Other Thoughts: Compared to the amount of driver issues I had with Crossfire ATI 5870s with Eyefinity, the 680 worked great, so it still gets 5 stars and improved performance. The few problems I have experienced so far fixed themself after about a day of use, it doesnt make sense to me how it would fix itself but Im not going to argue with it. I can play Witcher 2 across 3 monitors! I can finally spend more time playing my games than finding bug fixes and driver fixes that I was doing with ATI Radeon cards!

Its dissapointing that the Gigabyte model cost more than the most others AND comes with less accesories with no significantly different cooler. I guess with them all being out of stock and hard to find, Gigabyte is taking advantage of those (myself included) desperate enough to pay more :( I prefer EVGA model but would take any of them at this point with them being so high in demand still.

Other Thoughts: I replaced my crossfire AMD 5870 set up and with GTX 680 has given me a huge FPS increase. Since I game with a 3 monitor setup at 5760 x 1080 resolution, most of my game settings had to be lowered to about medium / high specs. The GTX 680 has brought my FPS back to 60 FPS consistently at the same settings my crossfire was. There are alot of bugs using crossfire and I spent more time troubleshooting than playing, the 680 is an awesome replacement of 2 cards! Lastly, AMD drivers have SUCKED the past 6 months or so. I was using 5 month old drivers because nothing else was stable. I kept giving them chances to improve but I have given up hope, so far I have not found any of my games to have issues with the NVidia 301.1 driver release.

Other Thoughts: For the price to performance ratio, these are great fans. If price is not an issue, I would recommend the Cougar Vortex over this one.
