The card is working just great.

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.

Pros: This card is a beast
Really cool under load
Whisper quite
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.

The GTX 680 is without a doubt the best Graphic Cards I've ever gotten to use. I've helped a lot of my friends build their computers and none of them ever wanted to dish out $500+ on a Video Card. In my opinion, it's 150% worth it.

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.

Hey guys and gals. First I'm going to give Pros and Cons of both AMD/ATI and Nvidia graphics cards.

Nvidia graphics cards enable you to have...

1.) CUDA
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.

The issue is .. it occupies 3 PCI slots. I think it looks great but should only occupy 2.

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.

I replaced an ASUS GTX660ti OC with this card. I also bought an ASUS 144hz monitor. They play well together. No more screen tearing. Ever. I had one hell of a time getting that info out of any reviewers on Amazon. I get full on FPS with this card. My game has improved dramatically with this card and 144hz. The only downside for me is it is massive. It fits fine in my chassis, tho. The temps are a degree or 2 lower than my 660. Go figure.

I upgraded from having my older nVidia GeForce 295 that was having weird overheating related crashes when playing Diablo3. Install was a snap, it runs quite, performs well, and I have had no problems to report after 3 months.

Rock solid card. It's been with me for two years now and I've never had a problem. Plenty of power and Asus has a fair price. It also runs extremely cool compared to most other cards on the market.

AWESOME GPU! Except for the fact it takes up three slots (but in doing so it runs COOL). I recommend this unless you are going to SLI.... in that case think ahead because this is a greedy, spacious monster
