MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680GTX-PM2D2GD5 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I replaced my 470 GTX Fermi with this card. After I installed it with clean drivers, etc... the performance was quite astounding. There were significant FPS improvements in all of the games I typically play (Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Guild Wars 2...) The card seemed to run cooler than my previous card.

Cons: The only con I have, and the biggest one, is that the card burnt up in less than a day of ownership. I don't know if I was simply given a faulty unit or UPS handled it poorly during shipment or what.

Other Thoughts: I literally turned my machine off to run to the store and came back only to find that the system wouldn't boot. I opened the case back up to find a hefty amount of smoke coming from the card. I'm surprised it wasn't on fire due to how lit up it was. I just want a replacement card that works!
