System Specs:

Intel i5 750 (@2.66ghz)

Motherboard: Gigabyte P55-UD3

RAM: 2x2GB 1600mhz DDR3 (x86 so only 3.5gb useable D: )

In the process of upgrading my generic 850w power supply to a 1100w silent pro.

Just wondering if I can get what I pay for with this card?

You should have no bottlenecking issues, maybe a light overclock would help, but you should be fine. As for the power supply, all you need is a good quality 750w, and I mean GOOD QUALITY. Even an average 1100w is not recommended. Get one of these:

Also why the GTX 295? The 5870 is basically just as fast, has DX11, and is a single card system so won't be an issue in the future (SLI/cfx tends to be problematic). Oh its also a lot cheaper... Hell for a bit more you could get a 5970, which destroys a GTX 295.

Wow thats alot of useful information :D 

I never really looked at Radeon cards..Except the 5970 which is a little out of my price range for now.
