Graphics Upgrades for Every Budget
By Dave Spohn
It's always a challenge to keep up with the rapid pace of progress in graphics technology these days. Nvidia's GeForce GTX 280 has easily held the top spot for overall single-GPU performance since its release, but ATI got back in the race with their aggressively priced Radeon HD 4000 series. An assortment of dual-GPU cards have recently hit the market, such as the Radeon 4870 X2, to which Nvidia ultimately responded with the new GeForce GTX 295. As a result, there is a staggering amount of graphics processing power available for those who want it, but there is also an abundance of great cards for gamers that are keeping a close eye on their budget.
