GeForce.com writes, "According to Valve's hardware survey results, the 2008-released GeForce 9800 GT is the most popular graphics card used on Steam. While many gamers are still using three-year-old GPUs, interestingly enough, Valve's data also states that the most popular gaming resolution, by a vast majority, is 1920x1080 (21.1%). This discrepancy in what hardware the majority of people have versus what resolutions their displays support presents an interesting predicament. Essentially, users running 9800 GTs and even older graphics cards would have to make compromises in performance, graphical settings, or both to play games at such a high resolution. With the price of large 1920x1080-capable monitors dropping like flies, the popularity of HD gaming will only continue to grow, and because we wanted gamers to be able to play modern games at 1920x1080, the way they were meant to be played, we have designed the affordable GeForce GTX 560.
