Total Value Rating

 

The TVR graph is the TPR score divided by the price of the video card. The price of the video card is based on the list price of the model on Newegg.com. In the event the card isn't listed, it will be based on the U.S. $ MSRP given to us by the manufacturer.

 

In the event we can't source a price from either, the product will not receive a TVR rating. As with our TPR graph, the amount of video cards on the list will grow over time and the price of the model won't change from what it was when first reviewed. For this reason the U.S. $ price that the card is based off will be included next to the name of the model.

 

In the event you want to find the TVR rating yourself based on the current price, all you have to do is simply divide the TPR number by the list price.

 

TVR numbers are rounded to the nearest whole number; 100.3 will be 100; 100.8 will be 101 and 100.5 will be rounded down to 100.

With the same price tag as the Galaxy, its value sits a little better thanks to it being a little faster. The more aggressive $135 US MSI price, yet still strong clocks, means it does fall a little behind. With that said, Palit do offer a Sonic model with 850MHz core for a similar price to the MSI, so that's something worth considering if you want to save a little money and you're happy to OC yourself.
