EVGA 02G-P4-2683-KR GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked,  Signature 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet, high performance

Cons: Expensive, large ----- both of these were expected

Other Thoughts: I play bf3 1080p ultra settings minus motion blur (because, seriously, who uses that?) with an average of 60-70 FPS depending on how much action is happening. Awesome card. Im upgrading to a 2560x1440 monitor soon, so I hope it holds strong. If it doesn't, I will update my review.

EVGA 01G-P3-1373-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price, performance, looks great, very useful and stable OC software included, sli performance is AMAZING

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I couldnt afford a 580, or even a 480 for that matter, but I wanted awesome graphics. I bought this instead and was fairly impressed with the ratio of price to performance. . .BUT THEN, I got a second one for sli a couple months later. Wow, HUGE performance gain. The absolute cheapest way to max out games and maintain good FPS. Here are some examples:

BFBC2 32xx HBAO on Maxed 75-95 avg min 50 max 150
Metro 2033 Maxed DX11 no AA 60-80 FPS with Max AA 40-60
BF3 Beta Operation Metro Everything Maxed 50-60 outside environments 70-80 inside

I believe the BF3 beta doesnt feature the ultra settings, it only does high. So in that case, high=maxed. Also, nothing in my computer is O/C

i7 2600k, 8ddr3 1600, ga-z68x-ud3h-b3

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: None

Cons: For what you get, $16 is way overpriced (should be giving these away for free), flimsy parts, extremely low read speed for large DVDs (10+ minutes to load a 4gb DVD), DRIVE STOPPED READING DVDs ENTIRELY AFTER 2 WEEKS

Other Thoughts: Do a search and you will find that these drives easily have a 90% fail rate within a month of installation. Wide range of problems with no solutions available. Stay away. Get a different drive, this is 100% junk in a box and should be priced around a buck fifty if not free.
