    I was going to pick up a 9500GT for a HTPC.

    Might wait now for a GT220 to become available.

    these don't look too bad. They might finally *crosses fingers* get rid of the G92 and co. based cards.

    I've been speculating these cards optimistically for at least a year now, it's not the specifications of these specific cards that compels me, its the 40nm fabrication process which does, along with the new technology the card will be cooler, more quiet and a lot more stable than its predecessors of the 8/9 series; enabling more overclocking ability for those who wish to have near high end cards at a low end price. Not only that, but the actual high end 40nm cards with higher core and shader clocks (to be released around Q1 2010) will set new standards for all graphic industries to guide by, increasing our standard of gaming graphics and so on. Along with these new cards Intel have devised new 32nm processors for mainstream and high end desktop form factors. These are to be released around Q1 2010. These will set new standards of performance and low price. So let it be heard that 2010 is the year of upgrading your PC's and buying new ones, and even Laptops/Netbooks, as they too will get similar technological upgrades.

    why the hell dident nivid give the gtx275 and 285 dx10.1

    I mean the cards are so good at handling AA anyway it would just make them so much better... and a bet 'Made for NVIDIA' games would of taken full advantage of it...

    Oh well NVIDIA missed their chance on mainstream dx10.1 now they are late on dx11, wtf...

    If it was not for their rock solid awesome optimized drivers i would not of come back.

    Hopefully they use the latest revision of Nvidia's video decoder :D

    I am wondering how much noise those fans make.

    I dont need them to be dead silent.
    As long as they dont make too much noise, I figure it is always good to have something extra helping the air flow, preferably being directed out of the case.
    Rather than have heat, just build up within the case.

    How can they be late on DX11? It's not even implemented in any games yet! ATI may already have support but that doesn't make NVidia late... it makes ATI early.

    I doubt we'll find many with fans, most companies will just use a passive setup to reduce costs.

    Wonder how that will perform. Looks like it might be out a bit sooner than the GT210/220.

    Looks like my new ATI HD4350 card that I just purchased for my new HTPC.

    What will be the advantage to you?

    You'll be paying more, and you won't really see any kind of difference as use for an HTPC as you would with a 9500GT. Just buy the 9500GT now, waiting for GT220 will just be a waste of time.

    Yeah, like Chripper I have been waiting a long time for the new nVidia 40nm low end refresh too. The HTPC stays on 24/7 so new generation 40nm lower power usage is worth it.

    And yep I would only get a passively cooled card too. Got a 7300GT in there now.

    The ATI 4550 passive cards like those made by Saphire are a good option if you don't want to wait and don't use nVidia's PureVideo stuff.

    Anyone heard what video processor they will be using? Most nvidia cards will come with the VP2, whereas they are already putting VP3 on some low end cards.

    Just an update for those interested, we should see these cards showing up in the next couple of weeks.

    Some suppliers already have MSI cards listed.
