Fact is that not everybody can spend more than a 100 USD on a graphics cards to play games. A lot, seriously a LOT of people will play games at 1024×768 or 1280×1024 while refusing to spend more than 100 bucks. Products like these simply offer good value.
With this product Galaxy definitely set a new standard in the budget range of products though. Never have I seen a product in this price-category so pimped up. Excellent clocks, good overclockability, sound and excellent PCB design.
