GTX 295 for 140euro ?!!?!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I went to the shop to purchase my GTX 465 . and i asked for the Graphics card list to see if there is any news , or something interesting .

In end of the list i found a rather interesting deal . a Gainward GTX 295 1792 MB for sale . I asked is something is wong with the price , or the card due to extreamly cheap price . He said the card is sitting here since a year , and they could not sell it .

The card is "new" ( never used ) , has proper warrity , and costs only 140.00 euro . What the ?

How much performance gain will i get above 4890 , how hot goes the card , and is it worth power over technology ?

Your ideas , suggestions are more than welcome biggrin.gif

your cpu will bottleneck the gtx295 and you need a new monitor

oc your cpu to 3.8ghz and get at least monitor using 1920x1080 res.

his monitor should be fine, CPU tho if it isn't overclocked to around 3.7 or so ghz it would bottleneck reducing performance of the 295GTX. biggrin.gif

Your monitor is fine. Your res performs within 5% of 1080P. It's very close.

Yes, it will bottleneck. But the GTX295 for 140 is a GREAT DEAL. It will only bottleneck a small amount.

Your CPU should be fine if its clocked at 3.7GHz and you don't need a new monitor, with that card at that resolution you will just have awesome power for pretty much any game i can think of.
Needs teh upgrade

Dont worry about the bottleneck, I run at the same resolution as you with 460 sli on a dual core and I still noticed a big difference adding the second card.

Its a good price, the only issue is driver complications
