NVIDIA's 200 series of graphics cards brings cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities together to provide best-in-class performance. The GTX295 boasts 2nd Generation NVIDIA Unified Architecture solution for all your most demanding graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and is equipped with PCI-Express 2.0 interface for the latest system. The GTX295 supports Quad SLI to multiply boosts graphic performance by working with another dual-core GTX295. Supports for DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1, NVIDIA's PureVideoHD, CUDA and PhysX-ready are also built in to render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity.

The card's core clock runs at 576MHz relieving your CPU of pixel-crunching duty. Data surges through the GTX295's 480 (240 x 2) stream processors which are fed by 1792MB of 896-bit 1998MHz GDDR3 memory. Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors, or output to your home HDTV via the HDMI connectors for maximum flexibility.

The GTX295 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If your motherboard can take it, the GTX295 can dish it out.

  • newegg NEOSEEKER RECOMMEND "This is the first video card we've reviewed that has come with an HDMI cable, and is a welcome sight -- these come in very handy, and you'd probably have to buy one (eventually) if it didn't come with the card. …If you need the fastest card you can get right now, and you can afford it, then the card to get is the BFG GTX 295."
  • newegg GURU3D TOP PICK "I'm a single GPU kinda guy. But I have to admit, the GeForce GTX 295 took me by surprise... I really seem to like it. The performance is astounding, the price is reasonable and any other variable I mentioned in this review is just looking good. Mind you that BFG will also go even more extreme and build water-cooled version of the GTX 295, very interesting. BFG covers your product with a life-time warranty and made the bundle really interesting. If you decide to place 499 smackaroonies on the table for this card... dude, nobody will hold a grudge against you, in fact everybody will be nodding wisely at you. You'd be making a very valid choice."
  • newegg HEXUS 81% "The fastest single graphics card in the world. Architectural efficiency results in decent temperatures and lower-than-expected power draw. Comes complete with framerate bragging rights. NVIDIA set out to win back the single-card performance crown and has undoubtedly succeeded." "We consider any product score above '50%' as a safe buy. The higher the score, the higher the recommendation from HEXUS to buy. Simple, straightforward buying advice."
  • newegg 2nd Generation NVIDIA Unified Architecture Second generation architecture features enhanced processor cores that provide incredible shading horsepower, cranking out 50% more gaming performance over the previous generation.
  • newegg Quad SLI Technology Get the power of 4 NVIDIA GeForce GPUs with a pair of BFG GeForce GTX 295 graphics cards!

5 out of 5 eggsreally Late review!! :D

Pros: 1. Amazing fast, lighting fast
2. Very well built
3. Overclocks like a beast
4. VERY stable
6. Loves power
7. Very quiet
8. Dual PCB
9. best freakin card for it's time IMO.

Cons: 1. Very heavy card
2. Gets crazy hot, like 95c - 100c hot when maxed. Max temp is 105c they say so I was in the safe still.
3. Air flow could have been better designed I think for the amount of heat this jewel pushed out. This is a dual GPU in one which makes a crazy amount of heat.

Other Thoughts: I bought this back in 2009 and just now realized I never did a review on it so I figured wth :)

This was the best card I think I had ever owned. I have since owned EVGA x2 GTX 560's and just recently purchased a EVGA GTX 680 yesterday to replace the 560's.

I sold the GTX 295 on E...b....a....y to a kid who wanted to SLi them. After he got the card and hooked it all up he sent me a video of it and the performance was amazing for how old those cards are. it's good to see an old card getting new life in a system still :) :)

3 out of 5 eggsToo Phat

Pros: It is decent card but not more than that. It is far too fat. It was easy to install and it worked immediately and has proven to be reliable but considering the price, this is not enough for it to be more than three eggs IMO.

Cons: Noisy and delivers substantial heat to the inside of the PSU. Inconvenient to install water cooling because of the sandwiched board design.

In my system, I can't install more than one fat card without losing other slots that I need, Eventually when Nvidia gets their act together and releases the single board 295 equivalent for Fermi, I will give this 295 to my wife (who is now struggling with a 2GB GTX285) or to Goodwill (since she probably won't like the noise) and get a couple of single board Fermi equivalents to the 295. Better to have the coop (or a GTX480 if you do not mind waiting). Nvidia has really dropped the ball.

You really need a case with extra physical graphics card supports such as are offered for some Lian Li chassis. These monster cards are a result of inadequate design (and yes that includes ATI). Both companies are doing the least they can, not the most. They could do much better.

Other Thoughts: The PSU requirements that many people claim for such graphics cards are plain _silly_.

