What's wrong with his PSU and RAM?

That PSU has 56A on the 12v rail, and 2 GB of RAM isn't going to kill the card's performance...not sure what you're getting at here.

PS: It's "you" not "u" not that hard.

If you need more ram, you need more ram, the graphics card you choose doesn't dictate how much ram you 'need'. And I dunno what OS the guy is running, but 2GB is enough for XP and any game you wanna run on it, long as you're not trying to run like 10 other programs at the same time.

And technically, a 750W+ psu is more than adequate for a single GTX295. Even if it turns out to not be powerful enough to allow overclocking the card, there's no way he could've known that until he tried it, ya know? On 'paper', 750W should be PLENTY of power.

I say ... enjoy that 295 my friend. It's great at stock settings anyways, and when games come out that are so intense that you actually need to OC it, you can try a better psu...

BTW, you know that your two molex connections that go to the six pin should come from different strands off your psu, and not have anything else plugged into them, right? (I mean, a floppy or a fan or something shouldn't matter, but beyond that, probably not a good idea).

You don't need a 1000w PSU unless you're planning on going quad SLI, and even then 850w would work.

hey guys, after messing with my cpu all day, i am now starting with the GPU. I'm running the 182 drivers, and currently @ 630, 1425, 1048. temps right now while web browsing are in the mid to upper 50's C. I'm gonna run vantage and see what happens. I have heard that 90's is fine under load with this card, is this true? Ideally what would you want your card running , say vantage since it stresses the gpu, at? This way i know if i can keep going higher and higher without worrying about damaging my cards...thanks guys.

And if you guys think my settings do not make sense, please tell me, there is no reason behind my current GPU settings, i just picked them. So if you tell my I should change them, can you give a short reason why I need to...thanks .

The GTX 295 may be a sandwich, but it can be a grilled cheese Oh I fail at jokes lol

Anyways, Try to keep that fan speed around 70% when benchmarking. I keep mine at 70% when Gaming/Benchmarks, I never hit over 80c with Vantage or anygame period.

When Idle, and browsing youtube, naked girls , MS word.. I keep it at 50% fan speed, to reduce the noise.

Added to the list!

Hi mate. Make a fan-profile with Rivatuner to change fan speeds automatically for you. You only really have to do this once, and it doesnt take a lot of time.

I found a link on how to do this:
Much easier this way, rather than explaining it in here. I used this solution myself before mounting my accelero, as I personally dislike having to manually set fan speeds between gaming and desktop use.

Cheers

I actually have two 110cfm side mounted fans blowing directly onto the two video cards. I have them at full speed so I can't even hear the video card fans..lol....that being said, i usually leave the video card fan set on auto, that shouldn't be a problem should it?


Just a FYI, ever since i upgraded the side mounted case fans to (silverstone 110cfm's) my video cards have been running cool..while running vantage temps were in the 60's . with video card settings of 640/1520/1048. isn't that a good temp for having overclocking cards in quad sli?

I am really happy with those two new fans...and they only cost 16 bucks on new egg, they came with seperate controllers to lower them down, but i didn't even bother to install them, i just run them at 100% 24/7. and the set up with my case , the side mounted fans hit the sli video cards perfectly..
