WooT I decided to join the club since the Crossfire 4850's weren't filling my needs.
Instead of starting a new thread I thought I'd just try to ask it here.
Will this GPU work with the mobo I currently have (Asus Ma379-T)?
I know that I can't run two in SLI since the mobo is CrossFire, but I wasn't sure if the card having two GPUs would cause me any problems. It's kinda a stupid question but I just wanted to be sure before I spend $500, because I'm going to decide between this and a 4870X2.
a single GTX 295 will work in any motherboard, the SLI is inside the GPU, doesn't require an SLI mobo.
Thanks. I really appreciate the help.
no problem, I'll be doing the same thing (running 295 on CF mobo)
id be running my GTX 295 right now but the 1000hx i got was defective so i had to do a RMA. =(
I think I'm going to go with the 295GTX. My only other concern is my PSU is currently a Corsair TX-750. I know that the PSU is certified for the 4870x2, but I read that the 295's minimum is 680w. Do any of you think that I may have an issue with that? I just bought the corsair ~3 months ago and really would prefer not to have to replace it already.
Thanks again for the previous help. I'm really sorry about sidetracking the thread.
You'll have absolutely no problems with a reputable 750W, I'll be running mine on a 700W which is the recommended.
