I am happy that you are happy. Happiness is key.


My purchase of the gtx 295 did not make me happy hence I sold it.


Maybe it was hindered by a Q9550 @ 3.6Ghz. Maybe I should have pushed it harder and tried 4.0 maybe higher, or just splashed out on a I7 setup.

i hated my GTX295 at first. it was slightly stuttery in many games but mainly GTA IV

that was in XP as well. then i installed Vista and its performance increased loads.

so it must have been the fresh install of the drivers that was the cure along with the OS. i love it now. granted it does get very warm and the dvi ports get hot enough to cook on.

i also have a 9600gt which i got for 50 on ebay and use that for physx only. i had tried it on its own and its a great card but now where near the powehouse of the 295

crysis cannot be ran maxed out on the 9600, on the 295 it can at 1920x1200

i also used witht he previous Q6600 and it was fast with that too. but with the i7 it does seem to be an improvement

Thats cool dude. I only ram it on vista x64 so that may have been why it was slow. The stuttering really got to me. Im not sure if its the dreaded micro stuttering that everyone talks about, but the games no matter how well they ran never felt smooth to me. The 9600GT obviously isnt as fast, but to be honest, considering the price increase.......



Bring on the GT300

I just got a GTX285 two days ago. FANTASTIC card for the money I spent on it. I got mine on sale at Best Buy for $297 and had a $20 Reward Zone certificate....so I got one for $277. Worth every penny so far.

I'm starting to wonder about the 260 now, vs the 275

The 260 costs $260aus for a inno3d, pretty average brand but cheap.

The gigabyte 275 with the fancy new capacitors and 2oz copper board costs $366aus
