MSI N680GTX-PM2D2GD5 GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I now know video bliss i am so impressed with theses cards. i don't think that I've ever been more happy. All games suddenly seem to really pop more detail crisper edges great explosions smoke looks almost real. Stunning moving from (2) 480s i so happy i waited to upgrade to these cards. So quite, runs really cool, great 3D mark scores Over Clocks like crazy i recommend anyone looking pull the trigger you know you want one.

Cons: doesn't make pop corn very well

Other Thoughts: Got my second card a month ago

Patriot Viper Xtreme 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model PXD38G1866ELK
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is great ram for an intel chip i7 generation 2 or 3. i love this stuff over clocks like crazy. 7.8 on windows 7 system rating. Great value for great ram. i bought this ram at another vendor with a outstanding rebate. i don't think its an ADM part.

Cons: Reading all these bad reviews from ADM noobs really blows. The ram is over clocked? Try bumping the clock speed on your processor to hit 1866. If that doesn't work then your mother board doesn't support the rated speed.

Other Thoughts: Patriot Memory has been around a long time. i personally use their ram on most of my new builds with out an issue.
If i ever had an issue i would go to their site and look up the mother board and clock enter the value and BAM guess what it works. i'm going to purchase another 8 gigs of this ram for my new build no matter what these knuckle heads write Don't be afraid Patriot has a great RMA department to go with a great product.

MSI N680GTX-PM2D2GD5 GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Seems to me that this is the best chipset that Nvidia has built to date. I am very impressed by the performance of this card.3D mark 11 score 11543, 3D mark Vantage 45,568 W/ Lucid Logix Virtu MVP enabled. Compared to my 480 GTX's, this card runs very cool and quiet. A single 680GTX runs faster in most cases than my (2) 480gtx cards in SLI. This card is so quiet you can barely hear it.

Cons: The chip must be very difficult to manufacture I can't remember when a reference video card was so hard to come by. Must be bad yields for the 28nm chips.
I waited 2 1/2 months to get one.I just kept placing auto notify on all the reference cards.
one night i was online when the e-mail came in for the MSI by the time i ordered it and signed back in they were all gone i could only purchase one. The cost is a major con but you can't complain if you want to live on the bleeding edge.

Other Thoughts: I would like to buy another one when they become available again. Newegg hasn't had any for a couple weeks. If your looking for a great card you"ll have to beat me to the purchase button because I'm looking every day.
i would recommend this card to everyone that can afford one or two or three.
