And if I'm just not getting something, sorry I sound stupid. :[
It's made for the low to mid-end market, and notebooks.
Basically for people who don't need a huge amount of GPU power, but powerful enough to be useful for things like HD video playback.
It will increase the capabilities of low-end PC's, but it's not meant to replace high-end discrete graphics cards

Yeah we don't change them every time. It's just an excel copy/paste.

Don't mean to revive this bad boy (though it's a great thread)

Can anyone tell me off the top of their heads what's the best card I can get with a 300-400 watt PSU?

Depends on the quality of the PSU, if it's 400W and really good quality, then a GTX260, if it's Dell-quality then I would barely recommend a 9800GT.
