If it is between them two then I would get the GTX 295,But a single GTX 280 or GTX 285 will do the job on most games unless you have a 30 inch monitor.

Yesterday I discovered that FO3 is the second game in addition to BF2 that has to be played on my 295 in single GPU mode.

I played FO3 for 90 days on a 280 and the performance is the same.

Crysis, and all other games- compared to a 280- is twice as fast as on a 295 in dual GPU Mode.
