Nvidia launches new budget graphics cards - do you care?

http://www.bit-tech.net/blog/2009/10...dget-graphics/

After years (well, one at least) of Nvidia saying that it doesn't see the need in DirectX 10.1 because developers aren't demanding it and it has some DX10.1 features in its GT200 design anyway, it's finally made a DX10.1 GPU. However, it isn't a huge high-performance part to rival the HD 5870. It's a low-end part...

Those fans look like they'd be noisy so probs not even good for a media centre
My media centre is rather overpowered graphically with my 7800GTX from the time before my shiny GTX260 but I won't be swapping it out for one of these any time soon

i am tbh (if i didnt already have a few low power aTI cards)

would be great to power a multiple monitor workstation, however, to market them at gamers is incredibly irresponsible and tbh very close to libelous

I sometimes do pc builds for people who's pc might be stressed the most when playing sims 2, so budgt cards are always good for those sort of pc builds.

I'd care if they were passive tbh... they'd be great for the internet rig which only has to be up to UT2004 on medium. Noisy fan = FAIL.

EDIT: Colorful makes a passive G210. Ordered one right now, power consumption seems to be awesome.

I was listening to someone who was claiming their GT100 was a gamer card; I honestly wanted to kill myself.

I might care. I'm building my dad a new PC next year and it will need a budget (ie non gaming GPU). As long as it can happily decode video etc and it as the right price I may buy it.

They're pointless really since there are 9-series parts for the same money that just mop the floor with the new g/gt parts.

i don't think they'd actually speed up PhysX, rather make the more powerful GPU wait for it to calculate PhysX.

benchmarks have shown anything below 9600GT will slow down the main graphics when it's dedicated to PhysX.

i would care if i can make it as a hybrid display adaptor, and able to turn off main card. but with ATI 5870's 27w idle.......

that's a good point wu..

I'm glad someone has brought up the "Packed with 48 cores..." syndrome.. a new system builder might fall for this and look at gaming like it's camel balls

Generally speaking: Well someone has to care for entry level customers. Besides they have a pocket of the size of their brains. So I guess it fits.

Technically speaking: the product is a flaw and a comes with a falsified claim.

I think they are fail cards personally, they don't really fit anywhere in the market unless they were a good bit cheaper.
