Default GeForce 8400GS priced at $45 on June 19 !!

The Tech Report - Sub-$50 GeForce 8 coming in three weeks

The only difference between 8400GS and 8500GT is that 8400GS has 64-bit interface, instead of 128-bit. All the other spec is exactly the same.

The card will hit stores on June 19, and it will be priced at $45 only. In my opinion this would be the best performance/price for people who are not heavy-gamers

Thats for standard vista surfing and video watching. That thing is probably about as powerful as a 7300LE.

8400GS will replace 7300GS, but there is no doubt that it will destroy 7300GS in terms of performance.

Yes this video card can play oblivion, but only in low/medium settings

The 6600GT is a better card to hold you over..they can be hard for around that price and it should beat this card quite easily.
