Re: how much faster is a standard 295 over my 280 SSC?
Depending on the game, the GTX 295 can be 60% faster to 5% faster than a GTX 280. If you like Crysis or Far Cry 2, the GTX 295 will DEFINITELY be worth it for you. It is slightly slower than a GTX 280 SLI setup but does not consume as much power.
