Default Re: My new GTX295 and GTAV

I made this mistake too once.

Last gen had a great OC'ing 8800GTX then I decided ohhh a 9800 GX2 looks good in reviews... buy it. So I sold my GTX. The 9800GX2 was garbage. Some games had slow downs and pausing from the dual card in so many games but the Framerate avg was actually higher.

Sold that and bought another 8800 GTX. Sure the performance was a bit lower but the gaming experience was 400x better.

Lesson learned. I dont care how good the dual cards look on paper or reviews. They suck. Gameplay is never as good as with a single GPU.

Looks like you learned that lesson too, the hard way.
i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, Zotac GTX 680 (1310/7000), 16GB DDR3 1600, 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 RAID 0, Windows 7 x64, CPU and GPU custom watercooled
