What I find interesting is the fact that the article from the other day about Intel killing off the discrete video market stated that only 5% would purchase such card and that 95% are fine with integrated graphics ( http://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-ivy-bridge-cpu-gpu-nvidia,15484.html ).
If that's the case then let's take the 54 million of us from this study and run some math. If that other article was right about 5% then there are a total of 1.08 billion computer consumers in the world. At a population just over 7 billion, that's almost 1 in 7 people on earth that owns a computer. Now at only 5%, that's .35% of a person that will purchase a discrete card. Now you say what about those who purchase discrete cards for other purposes than gaming. That's still going to be less than 1 person...
So, how's it feel to be less than a person? Makes me feel great! No wonder I hated statistics in college...

You forgot to write /brag.
Seriously, GTX 690 is overkill for anything below 3 full HD monitors and 2x GTX 580 will eat anything you throw at it for breakfast in next 2-3 years at least. Rich much?
I think the writer is confused with what a PC gamer is, I think the writer is thinking that the game apps are really part of PC gamers choice games. lol. I think the writer is also trying to relate a $1.99 app like angry birds to a $59.99 Guild Wars 2. I think the price alone is what is driving those app sales, Most people would not pay $59.99 for rubbish like that. I have to put most there as I know some people would. We PC Gamers do not even consider them real games. Just think next article may be comparing Facebook games with real games.
