No real cons, this card gives me what I want!
Other Thoughts: I've been running off of a tired gtx 460 ever since it came out. With my new build I figure I get this card, great value for the price if you ask me. It was between this or the 7950, but I've had driver issues with the red team before so I went green. Currently I'm very satisfied with the card, haven't done any overclocking but I more than likely will with Afterburner.
Bf3 on ultra minus some unnecessary settings can easily maintain 60 or more FPS at 1080p, the rest of my games are less demanding such as some CODs and minecraft etc. I just need this card to last quite a while like my 460 did. By the way, purchased this from the bay of e.
Pros: Literally puts BF3 in a noose. This thing smashes any game I throw at it, the most demanding being BF3. 3 fan cooler, Gigabyte awesomeness, quiet, never higher than 55 C.
Cons: Barely triple slot, so you'll need a board with 3 slot distance between cards if you wish to SLI. I guess there aren't really any boards that will be able to tri SLI these?
Blue PCB, meh, I always prefer black but it goes fine with my Z77X-UD5H.
I guess it's a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for!
Other Thoughts: Bought this off of a website who's name is related to that of a jungle/forest.
I want this build to last for quite a while, I'm glad I waited for this card. I'm coming from a water cooled 280. Haven't done any real benchmarking, but performs amazingly on BF3 ultra with just about everything turned up @1080p, I'm sure the VRAM helps there. Also Im pretty sure this card runs 4 monitors natively, not sure though. I only use one at the moment.
No complaints, would recommend!
Pros: Gigabyte has another 680(the SOC whatever)and it looks like a very unorthodox cooling setup.Glad I found this one with three larger fans.My temps playing BF3 for about an hour on ultra barely get around 50ish. It's also pretty quiet, I use a headset so I can't really tell. Amazing, I'm speechless(see other thoughts)
Cons: Tri slot but doesn't appear that it needs to be.Though I guess it's just barely too big to SLI the min dual slot spaced PCIx16 slots, obviouslyI can't be for sure as I only have one. I wasn't about to bother modding the bracket.No real cons honestly.
Other Thoughts: Just fyi, i bought this off of a website, the name being related to some sort of jungle. Well coming from two 280's in SLI this is purely amazing. I'm sure some of you out there can see why I'm pretty speechless!
