Vigile writes: With the release of AMD's latest budget graphics card, the Radeon HD 4770, the GPU giant is bringing a lot of technology to the table. The card sports the world's first 40nm GPU (beating out CPUs to a new process technology for the first time), GDDR5 memory and 640 stream processors all for under $100. What is even more interesting is that as PC gaming has evolved it appears that a $99 graphics card is all you really need to play the latest PC titles if you are comfortable with a resolution of 1920x1200 or below. Since so few PC gamers have screens larger than that could the world of high-end PC graphics simply go away?
