EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN X DirectX 12 12G-P4-2992-RX 12GB 384-Bit PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Superclocked Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Works as it should
- Overclocks well; max gpu clock of 1405
- Plays Assassin's Creed Syndicate near max (HBAO+ and High Shadows) from 55 to 60+ fps at 3440x1440
- All other past games at max or near max (Fallout 4, Crysis 3, Wolfenstein Old Blood, Shadow of Mordor, etc.)
- 12GB needed as some games have passed 6GB usage

Cons: None

EVGA GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) DirectX 11 03G-P3-1588-RX 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks unique. Stays cool; 27 C idle and 57 C load (I re-pasted the GPU with MX-4). Cheap considering that it can take on a GTX 660ti and, when easily overclocked, a GTX 670 and 760. Tested this out myself.

Card is refurbished but the one I received looks brand new. No dust or blemishes.

Cons: I made a custom fan curve in EVGA Precision X so my card runs cooler because I upped the fan. That said, this card is quite loud. Doesn't bother me but keep that in mind if it does.

Other Thoughts: Bought the backplate from EVGA and this card looks phenomenal.

Card uses more power and creates more noise/heat but if you are looking at a GTX 670 or 760, get this card instead (when it's in stock).

EVGA GeForce GTX 690 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 04G-P4-2690-KR 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: * Still one of the fastest single pcb gpus on the market
* Have had this card for over a year and it has never had any drivers issues or hiccups within games
* Runs reletively cool: 29 to 30 C during idle (both gpus) and 76 to 80 C during full load (unigine heaven 4.0 loop)
* Card only has 2 GB of memory per GPU but I have never run out of it. I run Skyrim with mods at 2560x1440p and the memory is enough.

Cons: * Surprised it's still 1k but I guess it still beats out a new GTX 780 ti in most games (pretty impresive considering it came out April 29th, 2012)
* It's dual gpu which some may claim as a drawback... I've personally never had a sli driver issue on any game (I buy most if not all of the AAA RPGs, FPSs, Racers)

Other Thoughts: I bought my 690 a day after it was released and I can honestly say that 1k was a lot but I feel I got my money's worth out of it. Played many, many games on it on a 2560x1440p monitor and the 690 has always pulled through on absolute max settings or almost max settings.

I felt this card finally deserved a well tested, 5-star review from me but... I would not recommed anyone to by this card anymore. It is over a year old and 1k may have been justifiable a year ago but not now with the possibility of a dual gpu 700 series card in the near future.

Keep in mind all of my review is based on the fact that I have a m-itx system and this is the best solution (7990 is too large and hot), otherwise getting two 780s or 770s would be a better buy.
