People getting a budget card are notgoing to go for high res so why bother with the review ,as other people have said include some lower res tests.

Imo there should be a standard test which all cards do, so lets say 1920x1080 at max, and another test dependent on the card, high ends can do 2560, and medium/low could do say 1920 medium. That way we've got a test for the cards possible target as well as a way to compare each card.

Also, you dont wanna know what res my moniter is :P

On the card, it is overpriced a bit for it to be a good deal but just in checking prices on the 7850's they have gone up by $20 or so in just the past week so maybe they're making it seem a better deal that way. Sucks for me, I was about to buy one in a couple weeks :|

I agree, 1920 x 1200 should stick around, but likely it'll be rare. I think if I upgraded I'd want a 1920 x 1200 screen. The price will probably shift down a bit since it's just been released.

We have been saying for ages now that running low end cards at a higher resolution than 1080 is pointless.
