A single GPU is going to be "bottlenecked" by his system? So what you're saying is, no game can gain any FPS by going from his GTX 285 to GF100 (a card which I assume you've already tested)? That's what bottleneck insinuates. I challenge that claim, making any part of a system faster will cause some improvement, especially something like a GPU for a GAME.

According to what I have seen, its not expected to be faster than the GTX 295 or the 5970, but more against the 5870.

Wait..its like..10 days away. Its 1920 x 1080 btw.

GTX 295 is overkill w/ anything under 2560 x 1440. If you want an upgrade sell the GTX 295 and buy 2 x GTX 480's.

The 5870 loses only by a little bit to the 295 in a lot of benches and even wins a few so if the 480 ends up being 10%+ faster it should beat the 295, Ofcourse anyone who already has a 295 doesn't really need to upgrade though.

So if its faster than a 5870 roughly it will be that much faster than the 295. Great to have a idea, Im sure the reviews will be vs that card and other DX11 cards and the 295 wont be listed anywhere.
