I realize this. Only about 10 "games" actually use it and 3 are substantially popular such as Batman AA or Metro 2033 or Mafia 2. But I already own a Gtx 460 sli OC 1gb so I see no point in upgrading gpu wise since they beat a Gtx 470 sli and 5970 (these were reviewed by tweaktown at 850core, mine is @ 875/1700 soon to be 900/1800 stable) so I'm not lacking graphics wise on a single 1920x 1080 Dell u2311h. But this is just for the ****s and giggles really. What else to upgrade if you know what I mean. SSD, Sli, IPS. So for $80 it's a nifty upgrade, besides maybe a sound card. But that's only a side view, it serves a dual purpose. My mother will primarly use it and such a low power card would fit the bill best really.
