GTX 580 vs GTX 295 SLI - Page 9  

post #81 of 230
Kungpow

I had a GTX 295 and tried 4way SLI with them ...
Ended getting a single GTX 580 ...

You'll have lots of problems in scalling, performance and frustration ...
Don't spend your money on the 2nd GTX295.

It's better to keep your GTX295 for a couple of months until you got enough money to step up to newer cards.

Yes, GTX295 is an awesome card, i loved mine and i used it for 2 years. But i must admint, GTX580 gives you a smoother gaming experience, less power and heat ... and well... if you had a second GTX580 it will crush the 295 Quad Sli.

So, for summary, i was on your position. I had a GTX295 with EK waterblock. I thought about a Quad SLI ... had the luck of a friend borrowing his GTX295 for testing.

After a week in test, i decided to sell my card and get a 580 ...
And if you want to max out games in terms of AA ... VRAM will have a tremendous impact in performance...

(but as a last suggestion and one that i haven't seen in this thread yet, Why don't you NOT get any other card until the next gen cards arrives? No game has really put the 295 in the grave yet, why not save the money and wait (Hell i've see people rocking 8800's and they are perfectly fine with them) ? If you want the "fastest system" you need to shell out money for it (people don't get Sli-580's for free) and you've demonstrated you are not up to that task.)
People I reall appreciate your concern and attempts help!!!!!!!
But what most of you seem to misunderstand is that I do not require your oppinion on wheter or not to get Quad SLI much more where I can find a second GTX 295 with water block for low price

I seem to be forced to repeat myself^^.
I have got a friends 295 too ..for testing Quad SLI.

AA,Scaling and Micro Stuttering are no problem with up to date drivers.
And for the last time ...I made that decision because I wanted to save money and still have bigger performance gain than a single 580.
I will spend serious money when Kepler arrives ..580 is just not worth it in my oppinion.

Also every game that supports SLI automatically supports Quad SLI is basic logic. And the new drivers add a SLI profile to almost every game.


GTX 580 Power Consumption here:http://www.geeks3d.com/20110202/gefo...-very-limited/
350W for an averagely overclocked 580.

Pl just give me suggestions for good 295s I do not require anything else.

... so ... why da hell did you open this topic anyway " GTX580 vs GTX295" ?!

As for GTX295, they are all the same reference design ... not worth trying to choose the best ... and ... you won't have the warranty anymore so ... just choose the best priced card. I went with XFX.

Kung pow just admit that YOU are the one that has no knowledge of computer hardware. I build computer/fix for a living and had the gtx295. You dont listen because your living in a dream world where the gtx 295 is still relevant. One gtx480 destroys your little 295. Its a good video card for low resolutions but once you get a 1920x1080 and higher its worthless in newer games. Stop showing videos that only prove this.

Ok that was your last comment filled with stupidity and unknowledge.
Please stop posting to my thread...at this point I just can´t explain to you further that you know nothing about either the GTX 295 nor any other card.

I will not waste my time with you any longer.

Look at the previous site omg the GTX 580 score 23.400 in vantage and my GTX 295 scores 23.076xD nuff said!

It is still a great card just because you had no idea how to handle it does not mean nobody does.
Be quiet now and troll somewhere else it just starts to get annoying reading your worthless posts that aren´t true.
You are just an average noob that thinks buying the newest means having the best..and understands nothing about overclocking and handling the material.That is my profilization of you.


So people I found an unused card on ebay for 50 $ xD
The eVGA Geforce GTX 295 CO-OP Super Clocked EDITION.
This card seems to be especially overclockable
I hope it will reach my current scores of 712/1512/1215 though

How about you learn to read my sig rig, I spent prob less on it then you did on yours. Its called bargaining and knowing what hardware gives you the best bang for your buck. I spent less than $300 each on my gtx480 which even one will do things your dual 295 cant do. You have low memory which causes it to slow down on high resolutions screens with high AA, Getting dual gtx295's doesn't increase your memory you still 898mb which in todays games is not enough. If you dont want advice dont put up threads asking for it.

I do not want your advice because you are clueless about your own rig omg.
And I have stated more than once that I also do not want you to post in my thread anymore.

I am done wasting my time with you.
You are not worth arguing with because of an obvious lack in basic GPU knowledge.
Again stop posting here.

I score higher Vantage scroe with 1 x 295 than your 480.
And I play everything maxed out and never had problems.
I have posted a video that disproves any of your stupid accusations.
So please troll somewhere else!

Also regarding the Video Memory arguement....if my VRAM should one day be insufficient ....the card will be aided by the ram ...and since I have 12 gigs 2000 Mhz DDR3 Hyper X mem I will not encounter any problems.

People say something about the card I made an offer for on ebay.

I'd try to get it for 150 euros that'd be reasonable. He's not going to take less than 130 I guess, or else there's something seriously wrong with that card.
