    first, nice review and it's looks like a beautiful card there but i came over this spelling error actually or there is something i didn't knew about this card.

    i through this card was a "Palit GTX 680 JetStream" not a "MSI GTX 680 JetStream" ^^;

    Hmm, suggested retail might be same as a standard card but in UK two sites list it as about £470 on pre-order. Gouge away my retailers, gouge way.

    For those in the UK, I did some hunting and found best site for gfx cards. I've used before and got a RAT 7 mouse for way under price. I've had no issues with the site and I'll be remembering to check them out next time.

    The Palit card reviewed by W1zz is on pre order at £415 (£55 less than OcUK and Scan).

    Good review. Can't wait for your 690

    I really like the Temp page and BF3 OC.

    Does the 680 not work in some Multi screen games as their are several games that it did not work in.

    The shroud looks like a stealth vehicle. Also, it looks like its running on a 6 phase PWM instead of the regular 5 phase. All for the same price tag of a reference card. Nice one Palit.

    This is the 1st time i've seen an OCed card version that costs the same as the non OCed version and, to top it off, actually performs better all around: power consumption included.

    nVidia and AMD: better pay close attention. Palit's on to something.

    NVIDIA and AMD are not intending to create the best reference designs they can. The intentionally leave a lot of room for improvement to the manufactures.

    Yea, that pricing is surprising, and the fact they provide with 6 phase PWM with it is very nice, but as to the NCP 4206 controller... I wonder if a better part while less pricy as it works better with the 6 Phase...

    I would have like to see the heat sink layout, you know a picture of it with out the shroud. What struck me was the backside of cooler would appear more akin to backing plate to add rigitity.

    Nice offering Palit.

    I sincerely hope not. Palit is one of the worst card makers out there. I had a Palit 4850 and the card died about 1 month past its 2nd birthday, just after the warrany expired. They're garbage. Go with Gigabyte or MSI (or Sapphire or XFX on the AMD side, too) and save yourself the headaches.
