GTX275 or GTX285
May 8, 2009, 10:54 PM
I'm having trouble deciding between these two video cards.Both cards are the first tier factory overclocked versions.
The first is eVGA GTX 275 SC
the other is BFG GTX 285 OC
The bfg gtx 285 is only $42 ($287 total) more than the evga gtx 275($245 total), but I'm less than impressed with bfg support but I realize it seems the better deal.
What do you guys think?

Depends on the games you play and the resolution. IMO the GTX285 would be worth the 42$, but only if you gain meaningful FPS out of it (no point in going from 100 to 120 ...).

For a 24" screen the GTX285 would be put to good use, even more for Crysis.
