Yeah, why the GTX 295?
It is still a powerful card but is expensive and runs hotter than da the sun.
if you HAVE to get the card i would choose the Gainward as BFG is out of business.
A better and cheaper choice would be GTX 570/6950/6970

None.
GTX295 is an old tech, power hog card and produce lots of heat.
Why don't you tell us your FULL specs and budget, we can suggest you a better card... :)

thanks for some more terrible advice jericho, you are terrible, definatley a 6900 or 500 series would be a much better investment unless you can find the 295 for say 100 bucks on ebay but overall it is a terrible idea to go with the 295 unless of course you are interested in cooking breakfast on your gpu like WA1 said tell us your full specs and we can recommend a better gpu for you

for christ sake someone please boot this dumbass off this forum he gives bad advice daily and every post he has he is frothing bullshit out of his mouth, we need people giving good advice on here to keep the integrity of this site, (which 95% of people manage to do) but if the mods allow people such as jericho1991 to roam and foam at the mouth then this forum will loose credibility not to mention that someone may take his advice and be soarly disappointed, please clean the trash off here, thanks

If you go with the BFG, just don't expect any warranty support. Many have posted about problems getting BFG to honor warranties after they dropped out of selling video cards.

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 gainward in the other hand never manufacture current high end card, they tend to only make outdated last gen high end card that recycling gpu chip from company like evga, pny and zotac.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.
