MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680GTX-PM2D2GD5 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Great card while it worked. Bought from NewEgg on 4/27/2012 (so lasted just over 8 months).

Cons: While the computer was in sleep mode, the fan on card randomly went into high-gear and didn't stop. By the time I got across the room I could already smell burning plastic.

Shut computer down, opened up the side panel, reseated the card and check all the cables. Powered back up and sparks literally shot out about 2 feet with a small smoke trail. Powered back down.

Installed my old GTX460 and comp runs fine, same cables. I don't dare plug the 680 back in.

Will attempt to call MSI customer service tomorrow since it's outside NewEgg's return time.

Other Thoughts: Specs of computer:
850W PS
Intell i5 2500k
8Gb ram
GIGABYTE GA-Z68X motherboard
Windows 7 64bit
