Summary: Great card - somewhat pricey but great; I installed it into the system I built and it delivers outstanding performance. Can't say more than any other rater has already said except, I would buy this card again, in an instant.
Summary: This Graphics Card Is Epic. You Definitely Get Your Bang For Your Buck. I was a little scared at first because of the random red screens i was having, but that was soon rectified with the newest drivers from the nvidia site. Here are some of my results with this card. I use it with a 1400x900 resolution LED monitor.
Summary: This same card is advertised at a few places for around two hundred less. I have an i7 CPU as well, 850w silent pro gold series, Z68-V-Pro mb, two sticks of ram totally 8 gb on the board with a CPU cooler as well. My case is the smilodon and has the best cooling you could ask for in a left side clear case so you can see the inside plus the right side comes down to do bench testing without disconnecting a thing.
Summary: using in my sr-2 with dual xeon hexacore, water chilled cooling, 48 gigs of ram, 9 hd's 4 solid state one 10,000 rpm raptor, and a few 3 terabyte storage units. aqua tuning water chiller, 2 huge german e.k.space water cool radiators two iwaki pumps over clocked mb to 4.56 mhz this is my 2nd add on 680 also water cooled by same system, I use it for rendering, blazing fast.....crazy fast..using it in photo shop is unreal..
Summary: This card its magnificent, it can run every posible game at this moment without problems. Asus did a great job with the package of the card, really good looking. Apart from that this its just like any other 680 reference card in the market, with 3 year warranty.
Summary: First off I am using this with: i7 2600k @ 3.8 16 Gigs of RAM at 1600MHZ 850 Watt PSU My performance in games using EVGA Precision X monitoring. Keep in mind these numbers are WITHOUT OC. With modest OC expect a 5-10 FPS increase. Witcher 2: All settings maxed, Ubersampling off - Average of 60 FPS. Gorgeous. All settings maxed, ubersampling on 30-50 FPS. Still very playable.
Summary: This is a great video card. Plays all games on max settings without even breaking a sweat. The 670 GTX's are out and about in full force, but if you can swing a few more dollars to get this, I would. I am not saying anything bad about the 670's...they're a good chip. And the 690 GTX's are a dream. WOW. I've been a PC gamer since the early 90's and this card will be great for me, for the foreseeable future. Happy gaming all.
Summary: I'm not an nvidia fan neither AMD. I simply buy what it's best at the moment . Period One thing that I learned is waiting enough for getting the right card so that's why I didn't buy the 7970 even when I already bought the 6970. I'm running starcraft 2 and battlefield 3 without any problem with low temps and insane FPS (SC2 at 150fps avergage). My main concern is that my box came on a weird state.
