nVIDIA does it two!

Look out HD4870 X2, you are no longer competing and sometimes beating nVIDIA's best card, the GTX260+ has been replaced by the GTX 295.  Sporting an ungodly 1792MB of GDDR3 and a pair of what are essentially GTX 280 cores, this card is unbeatable.  If you splurge and pick up a pair of them (assuming you can handle ~650W draw from the cards alone), you can expect to play Crysis on high quality at 1920x1200 and get average frame rates in the high 60's, an unprecedented score.  Check out Ryan's full review of the new king of graphics

"The single card performance (though dual GPU of course) of the BFG GeForce GTX 295 1796MB solution was impressive and the

new card easily takes the top spot as the best performing single slot graphics card available. The Radeon HD 4870 X2 has

FINALLY been unseated after a full five and half months as the king of the hill. NVIDIA would have liked to have

accomplished this feat earlier than this but I imagine they were forced to wait for their 55nm process move (from the 65nm

that the GeForce GTX 280 and original 260 use) to fit inside the power envelope."
