Default PC Gaming Dying? Enthusiast hardware is a $9.5 billion market

Top-of-the-line gaming PC components are a big business, according to a new report by Jon Peddie Research. The market analysis firm says that, out of all the money spent on "gaming motivated PC hardware" in 2009, a whopping 46% of it went toward so-called enthusiast parts. In this case, that term refers to "boutique PCs, high-end processors and graphics cards, SSD's, specialized gaming mice, keyboards, speakers, monitors, etc."

I'd say, bring on Crysis 3.0 with ubersweet graphics which requires next generation VGA to run at 1600x1200 above 30fps

(and use steam for distribution)

Why the market share shrink? As JPR analyst Ted Pollak points out in the report, hardware requirements for PC games are stagnating.
thanks to all the console ports. Booh!

1600x1200? They still make those?

my point is that at 1920x1200 no single GPU could run it fluently
oh and 1600x1200 is way better in ratio than 1920x1200. 4:3 FTW

1920x1440 would be better
