Default XFX Geforce GTX 285 and 295 Tested

It is a widespread opinion among PC enthusiasts and devoted gamers that a graphics card upgrade must be accompanied with an upgrade of the whole platform in order to provide enough CPU power to the graphics subsystem so that the latter didnít stay idle. As a matter of fact, this opinion is oftener proved to be wrong in practice than confirmed by tests. And I am going to check this out again in todayís review because Iíve got two new graphics cards from XFX, the fastest single-processor GeForce GTX 285 and the fastest dual-processor GeForce GTX 295, and two platforms with quad-core CPUs. So, I will try to find out how important a fast CPU and system memory are for these cards and will also compare them between each other.
