The CFx set up consumes more power, and runs hot at stock fan speeds, so i had them running high and the GTX can handle every thing beautiful and smooth with all modern games! runs as good as a 570 with my set up.. I do run test and i can determine that my GTX is not Dx 11 but can handle any modern game!

So now my question is What can I SLI this with! I like my gtx295 because it can handle any game better then i expected, but kinda slowish with the big heavy games!

People have driver issues on both sides. 95% of the time when someone starts rambling on about how terrible drivers are (for either side), it's completely based on user error.

I quit buying nVidia cards after the 7900GT since they always fail after a year or two.
1 of the 4 nVidia I've had, didn't die while owning them.
4 of the 4 ATI I've had, didn't die while owning them.
You are right it is user error, and I have never had a card fail on me from ether side, and I like both! Both have their even drawbacks and have awesome cards!
