PNY GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 VCGGTX680XPB 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Amazing graphical performance. Innovative energy efficiency design. This was a very simple and easy install. The drivers worked perfectly with no technical glitches and none of my games have dropped below 60 FPS at 1920 x 1080 with max settings yet. I will need to go get a new (or several new) higher resolution screen just to push this hardware to what it's really capable of doing. DisplayPort out a plus.

Cons: The Nvidia control panel isn't super intuitive, but that's not a fault unique to this product. Supply is an issue (obviously). I purchased mine from PNY directly for $499 after MIR. Now the price is up $50 to $579 with the same $30 MIR. Why? Because too many people want this top of the line card. This card however does not lose an egg for price. $550 is probably well below what Nvidia could have set as an MSRP.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card for my first full system build. Because it arrived several weeks before my newegg order I was able to test in a 2+ year old Asus with an Intel i7 920 and a gene II mobo. The improvement over the gtx 260 I had before was impressive, so it works well in old systems. Even better with the new i7 3820 and Asus P9X79 Deluxe though. No problems during either build and as I say it runs quite and cool.
