Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
NVIDIA GPU Boost Up until now, GPUs have operated at a fixed clock speed when playing 3D games, even if they have the potential to run faster. GPU Boost intelligently monitors graphics work load and increases the clock speed whenever possible. The result is that the GPU always performs at its peak and you get the highest framerate possible.
NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
NVIDIA Surround with Up To Four Monitors Nothing is as breathtaking as playing your favorite games across three monitors. At 5760 x 1080, the expanded field of view fully engages human peripheral vision and provides for the most immersive experience in racing and flight simulators. Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email or web while you are gaming.
Two New Anti-aliasing Modes: FXAA and TXAA Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new antialiasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel. The second mode, TXAA, is an in-game option that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for even higher visual fidelity.
NVIDIA 3D Vision Ready NVIDIA 3D Vision brings a fully immersive, stereoscopic 3D experience to the PC. A combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software, 3D Vision transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. Get up to 2x monitor and keyboard brightness with NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology4. In addition, you can enjoy 3D movies and 3D digital photographs from 3DVisionLive.com in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.

I got this on sale after Christmas 2012. I used it for a while with the stock cooler but while playing games the sound was very irritating. I did put an arctic cooling accelero twin turbo II on it, which helps with the sound and cooling a lot. The card itself is very reliable, I have overclocked it to a stable level at 1150 Mghz on the core clock.
I would say if you don't mind the sound or can spend a little more on an aftermarket cooler then go for it. Warning: putting on a different cooler will void the warranty, but mine has lasted so I am happy with the purchase I made.
Price is good for a GTX670. Noise has settled down some from when first ran but is still loud and annoying. The Asus GTX660 TOP that I bought for my son is close to this in performance and very much quieter. Warranty is voided if you change fans and $300 for a non-warrantied video card would be ridiculous, so I'll put up with the noise. I probably would not purchase this video card again.
Bought this cars as it was the cheapest one available à that point (340$ instead of 370 for other brand). The performance is there, but the noise too. My old 470 was loud too, so it does not bother me that much, but hoped it would be a little less noisy when playing.
I replaced 2 x amd 6950s in crossfire with one of these. Its gets about 95% of the performance of my old cards with 1/2 the power/heat and a lot less noise. Game play is also smoother than it was before, but that's a crossfire and sli issue. I haven't tried overclocking it yet but honestly I don't need to. It also runs my three screens perfectly. I don't game in surround mode but I do a lot of graphics work and its great.
I was angry that the original advertised shroud didnt come with the card. It had Palit's reference card design. After talking with a PNY rep, I found out why it happened; They couldnt meet the demand for Boxing day so they switched shroud suppliers and that is what they got.
I love this card. Bought for around $300 but puts up 680 numbers. Overclocks well to 1200Mhz and runs cool on stock voltage. Yes the fan does whine, but quieter than my 560ti 448 core...buy if on sale.
