GTX 260 x 2 or GTX 285 X 1 Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Graphics Last response: March 1, 2010 7:22 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Jules-61 March 1, 2010 6:09:13 PM Hello, My GTX 260 X 2 both have faults so my supplier suggested 1 x GTX 285 my PC covers both but I do not know weather to change or not More about : gtx 260 gtx 285 Yuka a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 6:15:13 PM GTX295, nothing less for those 2 GTX260's. Cheers! rodney_ws March 1, 2010 6:37:19 PM Who is your supplier? Tell us... because that is someone who is trying to do you DIRTY. If they were offering you two 285 GTXs... that'd be fine... even two 275 GTXs... but a single 285 GTX? Bah. That stinks.

I have a gtx 285 and haven't run into a game a can't play maxed. outlw6669 a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 6:38:19 PM A single GTX 285 will perform quite a bit lower than a pair of GTX 260s. Not a good deal... obsidian86 a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 6:39:01 PM gtx260<gtx285<5850<5870<gtx295<gtx260x2<5970 outlw6669 a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 6:46:31 PM obsidian86 said:gtx260<gtx285<5850<5870<GTX260 SLI<gtx295<GTX 275 SLI<5970 /fixed obsidian86 a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 7:02:24 PM i dunno hey its really touch and go between 260 sli and a gtx 295 i'd give the edge to the sli due to better clocking although the gtx 295 is gtx 275 cores clocked down to gtx 260 speeds outlw6669 a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 7:06:06 PM Which kinda gives you the answer there... Which is faster, 2x240sp or 2x216sp, when both are running at the same clocks obsidian86 a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 7:09:54 PM but you can overclock higher using 2 coolers then only using one outlw6669 a b U Graphics card March 1, 2010 7:19:23 PM Perhaps, but you can also overclock the GTX 295. No matter how much you overclock though, you can not add sp.... Hard to say which will be faster when you factor in overclocking.
