While plenty of high end graphics cards have been hitting the market lately, the lower end cards have been the stars of the show lately. Nvidia and AMD have been launching a variety of mainstream cards that continue to offer gamers more and more bang for the buck.

The Radeon HD4770 may be one of the most interesting offerings in this class of graphics cards. With a price tag right around $100 (US) and features that will allow you to play some of the more demanding games with the settings turned up, it is bound to be a popular product.
