    hey you jumped on the 295 bandwagon? you wont be disapointed. from what i have read it is a hair better than 260 216sp sli. and a little slower than 280sli

    Yeah jumped on the bandwagon.

    I was going to go for a 4870x2 but i hesitated on the buy button... i've been hearing about people having microstutter and people who claim they don't [with the GTX295] so thought id take the risk myself, should be here tomorrow

    i am interested in a 3dmark 06,03 with that q6600 overclocked. my 295 is reserved for an intel based build. when i had it in it ate everything alive with high aa and af except crysis and warhead

    When you had it in, was Crysis/ Warhead playable (smooth), and at what resolution did you play? What settings (High or Very High?) I realize from your other responses to my earlier questions that you don't have numbers for me, but can you at least give me your recollection of how Crysis felt/played with your 295 + A8n32-SLI Deluxe? I won't even ask you to pull out those 8800GTX's cause' I know you won't do it.

    Thx,
    Hi Res.

    i believe crysis was 2x aa all high @1680x1050 might of been 4x. warhead was gamer @1680x1050 no aa. all other games had very good amounts of eye candy. i am not pulling them out. i had such a hard time fitting 2 monster cards and an audio card on that motherboard. ALL games were smooth on the 295. crysis and warhead included. i am building a new rig INTEL soon so i can get proper use of that card and sli 8800gtx on my socket 939 system is a real nice fit

    Tommy,

    Thanks a bunch for that info! I am able to play Crysis and Warhead at those settings and that resolution quite smoothly, with my SLI 8800GTX system with the 939 Opteron 185 OC'd on the A8N32-SLI Deluxe. But the 295 should be capable of more, and at higher res., even with Crysis. You helped a lot, because now it seems that the Opteron is a BIG bottleneck for the 295! Now, I'll wait for a while before I upgrade again, and when I do, it will be an entire new system. Probably i7 965 Extreme, 3x2Gb 1333 RAM (for Windows 7, 64-bit), plus SLI (?) with the newest 40 nm Nvidia chip. Have you heard anything about when NVidia's next generation chip is due for release??

    Thx again. You just saved me some cash.

    The GT300 is at least 10 months away (Q4 09)

    i mean if you can sell your sli 8800gtx for even 100 each then that card would only be 300. the 295 was obviously better in my rig than the 8800gtx sli. you can turn the aa and af to levels that the 8800gtx sli would dream about doing. that would help alleviate your bottleneck plus you game at a higher resolution than me and you have a 200mhz advantage over me as well. i got 56,000 just now in 03 @621/1458/2000 8800gtx sli

    Same here however the main reason I chose the GTX 295 is because I have an X38 board and know I would have been tempted to purchase a second 4870x2 if I had gone that way. Wife would not have understood this natural urge.

    Right. I do have the 200 MHz advantage; but remember, a slight CPU performance increase has almost no effect when gaming at the higher resolutions. At 1920x1200, I may be able to work the aa and af a bit, but for $300 and considering it's only those two games, Crysis and Warhead (all others smooth as silk) ... not worth the money. That $300 could go toward a new x58 ASUS board! Gaming benches for x58/ i7 boards with one GTX295 show Crysis Warhead to be playable at 30-40 fps, 1920x1200, and eye candy "on" at Enthusiast setting. I like dem apples.

    Or maybe I'll just wait for the Nvidia G300 series.

    Congrats on the card Karl2, I couldn't quite afford it this round.

    As far as your wife goes, mines the same way. :argue:

    You could always tell her the second card was a Valentine's Day Gift. :kiss:

    Probably a bad idea though as I still have the scar from when I tried that a few years ago. :bonk:
