Graphics card market booming

AS THE ECONOMY goes to pot, only graphics cards seem to be reversing the trend, coming out on top, with GPUs seeing their largest increase in quarter to quarter shipments in six years, according to new research figures.

Little income, piling bills, high gas prices and poor job markets...

The geeks and their priorites, god love them!

Upgrading the video card is probably the most worthwhile upgrade, especially if you're a gamer.

Will the story be the same in 6 months time, I wonder? The evil recession has only just begun.

So much for PC gaming being in total decline! They are playing something on these cards! I'm wondering how many of theses sales are 2nd, 3rd or even 4th cards going into one box?

Great news for Asus and the like with their 4 card MB's as well.":O}
