    I don't understand why are they marketing this as a gaming card? Are all graphic cards now considered as gaming cards?

    I believe there is a big market for gamers who mostly play Dota2 or starcraft2. 100$ gfx card to "mainly" play dota2 is not bad.
    ~ just a thought.

    Well for gaming at 720p LoL, Dota, PoE, WoW it should be enough. Not everyone need 290x.

    Eh, Dota 2 needs a relatively beefy computer to play maxed out without the frames dropping down.

    Hmm, didn't really know that lol.
    I sold my 7970 pair and now I'm using 550ti as my backup card. I do play dota2 on weekends and difference is barely noticeable. Not sure, may be the rest of the system is the helping factor here.

    It's basically the same GPU as the 7850K no? That's good enough for light gaming.

    A GT640 would provide better performance in WoW, and is cheaper. WoW is insanely NVidia biased.

    This card would be perfectly fine for mainstream gamers. I used a 7850 up until just last month and was still able to play everything on medium/high at 1080p @ 60fps.

    I now have a GTX770, but the 7850 was no slouch even though it was a budget card. It overclocked easily right up to, and even above, a stock 7870 too.

    Unless things have changed since I last checked he's spot on.

    30 fps playable...

    I'm going to sit in a corner and laugh/cry, dunno which 1 of the 2 I should be doing.
    The only 2 games that succeeded at feeling somewhat smooth at such framerates were Crysis and Metro for some reason.

    Anadtech says " For 250X AMD is going to be doing a straight rebadge of the most powerful 7700 part, the 7770 GHz Edition, bringing the 7770 into the Radeon 200 family. This is similar to what AMD did a couple of years back with the 5700 series, ultimately rebadging the entire series as the 6700 series. We're not fans of the practice, but with the 200 series already containing a mix of old and new",

    I don`t see the point really unless there is absolutetly no 7770`s left on earth and considering it has no boost clk, even the gcn version is out of date... 1.0 compared to 1.1.

    Blizzard is a TWIMTBP studio. They heavily optimize WoW for NVidia graphics and have for years.

    My GTX560Ti managed to run the game on "Ultra" at 1920x1080 and maintain framerates in excess of 100fps in nearly all areas of the game, whereas my HD7950 can barely manage 100fps in most areas on "High". I originally switched from an HD7870 to a GT640 and with both set to "high" they achieved the same framerates....even though the HD7870 simply obliterated the GT640 in every benchmark.

    Nothing has changed. My GTX660, even though a considerably slower card, still managed to outperform my HD7950 in WoW by a considerable margin.
