ASUS GeForce GTX 680 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card GTX680-DC2-4GD5
ASUS GeForce GTX 680 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card GTX680-DC2-4GD5

Pros: Setting the already amazing performance of the reference 680 aside, this model goes above and beyond. The engineering genius that ASUS has brought to the table with this card will speak for itself for the hardcore gamers out there. I went from two GTX 570s in SLI, and this card from ASUS plays Skyrim smoother and with almost 0 crashes. I'm averaging higher FPS (though not beating the max that the SLI config put out), and lower temps. The highest I've seen this card go is 61c in my system with air cooling. It's quiet, even at 100% usage.

Cons: This one is on ASUS. When I bought the card and paid almost $600, you would think there'd be SOME kind of promotion with it. Nope, I got a vague manual in 20 different languages, and when I initially tried to register it, the ASUS website kept giving me errors. It's about a month and a half later now and I've just now been able to register it, and not only that, I come to find out that they're giving away $150 in credit for 3 different online games.... Don't get me wrong, I love this card, and ASUS is second to none with their hardware (50% of my system is ASUS parts), but I feel rather short-changed. Maybe it's ASUS, maybe it's the Egg, can't blame a guy for feeling disappointed, eh?

Overall Review: Can't wait to get a second one for SLI some time down the road!
