W00t, my 4870X2's are still easily in the fight!

The GTX295 is a bit of a disappointment in that factor, but still seems like a great offer regardless!

But it makes whatever card you currently have depreciate so you can't sell it for very much to compensate for your new purchase

Indeed. I think this is going to be my new modus operandi with video cards from now on.

I already write off my GPUs as worthless because the next one is always out in 2 months. I look at it as I can buy a replacement for cheap.

Yep and it looks like my GTX 280 SLI config is still faster than all three....figured that prior to seeing Benches anyhow, I'll be holdig tight on my investment until I see the GTX 3xx Series.

EDIT: Just went over to Evga Web Site - I could step-up one of my 280's to a 295 for about $75.
Still slower than a 280 SLI config though....could always go this route and give TriSli a whirl!!!

Dude, Tri SLi, or at least till the GTX 350 is out. I think it's supposed to be a GTX280 GX2, but I'm not sure. Theres an EVGA GTX 280 on sale now for $350 after $20 MIR, I would go that way.
