keep your 295. no need to upgrade until the 5870x2 comes out.

If you already have a 295, then definitely stick with it, If you don't have a card, then definitely go for the 5870 over the 295- much better value, efficiency, power consumption etc- the 295 remains the champ by a margin, but it's a dual GPU pig

A.C.V.?

Anyways, if you're planning the build, then get a ATI 5870. Of course if you fold, then you're pretty much limited to NVIDIA if you want more folding power.

Well since you don't have a card then for the time being get a 5870 and if possible a 5870 X2. Nvidia has nothing right now to compete in the high end unless they lower prices.

you already have top of the top card!!! fastest of the fastest card!!!! THE MOST POWERFUL SINGLE UNIT CARD ON THE PLANET! GTX 295!

if that is not enough for you, ebay your 295 and buy three GTX 285 and tri-sli it! THE MOST POWERFUL GRAPHIC SETUP ON THE PLANET!




edit:

define "best" if you mean fastest and powerfulest regardless of price then....

fastest of the fastest single unit card on the planet right now is GTX 295

fastest of the fastest graphic setup solution on the planet right now is three aka 3x aka tri 5870 crossfireX
