    Currently I have 2 x EVGA 880GTX's running in SLI, as I have not been paying attention to the upgrade market lately would someone be able to suggest what would be an upgrade for replacing this - am I looking at a GTX 295?

    Does it have to be Nvidia? The ATI 5870 would be your best option.

    No it doesn't need to be Nvidia, I have always been Nvidia but happy to look at all possibilities.

    Well if you want to save money you should go for the 5850 and overclock it to near the speed of the 5870. The 5870 isn't worth the £100 premium.

    If you want to see a really nice performance/value increase, I would try and last untill the Nvidia GT300 release. Either those cards hit the spot and you could get one of them, or ATI's cards will have (hopefully) droped in price to more affordable levels. ATI may have some other great cards out by then, who knows.

    Ofc if you have lots of cash now just get a HD 5870.

    My plan is to wait :)
