Why will I not notice? Because in games like far cry 2 or call of duty w@w I am getting way over 50fps with all settings max and some AA. Hell no, I am not going to give nvidia another £400 only to play ONE GAME smoothly (you know what it's called) I'd rather get second velociraptor and run it in raid. I guess my overclocked 280 gtx will last me another 6 months or more.
But that's just my opinion, you have every right to disagree with it.
Exactly! And thanks xmichaeluk for nailing all the sentiments I had building up while reading this thread.
Where's the GTX285 version of this thread?
I've got untill January 26th '09 for my BFG GTX280 Trade-Up. I'm going to beat the date I think.
But not for the GTX295; I want the GTX285.
Less power and 10% better.
After my 9800X2 experience (sent it back after 48 hrs. for a GTX280) I will never, ever, go for a sandwiched Video Card or Dual GPU Card.
