Default Re: Sticky: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 285 or GTX 295" thread

I just want to make sure if I go with the 295 I'm not right back in the same boat. I am leaning towards the 285 because I think the 9800gx2 has me spooked now about SLI on one card and to some extent all SLI configs.
your good stuttering with the 295. Something about a 448bit bus, and 896mb per gpu that really makes for fluid FPS, and no stuttering. The 9800GX2 as you know had a 256bit bus, and 512mb per GPU. Loading up AA AF, and high res'es, really caused the GX2 to fall to its knees.
