I built my rig in July just getting into pc gaming, and I didn't realize that if I wanted to max everything at 1920x1080 I would probably need a 295.

I went with the 275, and it has been sufficient so far, but now with BC2 out, I am wishing i could totally max the AA and HBAO.

If i added another 275 do you guys things that would be enough?? Also would i see considerable performance gains on 2 275's? I know my cpu won't bottleneck as I have an i7 @3.8

It would be more than plenty. Given you play graphics oriented games like FPSes or Racers.

Yes, that does help. I say go for it! I always liked the 275s.

275 for sure. After the Fermi release, where the 275 prices may drop.

I'd say wait, Fermi will be released soon, and depending on the benches and that a 470 might be a better option for DX11 and future proofing a little..

This is one reason i didnt order up a 275, I dont see going from DX10 to DX10 this late in the game as being worthwhile when I likely will want aNOTHER card in a year for DX11...I'd rather wait and pony up for a new 470 right now and not buy another card for a few years...
