You want how much for that video card?

Penstar Systems asks the question that most of us have, how high are graphics card prices going to go? Right now, a high end video card can be half of the entire cost of a new PC, more if you want to use 2 video cards in SLI, Chrome or Crossfire mode.
"In the past few years successive cards from both NVIDIA and ATI have pushed that upper price
ceiling higher and higher, and now we are looking at products from both manufacturers that retail
for well above $549. Not only that, but with SLI and CrossFire the hard core enthusiast has the
ability to spend $1500 alone on the graphics subsystem of their computer (in this case 2 x 7800
GTX 512 MB). The question we need to ask ourselves is if we can expect to pay upwards of $1000
for a single video card anytime soon?"
