get a GTX 670 instead and save money. gtx 670 and gtx680 are the same. they both have similar speed but gtx 670 is much cheaper.

i dont know why Nvidia even bothered with the GTX 680. such a useless card man.

the only best and worthwhile card would be a GTX 690 after GTX 670. but its a lot more expensive :).

so get a GTX 670 or just save up to buy a GTX 690.

Not really. The price gap between the 670 is 690 is massive. Not really very viable recommendation. The GTX670 is a gimped 680. I got a GTX680 even after the 670s released because I could, and if Im going to spend this much on a GPU might as well get the best.It might be a useless card in your book, but as a whole it is not. It is a better card then the 670 regardless of price gap.

MxPhenom 216: lol. come on man. stop spreading disinformation. GTX 680 is not a good card. just because u made a mistake and bought it, it doesnt mean that somebody else should make the same mistake.

The only fast and worthy card after GTX 670 would be GTX 690. thats it.

gtx 680 is an awesome card if you are willing to spend the price premium for it. if not, get a 670, if not enough money for a 670, get a 660 ti. all gk104 based cards are really good and have good oc potential, too

i am not stupid and dumb to buy a GTX 680. To me and to the majority of people, there is nothing attractive about GTX 680.

Smart and wise people would go for GTX 670 instead.

unless of course you are just obsessed with having the best regardless of the benefits.......

So stop this madness please...........

Dude, you are blinded by ignorance. Don't stereotype shit like that. People will buy waht they want. IOf the 680 isn't for you don't buy it, but don't bash it like its a shit card when its is actually really quite good. Obviously the 670 is about 10% within it and can be the same performance when overclocked, but the 680 can overclock well as well and perform even better. So go get some new glasses and open your eyes. I didn't amke a mistake. I was sick of buying dumbed down cards after getting a 470 and I had the money to spend so I got the 680. Best upgrade I have ogtten in the last 4 years.

With that thinking John it better to get 7950 and OC :laugh:
I don't know what is wrong with him. But the shit he is spitting is really stupid.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright so im going to actually help the OP out

OP if you want the 680 get one. Don't listen to John.SA hes just made he can't afford one.

As far as reference goes the GTX680 has a better PCB/Cooler/clock-speed and so on. Mine is uber quiet and that's where the extra money is going in my opinion. After-market is a whole different story but still the GTX 680 has it's advantages, are they worth $100+ dollars, well that depends on what $100 is worth to you.

Ill incite and argument all I want. Get off your little high chair. The GTX670 is a gimped/dumb down card. One set of 192 shaders were disabled and the clocks have been lowered. That is what a gimped/dumb down card is. Features cut out of it that is in otherwise in the higher end flagship card, and in this case the GTX680.

You don't need a strong GPU if your building a system for a server and programming. You will want a strong CPU so I would look at a Core i7 3930k from Intel with a decent x79 board. If your going to do anything that involves compute and complex shader algorythms, don't even bother to get a Kepler GPU like the GTX680, as it is weak when it comes to compute. Look at AMD HD7970 or possibly a GTX580 if you want to go back a generation.

Who on gods green earth do you think you are noobtard? The GTX 680 is a GTX 680. It is the fastest single gpu card available on the market at any clock speed attainable. The GTX 670 is and always will be the gimped down little brother. It is clock for clock slower. The pcb isn't built as well and it uses lower binned parts. If I had the money to buy either I would buy a GTX 680 every single time. Get off your high horse. The GTX 680 is a better card hands down end of story.

This says it all! It does not ask for your opinion on another card so if you are not helping with the original question GTFO and do your trolling elsewhere. Final warning so please stay on topic.

@saknid

There's such a wide range of components to choose from, that I won't talk too many specifics.

For the CPU get something like a 2600K or 2700K for serious horsepower (4 cores, 8 threads with HyperThreading) and best overclocking, or the 3770K if you want the latest Ivy Bridge core (but they do run considerably hotter, which is their achilles heel). Any of these CPUs will serve you well. If you wanna go expensive and hardcore enthusiast, then get an LGA 2011 CPU, but be prepared to spend big and watch it suck power!

Get a decent brand mobo such as Gigabyte, Asus or MSI and put in 8 or 16GB RAM - standard 1600MHz modules are fine, since the RAM can't be overclocked anyway due to the CPU architecture.

An SSD is nice for a fast boot and responsive PC, but won't improve your framerate any - only the CPU and especially the GPU can do that.

Finally, get a top quality PSU from the likes of Corsair, Seasonic, Enermax etc. I recommend not going below 850W to give you plenty of headroom. This is the most important component by far, as a cheap piece of crap will cause stability issues and could even destroy your PC when it finally goes bang in a puff of smoke (literally). Read the PSU reviews from the likes of tpu and johnny guru to help you decide which one to get.

Check out my system specs for an example of what components to get.

and no, don't get the 670. There's a reason the top cards cost a lot more and you soon realize it when you get it. My top of the range 580 still performs beautifully to this day - £400 very well spent and I'll do it again come upgrade time.

Your grammar indicates otherwise.

We understand you have a chub for the 670, that doesn't make the 680 a bad card in any way other than your delusional opinion.:ohwell:

...The GTX 680 is a GTX 680. It is the fastest single gpu card available on the market at any clock speed attainable. ...
Tis not. Clock for clock it's red. (http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7970_GHz_Edition/28.html). But it's too noisy without custom cooling.

BUT, on topic, without a spending limit, yes, a GTX 680 is great. And if that's the card you want you won't regret it.

More importantly, buy a decent monitor to savour the glory. For Gods Sake don't buy anything less than a 1200p 24" screen.

A fast quad core cpu (get a 2600k before they're eol'd). A 3930k is overkill and not as good at gaming (it's slower than 2600k and doesn't clock as high as easily).

But put your OS and games on an SSD for fast loading and speedy everything.
