    All these cards over the £160 mark don't offer good value. When you can get a £100 card now to play nearly any game at high detail on a 22" monitor, whats the point in spending more than you have too. The market for graphics cards over £100 is getting very very small.

    Larger monitors, higher resolutions, high settings...

    What percentage of gamers who want these cards do you think have anything over 22" for a monitor?

    What percentage of gamers don't even have a need for a £100 card?: The majority. Outside of the majority there are different groups with different needs- some of which will be met with a £100 card, and some of which will need a £160 or greater card. If Hexus only ever catered for the majority then you could expect nothing but reviews of integrated chipsets

    But so why does a card like this only get a review score of 70% - Because you have to take into account value. Any card over £160 does not represent good value because a £100 card can do pretty much everything a £160 card can do for 99% of people.

    And I don't think any proper gamer really uses integrated graphics on a chipset.

    What do you mean only?

    That sounds like snobbery. The majority of gamers use integrated graphics. If you're making arbitary divisions you might as well say that proper gamers only use 24"+ displays and need £160 cards
