PNY again shines for me 03/29/2012
I have to say I was not sure if the one 680 GTX could match my PNY 580's in TRI-SLI. Well it did and even better. For example I play Metro 2033, Saints Row 3rd, Battlefield 3 and Batman A.C. with max setting and MS AA using NVidia 3d vision 2 kit. V sync is now my favorite it just works great and no more tearing in cut scenes, also FX AA is really nice and in some games looks just like MS AAA or better , the best part but no frame hit penalties . No thermo issues versus the 580's. Its quiet and doesn't get over 60C @ 57 percent fan speed in Battlefield 3 and saints row 3rd, Metro is about 70c @ 63 percent fan speed. So if you have Tri-sli 580's its ok to get one of these GTX 680 ‘s and still have all the eye candy and much easier cooling solution.
Two things I don’t like is that they don’t have a 30 day trade up program and the rebates take about 3 months.
As far an the PNY cards this is the 4th one and all of them never had any problems. PNY has Good phone support as far as pre-sales. Life time warranty after registration for original purchaser but anyone is covered under the 1 year warranty with proof of purchase. I never had to call customer service or tech support ever.
