Transform your games with reality-redefining gaming power with the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 680, which delivers a new level of realism and environmental interaction in the hottest HD titles. Powered by the industry-leading 28nm Kepler architecture, the GeForce GTX 680 packs powerful NVIDIA SMX shaders and abundant amounts of memory that deliver a performance punch in the latest 3D games and applications. This card is factory overclocked to 1137MHz for smoother gameplay in the latest DirectX 11 titles. NVIDIA GPU boost technology raises the performance bar by maximizing clock speeds on the fly for maximum graphics power in every gaming scenario. A full array of NVIDIA GTX technology, such as NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync, NVIDIA Surround and TXAA AntiAliasing, revolutionizes your gaming with smooth and true-to-life visuals like you have never experienced before.

  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg NVIDIA Surround with Up To Four Monitors Imagine the thrill of 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.
  • newegg TXAA AntiAliasing Antialiasing helps to smooth out jagged lines in games. Existing techniques like MSAA are effective at removing jagged lines in still images but struggle with crawling and shimmering artifacts when the player is in motion. TXAA is a new antialiasing mode that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for the highest edge quality and minimal shimmering during gameplay.
  • newegg 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 technology. In addition, you can enjoy 3D movies and 3D digital photographs in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU

Pros: Games are maxed out using these two on SLI

Cons: Price is high.
You'll need a lot of room on your motherboard and a full size case.

Other Thoughts: I ordered two of these and received two game codes for the same game... There's got to be better solution than stuff people with games they don't even play.

5 out of 5 eggsAll games graphs maxed

Pros: Two of these with SLI allow me to run W.o.T. maxed with stable 80 FPS or more. This combination also allows EVE online to be "insane".
GeForce Experience optimizes every game I own.

Cons: Price. The only way to justify this price is... Adult toys must be expensive?..

5 out of 5 eggsLove this card!

Pros: Very fast and runs any game on high settings. Does not get very hot because of the monster fans on it. Everything about this card is BIG! About to order a second card for SLI. A second card is not needed by any means... but I want it. Was VERY excited when I saw Newegg decided to restock these :)

Cons: It takes up 3 slots and is very long. To say this card is a monster would be an understatement. However, the fact that I am ordering a second card and devoting 6 slots to them shows that they are worth it.

Other Thoughts: Surprisingly quiet for 3 fans.

1 out of 5 eggsNo luck for me.....

Pros: -Ran cool

Cons: _continuously froze after 3 seconds in games and once just on windows with white blocks all over the screen. Had to control, Alt Delete to get back to windows and would say the game had stopped responding and sometimes just an error message. Bummed.

Other Thoughts: Tried different drivers and different slots. No luck.

RMA'd for refund.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a Beast

Pros: This thing can play absolutely almost any game on max settings without ever breaking a sweat. Gigabyte has always been the best brand for me. I had 2 gigabyte 9800 gt's for 5 years and they are still working. Im pretty confidant that this card will last just as long.

Cons: The card is big, but that was expected. You need quiet a bit of room for it in your case.

Other Thoughts: Getting two of these cards was my main goal at first but didn't have the money for the second card. I seriously doubt though that I will ever get a second because I feel that there is no need for another. No game that I have ever played needed a second card to handle it.
This is what I run:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz

Memory (RAM): CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

Graphics: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 680 4GB 256-bit GDDR5

Motherboard: ASUS Maximus V EXTREME


OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent cooler, high factory overclock.

Cons: Takes up three slots whether you like it or not, although it's not for a bad reason. Also quite expensive, but if you're getting this card, price probably isn't the most important thing on your mind.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a beast..

Pros: I am thoroughly impressed with the performance this card has to offer.

I put it to the test with Skyrim and close to 200 mods running with most, if not all High Res Texture packs out there (punish your machine editions).

I am also using an ENB, K ENB to be exact. I find this to be the most punishing for performance but easily the most beautiful looking ENB for Skyrim, in my opinion.

Outdoors with heavy action (civil war style battle mod) I am sitting at no less than 30fps. I sit between 31.5-38fps outdoors and 50fps indoors.

With my previous card (Sapphire 7870 HD) I would sit at 22-25fps outdoors and drop to 12-17 with the same civil war mod action on screen.

