it doesnt matter how good the drivers are the scaling still sucks
even if you had even better rivers then NV got now the scaling with 4 cores would still be meaningless .
even newer cards that got way better scaling like the GTX480 almost get nothing buy adding a 4th core
even the 3rd core isnt adding allot of power to your system.
its not the best way its the worst if you ask me
if you think DX10 is good enough why do you need more power dont get a newer card ?
their is no DX10 game that can challenge the GTX295
the hardest games to run is crysis1 and metro2033 and I ran the with by GTX285 2GB just fine.
people whom are buying a 4 core setup most times want the best but way get a setup with so much power when you cant get use to that power.
you will run most DX10-9 games maxout on FPS way more then your screen is capable of... LOL
and most of the new heavy games will use DX11...
your system will need enormous amount of power
and will generate tons of heat
benchmark is not a game
2 cores in a banch scamle way way higher then in a game so ofcorse its getting a high score.
LOL the 295n is old and its out performed by newer cards lol
Every single point of yours has already been discussed at least twice but alright I will defend my point again
1.)I personally do not notice any difference between DX10 and DX11.
If you look a few pages back several youtube videos were posted showing DX10 vs DX11 and I just do not see it.
Also by the point games will really be able to take full advantage of DX10 and use it properly Kepler will already be released and that is when I will make my move.
2.)Scaling is a topic that goes to deep we could spend another 10 pages trying to determine who is right so I will list the facts once again.
a.)Yes a Dual Card has a harder time scaling than a single one that is a fact.
b.)What I would like to bring to your attention tough, is that the scaling problems and Micro Stutter regarding the GTX 295 has been greatly exaggerated in this thread as for some posts that tryed to described it , have never been reported characterizing those problems as that suvere.
3.)Leaving all those problems aside, a GTX 295 Quad SLI will always
give you more fps than a single GTX 580 regardless of its overclock.
4.)And lastly taking money and benefit into concern, in my case I am not really sure if I will really have an advantage getting the GTX 580 because I will have to sell it on Kepler release anyway.
But still valuing all your oppionions (except SimplytheBestÂ´s whom I multiple times asked not to post to this thread
anymore because of his ignorance!!!!) it is also a fact that the GTX 580 has more RAM saying it is better because it is newer is dumb,because what are the features?DX11?...eeehm what else you got?^^
Seriously though right now I am having a really hard time deciding ...a GTX 580 will give me a smoother gaming experience that is true but in my oppinion only in SLI ...as a single card it wonÂ´t always give me 60 fps avg like a Quad SLI 295 ( and yes that is considering MS would make it look like 20 fps
5.)It would just help me so much more if people could include some Bench screens and videos,pictures that would clearify the situation...reading x20 times 295 bad 580 good hasnÂ´t really helped so far. I need a professional and well thought through post with facts some screens and vids and maybe a final resumee xD
Thank you all for the effort though
I hope I will be able to decide soon!
Oh yeah one thing
oes this switching your old card for a new one feature from EVGA limit to USA or is it available to all countries like mine (Austria?))Edited by Kung Pow - 3/1/11 at 12:06am
