that much money. $200 is my sweet spot, and I've never spent more than that on a video card.

That's a fair point but personally I will spring for the extra 30 bucks to get the 8 GB card. But the $200 card will perform just fine.

This thing could legitimately break sales records (and would if it said Nvidia on the box)...

You mention a good point about Nvidia being on the box, I have no knowledge of GPUs basically before the 300 series launched, how did the 970 really impact the market? On that note, do you really think AMD can pull off whatever a 970 pulled off (however it did, im not sure how) with the position its in right now in regards to brand and marketing? I ask cause well, I don't know much GPU history.

The 970 alone massively increased Nvidia's market share over the last couple years. Can AMD do the same with the 480? To be honest I don't know, because AMD does not have the market recognition that Nvidia does. One thing they do have going in their favor right now is that the card is really cheap and there is absolutely no competition for it in its segment. Couple that with the budding interest in VR and who knows what will happen?

There's one part of their strategy that seems off to me. They're targeting budget consumers...with VR? So people that'll drop 500-700 on a VR headset, but really need to be frugal on the graphics card?

well, to look at it another way, perhaps those who have just dropped $700 on a VR headset don't have much left over to spend on a video card?
