I think by far, these cards are the best high end cards I'v ever bought. They last ones that were worth the money in terms of high end cards for me, was the 8800 Ultra cards. I've had ever gen since then. mainly the x60 Ti series for efficiency purposes.
This gts680 has a large performance increase and the lighting edition is a overclocked out of the box. Its very quiet with its two 100mm fans featuring twin frozer IV..Excellent GPU overclocking potential and provide a software voltage control & monitoring at low temperatures. =)
Purchased to replace an AMD 6950 2GB, awesome power and cooling especially for air, only problem I've had was with the colour profiles in nvidia drivers resetting in fullscreen games, fixed by using windows to adjust instead.
I bought a GTX 570 DirectCU II a year ago and loved it just LOVED it. I got another one to SLI but in SLI with no spacing it was ridiculous and I just hated my system after that. I couldn't play the demanding games I wanted because of the heat and noise. So recently I sold them for about the price of a GTX 680. I did some research to find wich card would be as good as a DirectCU II one but without using 3 slots and this one is the answer.
An absolutely top-of-the-line graphics card for your high-end computer rig. Totally destroys all graphics cards on the market and would not hesitate to buy another card for an SLI setup. Very happy with this purchase and would recommend highly to others.
I've had this card for a few days now and i'm extremely happy with it. Everything game i try it just lol's at it the lowest FPS i saw so far was like 56 FPS in Arkham City with every maxed. BF3 i don't think has ever gone below 60 to be honest. The Card itself is a beauty to look at i think i stared at it for a good 10 minutes before it caught me looking :P. I am not sure if this is the best GPU out there minus the GTX 690 but i do know that i won't have to buy a graphics card for a long time and i havn't even spent much time overclocking yet. MSI's Afterburner is so simple to use. I wanted a GPU that will last me a while and i'm sure this will do the trick.
