I'm looking to buy a new card for my rig. I'm debating between the gtx 280, 285, or 295. I have e6850 core 2 duo running stock speeds. I had two 8800gtx in SLI, but they were running so hot I got rid of them. So looking for best soluton to game at 1920x1080. Monitor is 37' westinghouse LCD.
thanks for any input!!! I'm open to any suggestions... even if it is another sli setup. I would like to stay under $500 give or take
I would vote for the GTX 295, HOWEVER, you will want to research this and see which performs better in which games. They seem to trade punches depending on what title you are testing. ALSO, I've seen reviews where the 295 does better in Vista and the 4870x2 does better in XP in the same title.
The Nvidia's favor the new i7 CPU's which is what you see used in alot of the test systems used for the benchmarks. So it might be difficult to actually tell which will run better in your system.
I would tend to lean to the 295, it's new and seems to do better than the x2 in most games in Vista. Which I would think is what you are running... I hope.
