Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 275, 285 or 295" thread
Well, I gave in. I found an Evga GTX 285 for $340 and it's awesome, even with Crysis Warhead DX10 Very High 1680x1050 4xFSAA. Very awesome. No more heat, and the power management is great. Coming from 8800GTX SLI the performance is about the same, minimum fps came up in all the games, and I don't have to worry about games that don't support SLI anymore. Here's the thing, I still have 28 days to return it if i wanted to. Should I just hold onto it or return it and wait for something better, perhaps GT300/Fermi. I was looking at the evga classified edition for $400, but to spend that money for the same/slightly better performance minus heat/power consumption doesn't seem, to me at least, worth it.
