Damn you w1zz...

And you gotta be really really DUMB to think that if you can overclock your GTX680 to 1.3GHZ your gonna get good results. 30% frequency increase for about 8-15% performance increase.
(I'm talking to you, overclockersclub.com)
Overclocking using heaven loops till it crashes is the wrong way to overclock a card that starts throttling at some point and just keeping the same performance.

If you are aware how the overclocking goes with the GTX680, if you want to have new hardware and are not satisfied with software support from AMD then it's fine. Otherwise I'd keep the card.

I am terrible at this stuff, and I honestly have some one put it together for me....shame I know. If any one is interested let me know. Also, I am having some issues with the drivers Catalyst is as responsive as our government which is driving me nuts.

We aren't slaves to tech ... tech is our slave.
We whip it and beat it relentlessly, pummelling it when it doesn't perform and then toss it to the roadside when a newer stronger slave show up. ;)

HD 3000 will be next this year

Autograph them and give them away in a contest. I'm sure there are many people on TPU who would love a W1zzard atuographed GPU even if it was old tech and just sat on a shelf. :)

Brilliant card from the green team (now I can say this since I swapped my 5770 for a GTX 260), However:

Die size about the same as a 9800 GT. Price=500$ ?! (Don't misunderstand, amd will poo into their own blood as long as their prices are as such).
also for the 7970: 550$ And less performance than a 680 (quite a bit slower), don't rally care about the whole GPGPU thing very much. but when the f*** will amd push that damn things price down?
and wizzy, are you people allowed to keep these cards sent to you as press release? (sorry about the nosy question, ignore if you want)

Wait you just throw them away!? I could use a AGP card if you have one, my sisters old computer is getting well really old, its from 2001 and doesn't even have a dedicated card, but she still trys to game on it. I think it has P4 LGA 478 2.8GHz? and maybe 512MB ram

I'd imagine after the shipping costs you'd do better to just buy a used card stateside.

You have got to be bloody sh**ting, erm, nevermind.
does the card have that rear backplate heatspreader thing? or are those soldering points for capacitors exposed? (haven't seen the card)

You sort of like me, brother (if you mind me calling), except I do it with my hands (Handing the card, smelling the GPU from the inside, mosfets suffered from oc, etc)
We should invent a name for ourselves, like car lovers have such as gearhead...
GPUHead, PCBEaters, any ideas?

Well, you could sign it "DanTheBanjoman", "DarkSaber" or "Urlyin", but signing it "W1zz" or "W1zzard" might be better. You could sign your real name, but anyone who doesn't know who you are would say, "Who the hell is that?!?"

Don't forget to include a certificate of authenticity page that you sign also, so we can sell the signed old stuff way overpriced on the BST forum to the other sucke ... er ... members.

If you still have that original Fermi that you blew up, sign it and send it to me. I'll have it museum quality mounted and framed and send it back, so you can auction it off in case you ever need money for coke and hookers new hardware.

Don't worry W1zz, I got you covered when the really tough questions come up. :rockout:
