It COULD be an overheating issue. Check your temps.

The GTX295 is more closely related to the GTX260 (I like to say GTX270) as this card is like a hybrid.... If you compare the 295 to SLi 260's then this is a more fair argument, however the 295 will be faster....
Well, to explain my thinking. Yes it is a single card (GTX295) but, you are still dealing with multi-gpu technology. If you are going to deal with multi-gpu technology, I myself compare it to 260/280/285 SLI setups because, single card or not, you are dealing with SLI profiles to gain the benefits/ performance.

Thank you,
Monnie

Very good point that I have over looked being I have a SLI Motherboard as well as thinking that most are considering the x58 SLI boards when talking upgrades. My bad for assuming.

What mobo are you using? Driver version? Processor? Resolutions played?

A lot of people are having those problems with GTA4, try turning off SLI.

I traded up from a 280 to a 295. Here's my 3DMark05 results:

GTX280:

20,657 GTX280 1920X1200 AA 0 AS 0 CPU@3700Mhz

But look at the score drop with AA:

16,014 GTX280 1920X1200 AA 8 AS 16 CPU@3700Mhz

(4,643 less is significant!)

GTX295:

22,873 GTX295 1920X1200 AA 0 AS 0 CPU@3700Mhz

But the GTX295 barely drops with AA and AS:

21,440 GTX295 1920X1200 AA 8 AS 16 CPU@3700Mhz

(Only 1,433 less is a great trade for the AA and AS!)

I got the right card. muahahahah!

I performed a ton of tests at 1050P using 16xAA/16xQAA with extreme IQ settings. If your interested. They show single GTX 260/280/295, And 260 SLI/280 SLI, and 295 Quad SLI.


http://forums.slizone.com/index.php?showtopic=31779

I know its not the most extreme resolution ((was having monitor problems at the time)) but the performance advantage only goes up until you reach 2560x1600 with 8x MS. Might be worth taking a look at. If your gaming at 1680x1050 without transparency SS and low 4xAA you probably wont see a difference in the majority of your games though.
