Summary: i use this card to power 3 1920x1080p(5670x1080) monitors. it works FANTASTIC. i can max most games and get 60 FPS. you can use any of the 4 outputs to do it too. i currently use 2 HDMIs(one with a display port to hdmi adapter, it even passes sound) and dvi. i have an i5 2500k to back it up. only games like battlefield 3 i have not been able to do 3x1080p screens and keep 60fps. but lower some settings, like shadows or anti aliasing and you can get it to go up to 60FPS.
Summary: I NEVER write reviews. But this card is amazing. I was very skeptical at first, spending $400+ on a 'lottery card' as people were calling it. But with the new updates from asus this card has been golden. OC'd it a little with no problems, haven't pushed it very far yet. I can play ALL my games on super high settings, there's shaders and particles I never knew existed! I'm in love. Definately getting a second for sli when I have extra money. LOVE IT!!
Summary: OK, first things first. I have to admit I was so worried about this video card, specially after reading all those forums, reviews and comments that i've read while doing my research. Specially about that over-overclock out of the box issue, that instability issue, and specially that red screen issue. For my surprise and peace of mind.
Summary: Pros: With all the negative reviews I've seen I still wanted to chance it since I have been waiting for this card since it was announced. Mine came with a boost of 1293 out of the box that I discovered when benchmarking. Well I fired up the Heaven benchmark and it crashed right away! I obtained the latest version of Precision X and put the power target all the way up (117% for my card).
its can be a lottery with this card mine runs stable at 1241mhz out of box

Summary: I had a Zotac gtx 680 reference card before which would not overclock no matter what I did , I sold that card to buy a gtx 690 but came to my senses and decided I dont game enough to justify 1000 dollars on a video card. So I seraches reveiws looking for best gtx 670/680 again which would be good overclocker and this one fits the bill perfectly.
Summary: Pros: -Quiet fans. They are pretty much silent when compared to my case fans which are quiet. This is my first silent card. This is my biggest selling point. I love it. -Cool. Under load this card never exceeds 65C. -Backplate. Not a big deal. Looks nice. Adds a little more stability. -Higher quality components compared to a reference card. For example, compare the heatsink on this one to a reference heatsink (look up pictures with google). -Fast.
Summary: Tested all the benchmarks out of the box with the latest drivers as of the date of this review. Heaven 1920X1080 Tess:Nor Shd:Hi Ani:16X AA:8X got 58FPS. 3DMark11 performance(free option) graphics score 9500. No crashing yet, runs cool and very quite. A++ card overall Cons are the power coming out the top and the card is heavy and sags some. Time to go play.
