Great, it looks more like every system will wind up being Intel-Nvidia-Creative from here on out.

PC gaming used to be about all the different options in the way systems could be built, now if you don't have those 3 then your system pretty much sucks.

No suprise there really.

Id be suprised if they would put PPUs on video cards.
Seems crowded, hot and hungry for juice as it is.
