Really cool under load
Every game I have at 1920x1080 on Ultra @ 60+ FPS
Metal bracket prevents card sag
Easy overclocking even above stock OC
Cons: Bracket prevents HAF 932 case tool-less card retainers working
Need a HUGE case to SLI
This card is simply outstanding. Fast, quite and cool under load. I have only topped it out at 49C under 100% load and 30% fan speed so far. It chews through 3DMark 11. The card has a power LED over each power connector so you know everything is plugged in correctly as soon as you power on. I actually bumped up from a GTX 670 and my 3DMark scores rose 450 points before overclocking.
It's stable, it can easily be overclocked, and it runs games flawlessly without any lagging or freezing what so ever. I've been playing Crysis 3 ever since it came out and I never thought to myself before it was released "I'm not sure if it'll handle it."
If you have the money for it, then absolutely without a doubt, get the ASUS GTX 680. There's no better card, besides the Titan which is also 1,100$ and I don't know about you, but when my Limit is $1,500 for the entire build I don't think a $1,100 Video card is necessary.
But anyway, I came into one and only one problem with the card.
It's HUGE. By huge, I mean me and my buddy had to take a dremel saw to cut out one of my CD Slots just to fit it in my case.
So if you're buying this, just make sure you have a pretty big Case to your computer.
Other than that, the Graphics card is amazing, and I love it, and it was extremely worth the money.
Nvidia graphics cards enable you to have...
2.) Nvidia Physx (Former known as AGEIA Physx, before purchased by Nvidia)
3.) Nvidia PureVideo
4.) SLI/SLI Profiles (Most compatible Multi-GPU solution out there due to several reasons I'll mention later)
5.) Unified Drivers for Geforce 6000 series through GTX 600 series. (Nvidia honestly does deliver the most stable and compatible driver solution in the graphics market, again due to reasons I'll mention later)
6.) Boost clocks on the GTX 6 series.
7.) TWIMTBP program (The Way It's Meant To Be Played) Nvidia works close with many developers to make games learn mostly towards Nvidia.
AMD/ATI graphics card enable you to have....
1.) Video/Internet Video and 2D clarity (AMD/ATI really does shine in this category, The HD 7 series especially puts out one HECK of a picture!)
2.) Usually a low cost solution to CPU/GPU, and can perform perfectly fine in games for your everyday user.
3.) Availability (Especially lately with the new generation of cards from Nvidia and AMD/ATI, AMD/ATI has the upper hand in availability of their new series) This is due to low fab yields for Nvidia, which is slowly changing.
4.) AMD App Acceleration
5.) Crossfire with APU's ( Yes if you have an AMD/ATI card within similar specs and series of the graphics core of your APU you can crossfire them together. )
6.) Very compatible with AMD's own motherboard chipset platforms.
7.) I'll get back to you on this...I haven't found a 7th yet.Read more ›
I use it to play on a single monitor setup with 3D vision 2. I can play any game whatsoever in ultra settings without worrying about FPS. When it gets old, ill get another one and SLI.
Currently, this is better than a 690 just because of the ridiculous price the 690 is.
First off, holy crap this thing is humongous! It's like the size of a brick or bigger, but thankfully less heavy. I decided to remove the stock thermal paste and reapply a aftermarket paste because most manufactures are just going to use the generic cheap stuff. One thing I love about this card is it very easily to take apart as they built this item to be easily cleaned and maintenanced.
As most have already mention this card takes 3 slots because of the large heatsink so be warn. I'm a having a slight problem with this card at the moment because the bracket portion is interfering with my sound card that I have placed right above the GPU. The sound card will not sit in it's slot because the large bracket on the graphic card is getting in the way and I dare not try to force the sound card into it's slot so I left it hanging freely without it being screwed on. It might be just me and my specific motherboard and case, but this card takes up more like 4 slots for me as it's large bracket interferes with adjacent slots.
The stock core settings are 1019mhz for the core and 3000mhz for the memory. I was able to overclock the card to 1252mhz on the core and 3305mhz with a +12mV increase and so far has ran stable in games and benchmarks.
I don't own any graphic intensive games except Splinter Cell Conviction, but I got an average of 150 FPS with all graphic settings maxed out with temperatures varying between 55-59C while the fan speed never going above 30%. I can't hear the card fan speeds at all in idle or full load.

I have nothing but fantastic things to say about this card. The vendor went out of his way to ship it to me more quickly as I was in somewhat of an emergency situation. Read morePublished 17 months ago by J. Shubin
