I have a single 260, and this thing is amazing! If i were you, i would get the 295 (dual GPU) but some people say that they have problems, but some people don't. So really, i think the 295 is better, you can put another one in later and have quad SLI!

Oh yeah... like the above post, whats your specs, your gonna need a huge psu for the 295, or 260's sli in that matter

If you have patience and can wait indefinitely, get the 295.
If you need a card now, get the 260.
