Summary: I recently built a new super-computer for gaming and I chose the Zotac GTX-680 for my new build. Overall I am extremely satisfied with it's performance. It has handled every game that I've thrown at it including Battlefield 3 all at absolute Max Settings. The only game that I could not play on Ultra is Crysis 3.
Summary: I noticed this card has not been selling, but it's got 4 gigs of ram and goes for $469 after $30 rebate (Not here, at a website which is Directly related to a Tiger, hint hint). My old Radeon HD 5770 was the only bottleneck on my rig (See full specs below) So I convinced myself to replace it. I won't bore you with technical details or exact benchmarks; you can find those elsewhere if you want. I'm a hardcore gamer, and I only play at maximum detail settings.
Summary: Not too much techno BS just the facts. This card runs any and all games on ultra high settings, maxed out and not a single stutter , never drops framerates in any game under any circumstances, this card eats every game for lunch and asks for more. I came from dual GTX 460's in SLI to this card and it is night and day. I was apprehensive when trying ZOTAC, I have never used their products before but, that has all changed. I am now a ZOTAC fan for life.
Summary: very nice look to the 680 series. this is a triple slot card so sli'ing more than 2 is difficult without having to watercool the cards. i have had issues with the cards overheating causing the computer to turn off. i fixed this by adding extra washers to the gpu spring screw's.
Summary: This is a great video card, good build quality, tremendous performance and quiet even under load and silent at idle. On a single display there isn't any game that this card can't handle at the highest of settings (2560x1440). I now have two of these GTX680 Zotac cards in SLI configuration for multi display gaming.
