Longer bars are better

The result is that the mid-range cards such as GeForce 9600GT, 8800GT and 9800GTX come bounding up the list with the Radeon HD 4850 hard on their heels. They have decent performance and Nvidia has slashed their price to compete with Radeon HD 4850 which increases their value handsomely.

When we reviewed the GeForce 8800GT and GTS in November 2007 we were impressed even though the price was around the £180 mark.

Today you can get the same hardware for £125, which is superb news for gamers.
