    So, here is the situation...

    Buddy drop a few grand on a new pc

    He orders one with a GTX295 as they are currently pimp shit

    Company delays order week after week claiming the GTX295 is on back order

    Month goes by and he calls to bitch and they tell him they have no idea when the card will come in, that their orders are being filled very slowly, though he should be high on the list now.

    They offer him dual GTX275's in SLI and a 20$ credit (lol ~1% back) or he can continue to wait for the 295.

    He calls me with his panties in a twist asking what he should do


    What say you ot?

    I told him that he wont be happy without the latest and greatest and that he should just cancel the whole build and wait for the next gen to drop as his current computer is not that bad.

    Cliffs for myself.

    295 clocked slower then the 275
    275 in sli hotter much more power consumption uses more pci slots

    So, I told him that unless he wants to run quads at some point in the near future to go ahead and take the dual 275's and bitch at them for holding his money for over a month and not even starting on the build as now his case is on back order from the order sitting so long. I really feel that they should offer him something more then the 20$ price difference of the video cards.

    Ati just announced the first 1ghz gpu. Might want to look into that.

    But then again im so far off the page in the gpu market that i have no idea whats best anymore. I play games now on ps3/360.
