I must be living on a different planet to you.

You're on a planet where a rebranded 9600 GSO from May 2008 (which is a rebranded 8800 GS) is still considered "high end".

A planet where the technology of 2 years ago is considered high end.

A planet where a cheap, bottom of the range, OEM card shipped out by Nvidia to clear old stock is high end.

You're actually telling me that it's in the same list as the GT 240, GTS 250, GTX 260, GTX 275, GTX 280, GTX 285 and the GTX 295..... all of which are part of Nvidia's 2008-2009 line up and all of which will destroy it.

Edit - if this doesn't make you see the truth then nothing will: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/vi...GeForce+GT+230 - it's floating in amongst cards such as the x800 xl (which is 5 years old) and the 7900 GS (which is overpriced on ebay at $45).
