My response would be -- what settings are you playing at? The 295 is going to give you considerably more room with higher levels of AA. You'll likely be able to use nhancer to force Combined AA modes for an excellent image quality. With the 4870 1gb, you will be slightly more limited. Look at these benchmarks, they'll give you a good idea of general performance difference. The 295 is obviously more powerful than a 4870 1gb.

The link I posted above has both the 4870 and 295 along with a 260, 280, 285 and 4870 x2

The 295 is great for applying 8AA at 1920x1200 in most games, and 4AA in Crysis.

i can testify that upgrading from 280 to 285 was a stupid and unneccessary decision that I will have to live with this year. At least I now have a card that is eligible for stepup for the next 90 days!!!

For a resolution of just 1680x1050 a GTX 260 will play any game ,but there are some GTX 280 at newegg for just $289 and it will play any game just fine .If you have a SLI board then I would go with a GTX 260-216 since they are just $179 and two would be $360 verus over $500 for a GTX295 ,but a ATI 4870 1gig is not a bad card either and they are around $180
