hmm, yes but not really. It's like they took 2x 260, pinched something from the 280s and welded them together.

maybe I need to point this out a little more LOL Allow me...take a look at this pic you sent now...and tell me whats wrong

4.2ghz i7 is still a considerable clock to acheive don't worry about that and it is of course a full 400mhz per core faster than my setup, but more importantly its a bench with three most likely volt modded 280's. with the fans screaming their heads off.

I am not getting my knickers in a twist my friend I'm merely trying to get my facts straight, and super high overclocks are meaning very little as I have been trying to point out in the most civil way.

I am attempting to make my own decisions, to see if I indeed beleive the 295 is in fact a much better choice...if it is I will switch, I have the oppertunity to switch now if I wish at a cost of sweet nothing, i'm just not convinced its a wise move, but many here think it would be, I just wouldn't want to swap a very good card for a gloryfied gx2 or something lesser than what I just got rid off 2x gtx380 OCX in SLI.

I just cannot see how the 295 is going to be better than 2x 280's and since I'm finding the 4870x2 better I think it would appear to be a bad move...are you getting my drift???

It's a 965 at about 4.2, which aint ground breaking - it may aswell not be an extreme, and merely 3g.

Does a decent beer mat under 28k.

which if you guys know is the same bit rate as the gtx 260 right???

I mean this is just 2 gtx260 put together right??
Not quite true... It has the same memory bandwidth and capacity as the 260 but it has a lot more shaders.. Think it's at 480 or something. The clocks are the same as the 260's but they easily overclock to 280 levels and quite a bit higher on top.

I see where ur coming from.

From what I could see about the submission places and reviews, ur 2x280 results seemed somewhat off m8.

seems strange I must admit though, even I expected more from them but even when I had my qx9770 rig it was the same, if my memory serves me correct about 1k lower cpu was @4ghz.

just got this windows 7 running all seems good gonna see what difference it makes and gonna try vantage see what my 4870x2 thinks to it, sure I posted a vantage score on here a while back with my gtx's will have to have a little search.

We could do with a Win7 beta thread in the OS section tbh for people to stick in findings and such.
