Got a new Nvidia 295GTX. The 1st GPU shows 384 Shaders, 4GB of memory with GDDR4...but when I select the 2nd one, it shows the regular 275GTX Specs.

Um... How are we suppose to see your pic while it is still on your PC.... :p
You need to upload it to an image hosting service.

Edit: OK, is it a second hand card or something?
Looks like a messed up bios.

Are you using an Administrator account?

Looks like you're using a regular account with no direct access to hardware.

The card is just a plain OEM Nvidia card. How do I fix bios?

It's most likely a GPU-Z problem.

Try an app such as Everest or MSI Afterburner, and/or get your hands on GPU-Z 038. See what they say.
