Summary: It's a BEAST. It's huge (I mean I had to take a dremel saw to cut out the case just to fit it in) and uses 3 slots, but.... Every game I have at 1920x1080 on Ultra. It's really quiet, whisper quiet. It can easily be overclocked with the software included (even above stock OC). It has a metal protection, making it very robust. Extremely cool compared to most other cards on the market ...
Summary: For any gamer this card is a great choice. Although it might not have the standards the new 780ti has, I doubt anyone (except for crisis 3) will be playing games that the gtx680 can't handle fully maxed out graphics at 60fps and above. I have been useing this card for about 3 months and all I can say is how much I love it, in most cases it beats the gtx690 because of the fact that a most pc games either don't use SLI, or aren't configured very well for SLI.
Summary: first of all this thing is massive, occupies 3 expansion slots on the case so make sure you have a big enough case, that being said its a really good card with enough arse to run everything on max. Build is an asus crosshair v formula z amd black edition fx 8150 8 core 16 gigs mushkin 2400 mhz O.C.
Summary: Purchased this for my boyfriend as an early Christmas gift as he was looking to improve his graphics even further. After installing this card, he went from 45 FPS to 91 FPS - doubling his FPS. This video card also ran cooler than his previous set up and gave his in-game experience a well deserved boost.
