Poll: The sweet spot for desktop graphics cards

— 5:06 PM on September 14, 2006

In our latest weekly poll, we're quizzing you about what you think is the most attractive price segment for today's desktop graphics cards. With the recent introduction of Nvidia's GeForce 7900 GS and ATI's Radeon X1900 XT 256MB, the $199-299 arena seems to be home to some of the nicest deals out there. However, some of the more spartan gamers among us may feel more comfortable dipping closer to $150, while others might believe in going all-out and would take no less than one (or even two) of Nvidia's $500-600 GeForce 7950 GX2s. Vote and let us know where you think the sweet spot is.

Last week's poll tackled Windows Vista as we asked if you were planning to upgrade to the upcoming operating system after its release next January. Less than a third of those who voted (27%) plan to make the jump, while another 27% are still undecided. However, the majority (41%) will not be hopping onto the Vista bandwagon on release day and might instead take a wait-and-see approach to upgrading. 5% of those polled won't be giving Microsoft their hard-earned cash because they don't run Windows in the first place.
