Post Coming Soon! The Nvidia GTX295

Nvidia GTX295 Performance Preview

It seems as soon as one manufacturer retaliates in the video card wars, the bar gets raised even further. This year has been a case of going for the top spot. Each time ATI or Nvidia come to the table with the latest and greatest, there is another card right over the horizon. We've travelled far enough, so that the horizon is right in front of us. The 4870x2 served as a wake up call and now Nvidia has an answer for that problem with the GTX 295.

Wowsa! "More than $400" may be just fine, considering its performance.

I've also read some other interesting things about this new card & drivers...
It will be able to use your older vidcard (9600 and above) for dedicated PhysX while keeping the GTX-295 for all the rest of the graphics rendering.

Also, your mobo won't have to be SLI compatible at all with no SLI bridge required! So this setup using your old graphics card for dedicated PhysX would work with my Badaxe 2 mobo!
Unfortunately for me my card is an 8800GTS so this wouldn't work in this setup...rrr!
