Very loaded question.

Depends on your definition of "best". Best could be based on actual highest FPS, and could also include a certain budget range, etc.

The big question is, what are your system specs, and gaming resolution?

And the award for Laziest 'can't find Google person' with the most money to blow goes to!!

You may as well flush a grand down the toilet if you are gonna get a 295 in that system with that res.

never said I was going to get a new gpu.
google's great for bullshit searching, but when you want real advice from people who use them and have opinions on there performance it's better to come here.

Why are you even on tom's if your not here to help people?
hey I can bash you all day about your system compared to my new one I just built but thats not why im here.

Thanks for the help

you have basically posted this exact same question in your "what FPS should I have with my SLI-285 system"

for someone who states they built a system that includes an OC i7 CPU (rather high i might add), OC SLI cards, and 1600mhz DDR3 ram, I find it hard to believe you dont know what the top of line computer parts are. So either you are lying and you did not build that system or you came here to brag about it.

i just realized something, he states "3 days and 4,500 later....it's worth it" after his specs so he never did build it. My guess from all the OC on that rig, its from Uberclok.

Wow, him posting his setup and the price definitely identified the source of all of the questions. That thing totally isnt worth $4500, get some skills and build it yourself next time around and save a couple grand. Also if you have any more questions Google is your friend
