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.
Pros: Excellent performance, as expected. I can play all of my games on the highest settings. Not much more to be said. Very few technical issues with older software. The cooler keeps the card at a steady 65-72 C depending on how hard I'm working it.
Cons: Fan's a little loud at times, but then again that's because everything else in my case is quieter and made by Noctua.
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.
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...
Summary: A good card for anyone who is looking for the fastest on the market with upgrade-ability (another 680 further down the road)
Pros: This card is extremely fast as many people have said. Can handle pretty much any game at 1920x1200 and only a heavily modded Skyrim will max the 2gb of memory at 2560x1440. Love the speed.
Cons: I recieved mine and it would lock-up every time I tried to load a starcraft II game (or almost every time) so I had to RMA it. I LOVE Newegg though with a blazing fast RMA process. Refunded my money within 4 business days of me dropping it off at the UPS store. Newegg time and time again has prov...
Summary: Remember that many games are CPU bottlenecked, not GPU bottlenecked. Remember this when system building. With an 3770k, 16gb of RAM, and this card I can pull a rock-solid (and I mean rock-solid) 60fps at all times in Skyrim at 1920x1200 with settings turned above the defaults for "ultra".
Pros: -Ridiculously fast -Comparatively cool-running compared to the previous chipset -Not a ridiculous power hog compared to previous gens of high-end cards.
Cons: -Comically big like most high-end cards. Make sure you don't need the PCI-E x1 slot you have directly below whichever slot you install this card in. -Pricey. I'm the type that only build a new rig every 3-4 years or so, and I go close to bleeding edge so it was worth it to me, but most people wil...
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.
