EVGA 03G-P4-3788-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Classified w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Amazing card for $580 that beats a stock Titan for $420 less. Card is very quiet and cool for how powerful it is thanks to Nvidia's design and EVGA further customizing it.

Fans are nice and quiet, and the card overclocks like a beast thanks to EVGA's custom design and great utilities.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: It's a very wide card, make sure you have the room in your case.

ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 GTX680-DC2T-2GD5 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Very quiet under load, and runs cool considering it is the fastest 680 you can buy out the box. The quality of the card is top notch from ASUS compared to the reference design. Big fan of the dynamic vsync with a 120Hz monitor. Lower power draw then reference even OC.

Cons: My 7970 GE beats this pretty easily in 3DMark, even OC to max. But you can't play 3dMark, and Nvidia drivers are generally a better experience.

Not even close to AMD game bundles, but w/e.

Other Thoughts: Not a con, but the card is huge. You won't be SLI these unless you have a big board and case. I would guess the price of this will drop with the GTX 780/770 about to launch. Not a fan of Nvidia reference design cooling besides Titan so you may want to consider this card if it drops to GTX 770 price levels and don't want to wait for non reference 770's.

Pros: Fast ram, works well. 28 timing vs 27 on Corsair dominator for double the price.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Using this ram on a ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 mobo XMP profile with no issue. WEI is a 7.9 for what that's worth. I mainly went with this speed because there is a better chance of using again on upgrade in the future.
