    I won on a lottery ticket, 20 000 SEK (About 1700 USD)

    And since the rest of my computer is considered "Overpowered" my graphics card is still kinda old and crappy, im thinking of getting a GeForce GTX 295 1792 MB if there isn't any better...

    How about getting 2?

    Also, how overpowered it is? I bet there's at least 1 thing that you can also improve

    The 295 is indeed the pinnacle of consumer video hardware. Though it is SLI in a box, and has all the disadvantages of that. Personally I'd go for a 285 but wtf.

    4890 is decent too at a more digestible price.

    If you're getting two of anything get two single cards, as the advantage of quad SLI is even more questionable than plain 2 way SLI. Same goes for Crossfire. (Or just get SLI or Crossfire in a box with the 295 and 4870X2)

    get three GTX 285s.

    Edited:

    no wait buy two ASUS MARS 295s. They are two 285s on a single PCB so you can have four GTX 285 GPUs.

    what's the rest of your system though

    Edited:

    you say "overpowered" but that could just mean overpowered for checking emails and using IE6

    He didn't completely win. He probably got like all the numbers except 2.

    I'd say a 4870X2. If you play GTA4, there's errors with the SLI configs. I haven't seen any problems though with a crossfire of ATI cards.

    What are your current specs, you could get an awesome monitor that actually needs 2 295's or 3 285's (most powerful option)

    Seriously you have the oddest PC i've ever seen, sick amount of RAM, decent HDD, decent CPU, and (compared to the rest) HILARIOUS GPU, and a fucking waste of money PSU.

    3 GTX 285's.

    The GTX 295 is 2 GTX 260's bolted together.

    Why are you guys posting newegg links, he's in Sweden. And $1700 in computer parts here almost certainly doesn't equal 20 000 SEK in parts where he is.

    Get a 4870 1GB or 4890 1GB and save the rest of the money for when you actually need it.

    You're using a wrong color profile. Fix it.

    gtx 295 is not the best, its 2 260 gpu's stacked onto each other

    if you really want overkill get yourself a tri sli build of gtx 285's

    or crossfire 2x 4870x2 if you like to play gmod on 999 fps
