Default Re: Which card to buy?

Okay sorry for dragging this out, but I would like to make decision before monday.

My choices are:


BFG GeForce GTX 285 OC BFGRGTX2851024OCE / 1GB DDR3 / PCI Express 2.0 / Graphics Card (costs £285)

Zotac GeForce GTX 295 ZT-295E3MA-FSP / 1792MB DDR3 / PCI Express 2.0 / Graphics Card costs (£370)

BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC Maxcore / 896MB / PCI Express 2.0 / Graphics Card (costs £219)

BFG nVidia GeForce GTX 295 / 1792MB DDR3 / PCI Express 2.0 / Graphics Card (costs £398).


The difference between Zotac and BFG (from what I know) is that Zotac has a 5yr warranty and farcry 2 as well as 3dmark vantage), but on the otherhand BFG has 10yr warranty and I know more about them.

The difference between the GTX 260 and the GTX 295 = £149

The difference between the GTX 260 and the GTX 285 =£66

The difference beween the GTX 285 and the GTX 295 =£85

Cheers

GTX 285 is well worth the 66E over the GTX 260. On a decently overclocked GTX 285, you get approximately 15-20% more FPS than the GTX 280, which is already a few percentage points faster than the GTX 260/216.

I'm another single-card fan, but that's because 1) My poor PSU couldn't support a GTX 295 2) I don't like that my game performance depends on the quality of nVidia's SLI department. I'm not saying they do a bad job, but that is a bit too much trust to put in their hands.
