From X-Bit Labs:

In our recent reviews we focused on ultrafast multi-GPU solutions that may cost you $1000 and more. Such tests are indeed interesting and produce the raw data for hot discussions about which GPU developer is better after all. But it must be acknowledged that few gamers have a Radeon HD 4970 or a pair of GeForce GTX 480 cards in their computers. Most of us have to limit ourselves to far more modest products. As a matter of fact, $200 and cheaper graphics cards constitute the largest share of AMD’s and Nvidia’s sales.

We guess it is the $100 line that separates gaming graphics cards from multimedia ones which are meant for HD video decoding and playback. We can see such interesting products as Nvidia GeForce GT 240 and ATI Radeon HD 5670 near that line. They are good for any HTPC but also fast enough for some gaming. It is also in this category that we can see the majority of original solutions designed in unique ways whereas top-end products usually follow the reference designs developed by AMD and Nvidia.
