Default Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 275, 285 or 295" thread

i hated my GTX295 at first. it was slightly stuttery in many games but mainly GTA IV

that was in XP as well. then i installed Vista and its performance increased loads.

so it must have been the fresh install of the drivers that was the cure along with the OS. i love it now. granted it does get very warm and the dvi ports get hot enough to cook on.

i also have a 9600gt which i got for 50 on ebay and use that for physx only. i had tried it on its own and its a great card but now where near the powehouse of the 295

crysis cannot be ran maxed out on the 9600, on the 295 it can at 1920x1200

i also used witht he previous Q6600 and it was fast with that too. but with the i7 it does seem to be an improvement