Cons: Price, I guess... If you're on a strict budget.

Other Thoughts: I am running the card single with:

i5 2500k cpu
8GB Ram
SSD (Skyrim located on SSD)

1 out of 5 eggsFail at 33days

Pros: loved it for BF3 and other games will play with ultra settings, Cool even under load and when I get the card back I would love to see how it runs in SLI mode as this is reason I bought two of these cards.

Cons: Price, size (need a very large case and Mobo to fit side by side. I listed it as owning for 1month-1yr but the truth is I had it for 34 days and now it's Dead!!! Real disappointing as I wanted to run SLI and I have had one already and it is running great but this one is just over 30days by a few days (3) and now it’s dead. So now I will have to dread the RMA process and send the card out for replacement or repair and we really know how fun that is. I just want to say that a price as steep as this is I would have hoped for a better time frame on a card going out but let’s be fair as far as Nivida goes this is the first one that has failed on me so I really should not to mad other than spending a lot of cash and having to send it back.

Other Thoughts: I wish I had the ability to do water cooling on this card but I can't find a model that will work with a non ref. design.

5 out of 5 eggsComplete Beast of a Video Card

Pros: - 4GB of memory will give you an amazing experience with extremely high resolutions (read: 2560x1600 or multi-monitor gaming)
I upgraded from 2 GTX 280's in SLI to this card. (Running on a 30" Dell Ultrasharp - 2560x1600 resolution) I'm literally seeing 3-4 times more fps in games and running them at higher (actually maximum now) settings. Check 'other thoughts' for a little more on the memory.
- Despite the enourmous increase in perforance, this card uses about 30 watts less power then just one of my 280's and produces significantly less heat. Imagine coming from 2!
- The cooling design used not only keeps temps down but even under full load this card is QUIET. It actually produces less noise under load then one of my old cards did idle. Kudos to Gigabyte with this cooling solution.
- While you can look up plenty of benchmarks yourself, this is how I look at the performance of this card: (keep in mind the 1600p resolution; 4x AA)
Skyrim, max settings, high-res texture pack - Never drops below 60fps.
CS:GO, max settings - Never drops below 150fps.
DayZ, max settings - Never drops below 60fps.
BFBC2, max settings - Never drops below 60fps.
Fallout New Vegas, max settings - Never drops below 70fps
Metro2033, max settings - The only game I've tried so far that challenged this card. FPS still stayed above 45 at all times which is about 40fps more then my last setup at these settings!

This list could go on and on and the results would be the same. For a single card/single GPU solution it's incredible what it can do. I'm yet to experience anything close to choppy or laggy game play because of a GPU that can't render fast enough or the lack of available memory in the GPU causing constant swaps of texture files.

Cons: - There's only one con to this beast of a video card and it's size. The card not only takes up 3 slots but it is extremely long and fairly heavy.
Don't even consider a mid-tower. I have all but an extra inch of clearance from the hard drive bays in an Antec 1200 full tower and I never thought I'd see a day where that case felt tight.
Because of its length, pick up the card from both ends when removing it from the box. You'll see why that's a smart move once you do.

Other Thoughts: Please make a note that the 4GB of memory plays a huge part once you blow past that 1080p zone. And two 2GB cards in SLI do NOT equal 4GB of available memory; it's still 2GB. The world of GPU memory is one of the few places where 2+2 ='s 2. And 2GB just won't cut it for this scenario.
Another thing is that this card did not pair nicely with a Q6600. Even with an OC I found that quite a few games held this card back because of that processor. (So obviously anything slower would be worse.) After a few quick tests before pairing it with an i7, it's like night and day. I would consider an upgrade to an i5/i7 or AMD equivalent if you're purchasing this video card. I take that back. Please pair this video card with a processor that won't hamstring it!

Best advise I can give you here is if you're at 1080p or lower, get a single 2GB version of this card and spend the money on more memory or a better CPU. It'll be more then enough and be just as much of a pleasure to own. If you are an ultra high-res/multi-monitor user (and want the best gaming experience you can get at this price range) follow these 3 steps:
1. Get this card.
2. Install this card.
3. Giggle like a little kid the first time you play one of your favorite games.

This GPU is the most expensive piece of hardware I've ever purchased to stick in a PC in my entire life. But you know what?
