Default What do they say about a $649 vcard?

THE INQ ASKED for your valuable opinion on Nvidia and ATI's pricing policies, say Nvidia's decision to price a graphics card at $649.
This is what we've got so far. You can find our original story here.

http://theinquirer.net/?article=27509

They = people who know about $649 vcard; 99.9% of the world populations don't.

So, I took the time to ask a few of the 99.9% in the street of Lake Zurich and here is what they have to say:

The question-

Do you know they are selling graphic card in PC for $649?

Answers -

- What is a graphic card? (I get a question instead) 60%
- Are you crazy? (I get a question instead) 10%
- Does it clean my house? (another question) 5%
- Can I watch free movies with it? (damn I said to myself) 5%
- Yes, I know. But, it is only for helping people who can't seem to play well in games. (Shut up, I said) 1%
- Don't talk to me at all. 19%

There is a +/- 5% error factor in this survey.
