I can easily tell the difference between 30 and 60 FPS. The reason I say 60 is because that's the refresh rate of my monitor, and I won't be able to see anything higher.

Some games just favor some cards more. I'm not sure why. Dead Space loved the 4870 1GB. But, the Core 216 beat it in just about every other benchmark.

It actually comes out January 9th. Source.

It's actually 60 FPS. One eye can't see anything past 30 FPS. So, I don't know what you're talking about unless you're playing with only one eye open.

It's actually the standard for most of the newer monitors. You must be running an ancient CRT at 85 hertz.

Doesn't matter if you can't tell the difference of 60 and 200FPS. Get a really graphic demanding part of a game and that 60 FPS drops to 20 while the 200 FPS drops to 160. Will you see a difference now? I think so. Same thing with refresh rates.

the 295 has a memory speed of 1000 MHz / 2000 MHz which the 4870x2 has a memory speed of 900 MHz.

there actually VERY similar in specs.. same shader speed, same ROD.. but actually the GTX295 has ALOT higher benchmarks than any ATI GPU out there atm, in most games it out performs the ati card by far...almost double the FPS.
it almost doubles the fps in a few games, but that's not the norm as there are a few that they run almost neck and neck, so realistically the 4870x2 gets about 70% of the fps the 295 gets...
