After a brief reprieve, our weekly poll returns with a vengeance. With our review of AMD's new Radeon 6850 and 6870 graphics cards hitting on Monday, we're curious what you think of the options available in the middle of the graphics market. This segment has traditionally been home to some of the best values around—the sweet spot, if you will. The question, of course, is which mid-range graphics card is the sweetest? You can cast your vote over on the right column on the front page or after clicking on the comment link below.
In our last poll, we asked about your most anticipated PC game of the holiday season. 23% of you are most looking forward to Fallout: New Vegas, which has since been released. Call of Duty: Black Ops came in a distant second place with 12% of the vote, while the next World of Warcraft expansion garnered a 10% share. Behind those titles, 4% are eager to play Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and another 4% can't wait for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, myself included. Fewer are interested in Medal of Honor, Trackmania, and upcoming Lost Planet and James Bond titles, while 5% don't play games at all. The majority (32%) chose the "other" option, but judging by the comments, most seem to be waiting for games that aren't due out until next year.
