Originally Posted by Tim Ssure, but then what happens when someone with a DVI display wants to connect their monitor? Most people have DVI monitors, so it makes sense to keep dual DVI for the time being on the 3650 and DVI/VGA on the lower-end cards because they're taylored more to the value segment. That said, I want to see VGA disappear of these cards and be replaced by either HDMI or DisplayPort.

i ran a 9600 pro for 2 years before i felt the need to upgrade to my current x850 - and that is just now starting to feel crippled.
