Top 10 Enthusiast & Prosumer Video Cards

Here are the Top 10 Enthusiast & Prosumer Video Cards, which are all best suited to the purpose of providing the absolute best value in the Enthusiast & Prosumer market from ATi and nVidia. Since different applications utilize varying performance qualities of graphics subsystems, the total performance index is not sufficient to make a clear determination of which video card is best for your use. If your application is engaged in performing some CUDA computations on an nVidia card, for instance, you might want to go for the highest FLOPS percentage on the pie chart for that card. That would indicate that the card is skewed towards high level GPU computation which is best suited for CUDA apps.
