I think they need to stop touting things like tessalators and DirectX APi Compatibility, and just keep it at High-End, Mid-Range, and Low-End, and Enthusiast. Because really, just because my dinky 4450 can do DX11, really isn't going to be the selling point for a $60 card that'll do DX11 at what... 5 FPS? May even be misleading for some who just go "Oh, DX11, thats past DX9, must be amazing!". Anyone still know somebody that thinks a 3.0GHz P4 is faster than a 2.6GHz Core i7 920? I sure do. :)

 But I do like, because I'm not all hate, that people can get HD, Blu-Ray with the HDCP, and have a decent video card for windows 7's aero, at a good, cheap price.

Who cares about the DX11 right now :)? This makes an awesome cheap upgrade for a media streaming pc or HTPC or something to play HD content :)!!

makes some sense to have a dx11 card with basic features for those who really don't game, and looking for a cheap upgrade.

if i had to build a desktop for a relative that only plays games like torchlight or flash games, i would probably go with this card.

budget cards always suck, better to buy closeout  of last years or used. why would you need DX11 unless you game really ? even then if you game do you really need dx11 yet ? 

I'll wait for the hardware and the games to come down

Why?  This card will get murdered in most DX11 games.  I suppose it is a step in the right direction though.  We can't expect them to keep putting out DX10 cards...

 It's not a gaming card! It's a card you'd put in to a HTPC, or something where a little bit of video power is needed, but you can't go with onboard, and a heavy card is overkill.

 Just use it for a HTPC and t'hell with games. Be a great HTPC card, like the 4800 series before them.

I am wondering if this would out perform a 9800GT video card?  Or if I could add it in as the main video and leave the nVidia card in to do Physx.  How do you think this card will fair in gaming with World of Warcraft, Crysis, and a few others.

I only have a 9600GT upon inspection but if I buy a card I am going with the 5750 and leaving the GT in and using it for physx.

The 9800GT will kick the living tar out of this card. This isn't meant for gaming in the slightest, rather to be used to for media centres and HDMI connections. If you want to game then you should look at ATI's other and more able cards, like the 5770. I have one in my computer, and it runs beautifully.
