Default Merge this and the 400 series forums?

... I'd hate to be that guy, but can we merge this with the 400 series forums? lets face it, we're just talking a chip refresh, not a product line...

Unless some real technical differences show up it might benefit them to be in the same forum especially when it comes to drivers and common problems from an application standpoint.

Agreed. Too many sub forums clutter the site up.

You might be right. It might be better to have just a general Geforce forum.

I thought about maybe a "Geforce" and "Legacy NVIDIA" setup, but what happens when GTX 2XX becomes Legacy? We're not going to be able on the admin side to manually extract all the GTX 2XX threads and put them in the Legacy forum when the time comes... So maybe a "Geforce" and "Other GPUs" setup might make sense.

idk.

I think the seperate nvidia subforums are fine. It's an nvidia fansite so it works. You could get away with just an Nvidia forum if it wasn't a fansite.

I also wasn't expecting a GTX 500 subforum.
Just add "and GTX 500" to the existing GTX 400 forum title
