GTX 295 on 1920x1200

Will there be a noticeable difference if I go with this Card versus GTX 285? My Cousin is planning to build his new rig and we are having a discussion about this. I'm just not sure which card is better value in terms of speed and performance. His Specs

I7-920
ASUS Rampage 2 Extreme
6gb Dominator 1600Mhz
640 Caviar Black
1250w Coolermaster
V8

Many Thanks.

    Tri or dual?
  3. dual, but the PSU can go tri. Not sure bout the mobo
  4. That board has 3 PCI-E slots. I'm not sure if you want to pay for 3. You can always upgrade when the price is better, but that could be a while.
  5. I'd suggest this eVGA board instead. It's $70 less, supports three cards, and gets better Newegg reviews.

    As for the video cards, I'd try one GTX 285 for now. Add another if/when needed. Add a third only if really necessary. Currently GTX 285 Tri-SLI is the fastest thing available. It even beats two GTX 295 cards (Quad-SLI).

    I've heard about GTX 285 Tri-SLI faster than QUAD-SLI. By the way, I also read from other forums regarding adding different type of card and assigning as physx? Can I buy Single GTX 285 and add 9600 GT as Physx? Do all motherboard with SLI support this? And Is this a good idea?
