anyways I can convince you to upgrade to a 280 zlojack? :P

I dont think I'll touch the 295 or the 285.... unless there is some major, major improvements over the 280/260.

I've got a 260 216, so I don't think the 280 would give me much of a boost.

I'm going to run with the single card for now and see what the numbers look like on the 285s.

If they don't do anything for me, I'll grab a couple more 260 216s and be happy.

I like EVGA because I can watercool them and overclock them and not void the warranty, but the price on that BFG Maxcore is insane!!!

I agree, that BFG Maxcore is insane at that price. both those cards make me regret getting a CF board lol
