MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680GTX TF 2GD5/OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The card was basically plug and play and runs cool and quite for being a top performance card!

Cons: Make sure that you use the MSI drivers designed specifically for this card to ensure that you get the best performance out of the card. The automatic update will down load drivers not specific to this card.

Other Thoughts: I say buy this card over the Titan or GTX 690. If you need more performance just purchase a second one of these and SLI them, It would not only still be cheaper than the other cards it would put your system in beast mode!

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very easy board to set up. I like to build my systems on bench cases and the Sabertooth gives the build a very clean look.

Cons: Needs Redesign of the Thermal Armor around the RAM Slots. Currently if you want to have Memory cooler fans on your memory, the fans will not properly fit without removing the armor and using a dremel to modify the board so that the mounts for the fans can be secured.

Other Thoughts: This is my second build using a ASUS Sabertooth Mother Board with Thermal Armor the Cooling Fans didn't come with the first one that I bought, I had to purchase them separately. This time the Cooling Fans were included! I believe that ASUS was listening to the feedback that many costumers like me gave them about the lack of a $5.00 set of Fans when a Mother Board that they designed was made have them. I really like the new dust caps that are included now as well.

MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680GTX TF 2GD5/OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Kombuster Benchtest overall score of X5531 (168 FPS) Absolutely pleased that I selected this card for my new gaming build! Very quite card.

Cons: Make sure that you are using the MSI designed drivers. If you use the updated GeForce Drivers using GeForce Experience because the Core clocks get turned down to 890. If you are running the MSI driver the Core shold run at 1124.

Other Thoughts: If you can't afford $1,000 the Titan or the GTX690 buy this card! and If you can afford the Titan or GTX690 Buy 2 of these and run them in SLI they would blow the $1,000 cards away!
