Relative performance

Reasons to consider GeForce GTX 295

Based on an outdated architecture (Nvidia Tesla), there are no performance optimizations for current games and applications.
PhysX support, however PhysX performance on newest games may be poor.

Reasons to consider GeForce GTX 670

119 watts lower power draw. This might be a strong point if your current power supply is not enough to handle the GeForce GTX 295 .
This is a much newer product, it might have better long term support.
Around 110% higher average synthetic performance.
Supports PhysX.
Supports G-Sync.
Supports ShadowPlay (allows game streaming/recording with minimum performance penalty).
Based on an outdated architecture (Nvidia Kepler), there are less performance optimizations for current games and applications.

GeForce GTX 670

HWBench recommends GeForce GTX 670
