Summary: I have to knock an egg off till Nvidia get's their act together and stabilizes the reference drivers. I am sure as hell not going to put any Asus ware on my build.
Pros: It does everything people say on here, and then some more.
Cons: Driver stability. Nvida seems to be releasing new revs to the driver on a nightly basis and was dumb enough to keep updating, till I got to a point that I would get random BSOD when playing a game or watching a movie. Re-installed Windows 8, never updated beyond the WHQL driver that MS installs a...
Summary: I bought this card because I also bought a Asus P8Z77-V Premium motherboard. I have not been able to test the card. My MoBo went bad and needs to be replaced. My case has been replaced becasue I could not attach the card to the case. I should have bought the gpu card from EVGA.
Summary: You should make a program that allows the users too change the color of the led on the GPU.
Pros: 60+ FPS on every games such as APB World of warcraft battlefield 3 on ultra and 1920X1080p monitor resolution. Runs at 30-40o C on heavy load no overclocking. Quiet
Cons: Keep having driver issues and crashes in game play. Might still be remains of a virus I got a while back. Going too format my HD and re install windows 7 Ultimate too see if that solves the problem.
Currently the fastest card money can buy, but is it really 'the best graphics card ever made'?

Summary: So over the holidays I completed a new build with two of these in SLI (basically a Quad SLI setup), it's very fast :) (You can find the build video on Youtube and also see some photos above). Basically, the GTX 690 is a card on with two GTX 680 cards bolted together, SLI 'out of the box'.
Summary: This card requires 2 x PCI 8 power inputs to run. But out the box they supply the card with one PCI6 to PCI8 adaptor (and the one I received didn't work), so I had to purchase additional cables from Maplin in order to render this card operational in my system.
Summary: Maybe in 1-3 years this card might be fully utillised but i see no point in 100+ fps on games displayed at 1080 res..........so you are waitin on Microsoft and Sony for the xplops one and PS4 to appear for software devolopers to use this gpu tech etc.....
Excerpt: This video card is the holly grail of gaming. If you are a gamer this card is beyond defiant for you.If you are trying to build a budget pc forget about this video card. Anything you throw at this card such as battlefield 3, medal of honor war fighter, skyrim, hitman absolution, it really doesn't...
Summary: Habe diese Grafikkarte mit meinen PC erworben. ich kann nur sagen Hammer Leistung und Hammer Preis. Nvidia packt zwei vollwertige Geforce GTX 680 auf eine extralange Platine und nennt das Biest Geforce GTX 690.
