it outperformed the X300, which I'd say it was designed to compete with (although it wouldn't be hard to)

I suppose you could pose the same 'whyd they make it' to the X600 from ATI

Well yeah you can lol.

I do see that they are good for what they are meant to be, a cheap non hardcore gaming card for medium settings. But if you don't game, why not get intergrated or a cheap pci? Or even a 4mb one for £1 at my local pc shop lol.

well on top of that, Tomshardware is the last place I'd go for real thorough reviews honestly.

They shouldnt even make a card that doesnt fully utilize DX9 .
They need to set some standards and live by them

Whats wrong with Toms Hardware? I've never known them to be misleading at all.

compared to anandtech (believe I spelled that right) legit reviews, rojakpot, xibit labs I believe they are, tom usually has outdated reviews that don't seem like they were performed as thoroughly......IMO there's just better places to get better information
