Press Release: VisionTek™ Introduces First Retail RADEON®™ X1300 256MB PCI in North America

I really loved this Press Release. The only thing that I don't like is that, this video card will be released only in North America. I mean, hey, I'm not a gamer but I do play games from time to time, and sometimes, on a machine that doesn't have a PCIe x16 slot. I hope some of the cards eventually trickle down here, so I can go grab one and light up the eyes of my kids still using a PC based on Intel® Pentium® !!! 933GHz with on-board graphics on a motherboard I don't even remember the model :). Anyway, expand for the full Press Release.
