Yeah, I say hold on to it for now. I'm going to be holding on to mine for a while still, because they are still some beasts for how old they are.

I agree with this guys. keep the card, mine has proven to be the most rugged card ever, surviving to power supply explosions (Don't ask) and an "Accidental" fall.... Just for you to know

295 draws more. it's got two cores on it.


Besides, one video card isn't going to make a differance in the environment.
