NVIDIA exec to PC makers: Pimping overpriced gaming PCs hurts
ARS Technica
By Jeremy Reimer | Published: July 18, 2007 - 11:30PM CT

Is it too expensive to be a PC gamer? Roy Taylor, VP of content relations for NVIDIA, says that some gaming publishers feel that way, particularly when DirectX 10 is involved. But, he says, that perception is created by PC manufacturers who are primarily interested in pushing high-cost gaming machines rather than less expensive yet capable boxes... Front Page

"As we hinted above, Taylor and his game publishing colleagues may be barking up the wrong tree. DirectX 10 requires Windows Vista and a DX10-capable graphics card, and Vista isn't exactly hot in the gaming world. A recent Valve hardware survey showed that only 1.21 percent of users—and these are gamers who enjoy titles such as Counter-Strike and Half-Life 2—have DX10-capable systems. Gamers are staying away from Vista right now, citing comparatively weaker performance on Vista than on Windows XP."
