Cheaper video cards sign now

A lot of the newer games are becoming more demanding when it comes to computer specs. I had just purchased an ati 9800 pro 128mb thinking it was all I am gonna need. Boy was I wrong. I loaded up BF1942, tried to play with all my graphics set on High. My fps was at a point so low that I couldnt even begin to play. So I try medium graphics. Good, much smoother, but Ill still get the occasional insane drop of fps. So now I try to play UT2k4. I think Im scarred for life. 15fps. I understand that I should know my computer limitations but if I want to play smoothly consistently in this game, then I might as well play in a 1 person server with nothing to do.

How many people are really going to pay 50\% of what they payed for their computer, on a graphics card just so they can play games smoother? I sure wont be able to, but if I, and other gamers, waited a year for the prices to drop on the newest graphics cards, then it will surely be obsolete by then, and we will have missed out on all the hype and excitement of playing their games on the best video card currently. I shudder to think of what the video games of the future will need to run smoothly.

The ATi x800 and NVIDIA geforce 6800 are more than $400. This is easily more than half the price of my computer. No, my computer is not a piece of trash. But if I keep buying obsolete computer parts because they are all I can afford, and being unable to play the newest, greatest games, then yes, I guess you could call it a dump.

So here I ask, that we drop the prices on new hardware. I know, more money is made per card at their current prices. But how many people are willing to empty their wallets when the prices are this high? Think, a little people paying more, or a lot of people paying less? Sounds like a good way to compensate. Many more people will be encouraged to buy the video cards because they are cheaper and more affordable now, while only some people will want to pay a boatload to keep their computer up-to-date when they know very well that another upgrade is coming very soon.

Please lower the prices. The whole community will be very glad, Im sure.

    Way too expensive, I can't play any new games because all the video cards are an arm and leg a piece, only to be obsolete in four days.

    Ofc prices of the new models of graphic cards are too expensive, people can't afford it, when they're too young they can't take this money 400$(370) to buy good hardware and to be able to play the most exciting videogames that are on sale. For adults it i
