    In need of a new card

    Yes pick the asus, the EVGA is good too..but EVGA are known to having faulty cards hence why they offer life time warranty. but the 600 series dont have life time warranty offers with evga (not that i know of at least). SO you might as well get the asus gtx 660, it offers better cooling, and 3...

    In need of a new card

    The msi hawk is a good card, really quiet and cooled nicely. Im a big fan of asus, so if you're ever get an interest in them, i would suggest this http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_660_Direct_Cu_II/. Slightly better than the msi hawk at same price and slightly better cooling.

    In need of a new card

    You dont have to do the overclocking, they have custom preclocked versions of every cards ever made. So they over clock it for you which means its faster than normal versions of the card with very little to lose. And obviously, with better performance comes better cooling. If you can get maybe...

    Next Gen ATI vs. NVidia

    Honestly, from what i see now, i think next gen nvidia will take the cake. Right now, the 670 and the 680 was one of nvidia's big mistakes. There is literally no difference between a reference 670 and a reference 680, so with things being weird like this, nvidia will definitely learn from their...

    Overclocking my gtx 680

    I hope so haha did you see gigabyte's 680 SOC? it blew my mind. The card's so beastly they made a custom weight support for it so it doesnt break the pcie slot. I think its probably heavier than my 680...

    Can I Run A GTX680 DCUII On A 650w PSU

    The 600s were designed to consume less power and produce less heat, you should be fine with a decent 650w psu, i run mine perfectly fine with my thermal take 750w psu.

    I just bought my gtx 680

    The system seems to be doing very good, thanks for your help guys. I ran far cry 3 on ultra dx11 msaa 4x and i was getting 50-40 fps. (its an annoying game, you gotta find proper settings to work with your monitor)

    I just bought my gtx 680

    I just bought the asus gtx 680 dcu2 top, (havent hooked it up yet still in box), and i was wondering if it'l bottleneck with my i5 760 overclocked to 3.4ghz?
  25. X

    Gtx 680.

    Hm in that case, would the i5 760 creat a bottleneck for either of the two 670 and 680?
