according to the video card Nazi on CAG, $200 ain't mid-range. and my $300+ GTX 970 barely meets the "mid-range" standard
Read a couple threads back for reference and how the Batman Arkham Knight debate got started
Re-read my post. I called $200-300 mid-ranged.
3.5 GB 970 normally is above $300 which is above mid-range pricing - but isn't priced at the high end, though performs like a high-end card.
970's somewhere in-between mid-ranged and high, price-wise.
High-end to me would be more like the 980's variants - 4GB 980 and 6GB 980 Ti.
Titans are just extreme.
Is there a site that tells you what everyone's hardware is worth and whether it's low mid or high range? If so you should all post the retail value of the parts in your computer even though there's no way you could actually sell it for that price, because we all really care and need to know.
You could always go by Tom's Hardware's range:
Tom's Range is interesting. I wouldn't consider < $200 as mid-range. That's more entry level stuff. You know, I would not really consider my 4GB 960 a enthusiast card (that $200+ range), which is what Tom's Hardware calls $200-300 in this article. Enthusiast titles probably suits more for 970 club ($300-400 club), as that isn't even getting into the way more expensive club of Nvidia cards - i.e. the high-end club of the 4 GB 980, 6GB 980 Ti, and the ridiculously high-end 12 GB Titan.
