Yeah I just recently made the switch to a GTX295 from a 4870X2.

The main reason for my switch was that CAT AI needed to be switched on in order to get multi GPU to turn on. This caused a bunch of graphics anomalies in games like Quake wars.

In the past when using ATI cards CAT AI was for allowing optimization or I was under the impression it was, and for the longest time I ran this card with CAT AI off.

As soon as I found out that it needed to be turned on in order to get multi GPU to work I fired up Quake Wars, and though I did get better performance I was getting all kind of anomalies the mining laser for example in Qwars would get all gold in color and various other issues. I also had all kind of issues with new driver installs needing multiple reboots.
I loved the card but in the end I didn’t want to wait for drivers to resolve things or wait for a new release to see if it would resolve my issues. Shame really so…….with that said I have had zero issues with anything I throw down the GTX295’s way.

Nice stuff, Meth! I would have saved up for the i7 though. At the price of that 9650, it's not worth it, IMO.

I didn't purchase a CPU for 360. I got my entire new system for 300. 150 after I sold my old one. If I had a choice to buy a CPU or a whole new system for a little more, that's what I would do.

I bought the CPU for $340, and I am going to sell my old one.
