GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 GV-N680OC-4GD 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: This thing can play absolutely almost any game on max settings without ever breaking a sweat. Gigabyte has always been the best brand for me. I had 2 gigabyte 9800 gt's for 5 years and they are still working. Im pretty confidant that this card will last just as long.

Cons: The card is big, but that was expected. You need quiet a bit of room for it in your case.

Other Thoughts: Getting two of these cards was my main goal at first but didn't have the money for the second card. I seriously doubt though that I will ever get a second because I feel that there is no need for another. No game that I have ever played needed a second card to handle it.
This is what I run:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz

Memory (RAM): CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

Graphics: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 680 4GB 256-bit GDDR5

Motherboard: ASUS Maximus V EXTREME


OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

GIGABYTE GeForce 9800 GT DirectX 10 GV-N98TOC-1GI Rev 2.0 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Can run Crysis on high settings with 2x atialiasing without bogging down. Any other game it can play on the highest settings no problem.

Cons: If you plan on running two of them make sure you have an extended ATX motherboard or they will generate too much heat. If not then try getting a case that has fans right on the cards. You might need to run liquid cooling.

Other Thoughts: Is an excellent card and by running two of them i don't have any problems running anything on max settings, even Crysis with 16x atialiasing.
