Well the pricing had better be decent or else this really is practically the same as buying some random desktop at PCWorld.

Pricing? There is no pricing. It will just be a sticker that will go onto boxes or whatever to show how good the components inside are for certain tasks, prices won't change, it will just help users to make informed choices about purchases rather than just getting the highest numbers

U mean like taking all the models they make/sell and creating a way of reference so that the average consumer can more easily judge how the product in the case could perform ?

As I said, I'm not 100% sure how it will be carried out but I assume something like all the sub 2.0GHz single/dual cores will be basic, and low end cards will be basic, then sub 3.0 ghz duals will be premium and then stuff like 4670s, everything else will be ultimate, and the high clocked quads and dual cards will be black.

So yeah, sort of just giving them a rating.

Good initiative if you ask me, finally a brand that seems to care about the customers without charging them for it.

Sad side is, computer store salesmen will still try to sell too powerful rigs to office use customers.

"Internet games? You sure as hell need an ultimate or black computer for that, that's a gaming computer"

Yeah, so the average person buying a computer can easily see how the one computer's components will compare to the next.

The point I was trying to weasel out was that another brand did do something to consolidate to the purchaser what each card meant in relation to the others that came out and was royally slated for doing so.

I actually think they get slated just for being the predominant brand now. I even find out the other day that the benchmarking results for them are tampered with in order to make the other brand feel better - making them pretty useless.
