Don't get the GTX 295. Learn from me lol. I bought the GTX 295 for $669 and its not worth the money with a i7 build. Maybe if you're using a board that can't do CF/SLI and you're crazy rich a GTX 295 would be a good idea. On a i7 build there are better options, like
2 GTX 275's
3 GTX 260's
Even 2 GTX 260 216's for $200 less would be just as good as the 295.
Or you could get a lower end psu like a 850w and a cheaper mobo, and get GTX 285 sli for the same price as the 295.
Just my advice