Even at the highest loads, the power at the input of my PSU never exceeds 550 watts, This is with an 8 disk raid doing a disk test AND burnP6 running on a 4.0GHz i7 975 AND also running a graphics test.

The particular PSU is about 80% efficient which means the delivered power is about 80% of 550 or 440 watts. Most PSU's are most efficient at about 50% to 75% load. So this argues that from an average load viewpoint, a 650W supply would be more than enough. But the problem is not only the average power rating that a system uses, the instantaneous current requirements also matter.

The instantaneous power that can be delivered depends largely on the MOBO design (needs sufficient number of well placed bulk capacitors). Also, every connector between the PSU and the MOBO impedes changes current flow. If logic prevailed, no one would modular PSU's but clearly, PSU's are not choosen logically

5 out of 5 eggsMisleading reviews

Pros: I traded this up from a 9800GX2 and the first card was getting BSOD. Unlike the 2 reviews below I obtained excellent service and the next card has been working for nearly a year. Unless your game needs more ram you pretty much can run anything. In fact there are times I take my son's card out to play crysis on my machine.

Cons: Energy consumption but all dual gpu cards gulp. Never have seen an 8800 gtx with TV output so I don't beleive the reviewer. The GTS250 is a $150 card and uses a G92 GPU that is superclocked to over 700 mhz. Faster than a 8800GTX on PCIE 1.0.

Other Thoughts: Not sure about the new single PCB cards. I am a dealer and have not sold any of these since they never are in stock lately to sell due to Nvidia coming out soon with Fermi. I run the fan manually with Nvidia tools 6.05 at 70% and my son's card never overheats as a result. Deployed in an Antec 1200 case with Q9650, 790 ultra, and CP850 PSU, Seagate 640gb 7200.11.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away from BFG

Pros: The GTX295 is a great card, but don't buy this card or any other from BFG.

BFG's main sell is it's warranty. But that warranty is worthless, and certainly isn't worth paying the premium for it. I bought a $500 graphics card from BFG. Now video cards rarely go bad, but in the few cases when they do, you'd think BFG would make good on it's warranty and send you the same model or an equivalent model.

This never happens. BFG will always send you an inferior card that's not even in the same model series as your old card. In my case, my old card was an 8800 GTX with a TV output. The successor for that card would be the 9800 GTX with TV output. Either card would have worked. Instead, BFG gave me a crappie GTS 250 with no TV output. That's a $110 card to replace the card that originally cost $500, and was $300 on Ebbay at the time of the replacement.

Cons: When I called to complain, it took over two hours on hold to get to a human. And then they basically said 'f you. We'll give you a adapter and that's it. The adapter, of course, was useless since the card itself does not provide a TV out signal.

I've talk about this with friends, and all of them had the same experience with BFG. It's not like anyone expects a better video card as a replacement, but you do expect something equivalent. The entire BFG warranty is a bait-and-switch rip-off.

Other Thoughts: Given how rarely video cards go bad -- they almost always just become obsolete -- it makes no sense to pay a penny more for the BFG brand.

Worse of all, their improperly overclocked video card took down my motherboard and rendered my whole system a brick.

BFG: bad quality, bad customer service, bad warrantee, bad experience.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat High-end Card

Pros: I can't recommend this board highly enough. It handles everything I've thrown at it easily and even manages to stay cool in the process. My old 9800GTX ran extremely hot, and this outperforms it and runs cooler, too. It's simply a top-of-the-line card. BFG has excellent support (not that I've needed it for this card). It was a piece of cake to get it up and running - no issues or anything.

Cons: It's expensive, and large, but that's a given with any card like this, so it can't really count against it.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have room in your case for this monster of a card, as well as a power supply capable of powering it. It can handle anything thrown at it, but that comes with certain physical requirements. (A case with support for heavy cards is nice here, due to the weight) If your computer can fit it and handle it, though, you really can't beat this card. Highly recommend this!

1 out of 5 eggsCard was DOA

Pros: Good specs, on paper at least...

Cons: Card was dead on arrival. It had an indicator light indicating I didn't have proper power connected, but my 1000W PSU (with plenty of proper plugs for this card) is working fine for lots of other things. Newegg accepted my return as a defective unit, and refunded my money since there was no similar replacement in stock.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Power!

Pros: I love this card! The thing is a beast. It's HUGE and heavy, but it really kicks games where it hurts though. I can max out almost everything including Crysis, with interesting results.

Cons: Doesn't like FSX, Was the most expensive thing in my computer, and I didn't get it from Newegg. At the time Newegg didn't have any in stock and it cost even more than what I payed at the time I also got another brand but its no longer posted here. Also I have some strange BSOD with drivers, hoping latest batch fixed that issue.

Other Thoughts: BUY THIS CARD!
