Negatives:

Graphial glitches. Games and drivers aren't perfect. Neither is the support. The majoritty of the time they are just little nusiances, at worse extremely annoying.

Motherborad bandwidth:

Is your board a 35/45/ or 38/48 ? A single 295 will run at x16 while two 275's may run at x8/x8. However it's debatable if there is any noticeable difference.

Your PSU:

Check your PSU can handle either a singe 295 or two 275's to begin with.

I have an 1100 watt PSU, so either option should be okay??

How can I tell the motherboard bandwidth for a ASUS Striker II Extreme? Are there variations?
