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: 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: Pros: - Absolutely top end performance. One card beats my old 560ti's. - Overclocks nicely and doesn't get much hotter. - Blower style coolers are my favourite. All heat is exhausted outside of the case. Great for mini builds. - Pulls much less power than a 580. - Doesn't require 8 pin power. 2x6 pins. - Not as long as it looks. There is clearance inside the shroud if you have to put it in a tight space. - Perfect variation of outputs.
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: Great card, plays all the new games with ease. Graphics are amazing with this card. From my testing, it doesn't run hot. On an i5 3570K, this card outperforms the cpu in benchmarking and performance tests. If I had known that, might have got the i7!
Pros: Warranty, cooling system, overclock out of the box
Cons: Software on disk that is actually something you have to purchase.
