MSI GTX 295 896mb X2 for skyrim? Or vs HD4000? Tags: Intel i5 Skyrim MSI Graphics Gtx Inspiron Last response: 1 minute ago in Graphics & Displays Share sammy sung July 8, 2014 12:50:00 AM I can get this card very cheaply from a friend, and I'm looking to put it in my inspiron 660, i5-3330. What sort of fps could I expect to see from skyrim on medium settings? Talking about this card btw http:// More about : msi gtx 295 896mb skyrim hd4000 Reply to sammy sung FunSurfer July 8, 2014 2:08:47 AM Well I can't find any direct benchmark of the GTX295 of Skyrim , but there is a benchmark with GTX260 which has the same amount of VRAM as the 295 and it scores 31.6 fps on 1080p ultra settings: https://www.google.co.il/search?q=skyrim+benchmark+%22g... The GTX 295 has the performance of a GTX570 though, and the 570 gets 55.5 on that benchmark, so the 295 should do better than 55fps on medium settings. The HD4000 scores only 33.4 fps on medium settings at 1050p: https://www.google.co.il/search?q=skyrim+hd+4000&source... So the GTX 295 will do much better than the HD4000 at medium settings, but the 295 is a power hog so check that your PSU is up to it.

Sorry I was meaning purely for the ability to play DX11 games, rather than using a very old powerhungy DX9 card.

OP better get the GTX 750... Reply to FunSurfer m 0 l ILoveYouTaco 1 minute ago He said he could get it cheaply. So let's consider that. BUT, (Big but hehe) that card guzzles power. It will probably cost more in the long term than a gtx 750 or R7-260x. I would go with the newer cards Reply to ILoveYouTaco m 0 l Ask the community Post an answer Related resources SolvedGigabyte Gtx 770 vs. MSI 7970 x2 SLI Forum Gtx295 X2 vs ATI 5970??
