    Because it's from a bargain basement manufacturer such as PNY, TwinTech, ECS etc. and OCUK get 'em cheap. There will still be warranty and the card should be the same quality as other brands.

    A 295 is a poor choice. Most definitely not worth it.

    Must admit I went for the 5870 over this card, even though the 295 is 10-15% faster on average I'd much rather not have the issues with multigpu setups, lower power and DX11 are a bonus.
