Basically I'm selling my GTX 260 to family for £60 - I can pick up a GTX 295 for £210 as stated. I'm wondering if this is; 1. A good price and 2. a worthwhile upgrade.
The other thing that is making me reconsider is from what I understand, the 295 takes a 6pin+8pin input and my PSU only has 2x 6pin (with no 8pin covertor/adaptor). Does that mean an upgrade is required?
I agree, 5850 would be a better route than the 295. Why buy a card now that doesn't have DX11 support and has high power consumption, effectively making the card more expensive? Can't remember what the idle consumption of the 295 was but from memory it was close to if not over 90W o.O
