After much thought i am going with the gtx 295, my question to you all is, which brand would you rather
bfg gtx 295 or gainward gtx 295
why buying an old card from a company that's already bankrupted? ain't you realize bfg is gone long time ago? gainward in the other hand never manufacture current high end card, they tend to only make outdated last gen high end card that recycling gpu chip from company like evga, pny and zotac. so even they have gtx 295 it would probably cost down very bad in pcb layout, capacitor, rob and heatsink/fan which it's very bad for a card like gtx 295 that has high power demand and need stable transit signal.
i would say either of these card aint good to buy because either gtx 570/580 can beat it with twice of performance in dx10 game so you'd better just get some modern card instead.
