Superb job, mate. I'm also thinking about upgrading my GTS 640MB to one of these..

Here's my favorite GTX200 review: (Because it includes 8800Ultra, GTX260, GTX280, GTX295, and 4870X2. And it has a nice big chart on page 1 of all their Specs.)

I think Nvidia hit the nail on the head with the GTX 285. I believe best card on the planet. While a 295 maybe faster in some things I really prefer single GPU. Very nice review.

I thought about that... but not sure if my 650W PS will cut it... plus for all the extra heat generated I doubt I would notice any real difference in FPS. Maybe I will give it a shot...

with my ocz 700W, I think the 285 would be a nicer fit than the 295!
