    Hi Guys,
    I have a GTX 260 216 OC to 666/1405/1150 and want to get some more grunt for upcoming titles. I am trying to find out if I will get a higher frame rate with a GTX 295 than say a GTX285 or not because of CPU limitations. If I got the same frame rate with a GTX 285 as with a GTX 295 with my CPU it would be a big waste. Thanks all for your help.

    If you intend to use high resolutions with AA/AF, the 295 will benefit you.

    Sorry I forgot to add that my Q6600 is OC to 3.0Ghz and I run 1650x1050 max settings if possible
