If I can get even more time out of my current rig by getting a new video card I would be pretty happy... I don't yet feel the need to go Core i7 yet Also keep in mind I have a 650W power supply. Thats probably starting to push it these days
If you're using a Q6600 at 3.15GHz as listed in your sig, then it won't even push a 285 to it's limits, therefore it certainly won't push a 295 to it's limits. I wouldn't bother with a 295 until you upgrade CPU's or overclock yours to 3.8GHz+.
