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: 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.
Summary: Handles my 2560x1440 27inch monitor at 100hz like a champ. I upgraded from a gtx 470 and couldnt be happier. It's not heating up my room anymore...lol love it. it handles everything i throw at it.
Most powerful single gpu consumer graphics card currently!

Summary: I am running Battlefield 3 and Skyrim at 2560x1600 resolution smooth as silk. If your monitor resolution is 1920x1200 or below, the standard 2GB version is sufficient. If you use nVidia Surround or ultra high resolution, then this 4GB version will allow you to use higher quality textures and filters.
