Was considering SLI 680's for the minor performance difference, however as others have stated, the slight difference in performance is countered on ALL levels. Takes up less room, less power (game green bros), you can OC this baby and negate that performance difference, and its gorgeous.
I have been somewhat disappointed in the past by top of the line cards, mainly because they are manufactured to be liquid cooled. EVGA out did themselves on this one. They put a lot of time into the cooling system and it shows. If you have a quality case with good air flow you don't need to LC. However, if you plan to OC I highly recommend doing so, but this card will STILL beast everything without plates and H2O.
On stock cooling, heavy load ~65-72
On LC ~40-47
Make sure your mobo and cpu won't bottleneck this card. I tested this baby out on a friends 2600k setup and saw about 10-15% lower numbers.
LED=classy during the day, dirty s lut at nigh
Cons: I wont say the price.
Honestly, I was a little disturbed after dropping a stack on this card. That was until it came in the mail.
This thing SCREAMS quality guys/gals and it is worth every penny.
No HDMI, but it comes with an adapter.
Mini-Display port- I really don't understand why these are installed on desktop GPU's... I get the Mac thing, but who games on OSX? Either way, pick up an adapter on mono_price for 5$ and you can take advantage of it for a 4th monitor.
Other Thoughts: BUY IT, you will not regret it. How many times can you say you own THE best card and you dropped a stack on it. BALLER STATUS Y'ALL

Pros: Powerful. 448 cores
This card will not run everything you throw at it on ultra with all the bells and whistles turned on, but then again it is not a $1000 gpu.
This card easily runs all games on high around 50-60fps.
Stock on ultra about 30-45fps depending on what you are playing.
If you have the ability to effectively cool this card, OC it.
If you OC this card you will get near if not above 570 scores, and you will have no problem playing anything on Ultra.
Cons: Super Big.
This card is huge, make sure you have the case to house it.
Feels rather flimsy, but I had zero issue with its construction hindering it.
It can be rather loud, but under heavy load on stock cool I didn't break 70C
I took an egg off because it uses Mini HDMI, and while it was a cheap fix, I'm still not a fan.
Other Thoughts: If you buy two of these you will be a very happy camper. They are cost effective and perform like champs. Even with one of these cards you can easily enjoy playing any game on the market with no issues whatsoever.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price to Performance
Easy to Install
Cons: I had to buy some unwanted G.Skill RAM with it
Other Thoughts: For the price and OC ability, there is no need to drop the extra money for the 3960.
Stable at 4.5, and I really don't need it to be that high.
I opened every page on the internet to try and slow this baby down.
I found the end of the internet.
