Hierarchy Graphics Chart ?

Tom's used to have a Hierarchy Graphics Chart that I found useful but can longer find it. Has the chart been supplanted or are my search capabilities that bad? I am not referring to this type of chart: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2012-vga-gpgpu/benchmarks,135.html

What I remember is a one page chart that read something like if the card you are thinking of buying is not at least 3 spaces above your current card forget about it.

Was that at this site?

Thanks

  2. Perhaps this may help.

    Ignore the snark - unintended side effect.
  3. For future reference, look to the monthly "Best Graphic Cards for the Money" articles. The Hierarchy chart is on the last page of these articles.
