The gtx 295 wins hands down. Its just that the 4870x2 is cheaper and if you don't need the extra horsepower, a better buy. A single pcb is technically the same but i believe it has a lower manufacturing cost. But the price and everything else is exactly the same.

so why don`t the price drop when making it with single pcb...and i saw on youtube some one ran crossfire with 4870x2 and a 4870 would a gtx 295 work with a gtx 275

on a technicality , a 4870x2 and a 4870 cross fired is the same as 3 4870's cross fire x . because the 4870x2 is actauly crossfire

 

ATI have always been the cheaper rival to Niveda throughout the age of time

:withstupid: Though for how little more powerful the 295 is, the 4870x2 is a better buy when you can get them for like 250 on ebay (where do you think mine came from :P)

The price doesn't drop because the 295 is the strongest card out there...hahahaha, just kidding, it's just because it's nvidia :lol:

why is it because of the clocks or something else...?

Simply because NVIDIA does not allow SLI to run on two different cards. If you want a 3-way SLI setup, you must buy three GTX275 instead.

 

But it may change soon. There is a guy who was enable SLI on a P45 mobo using a GTX260 and a 8600GT. See here.
