At lower resolutions like 1050, or 1080, yes there is little to no reason to upgrade from a 4xx or 5xx series card, however on 30 inch monitors like mine I do need a 680 to have things turned up to max settings.

Also if you want to bring your video card to its knees attempt to run the sleeping dogs benchmark on extreme settings, that gives even SLI rigs issues!:toast:
In nv surround my pair of 470's oc'd gets showed who's boss so I can agree with this there isn't enough of a frame buffer for 5040X1050.

For some reason I love that "sort of a camera" look of the EVGA Classified 680 :cool:

Looks good I rather like my set. How do yours clock with stocker HSF?
I'm not really sure what you mean by "stocker HSF". But I have my i7-2700k @ 4.4GHz, and it loads in the low-60s C even with both GPUs heating up the case. It's perfectly stable (or at least passes LinX and hasn't given any errors running WCG for over a month now).

I actually haven't gamed on these GPUs yet--I really want to (it will be so much faster than the HD4000 in my laptop) but I hate to have to suspend the WCG GPU app :(

That seems unfair to you, the owner of the hardware. If you want to game on them, suspend them. You'll still be contributing with ~25 threads running WCG, and it would probably only be a few hours of gaming, then you could re-enable the GPU threads.
I used to fold/mine bitcoins/crunch, but the power bill and heat in my room got to be too much to manage. With two overclocked 6850s and the 3820 at 4.7GHz, I would get home from work, open the door to my room, and it would be a blast of dry, hot air, sort of like opening the oven to check on what you're cooking. On more than one occasion while sleeping, I woke up to a nosebleed because of the hot, dry air. Ambient temp in the room with AC on full blast would get to around 86-88F, and then if I wanted sound I would have to turn on my vacuum tube amp which supplies another ~150 watts of heat.:nutkick:
I honestly don't know how some of you guys can stand to use your main rig for folding/crunching/mining and not sweat your asses off in that room. The amount of heat that those programs create at full-bore is just unreal.

Oh, I know. It's a tradeoff I'm voluntarily making. When I do want to game, I'll usually use the GTX460 SLI system--it's still more than fast enough and the hit to my output isn't as bad.

As far as the heat goes, I have a 10x14 dorm with its own AC unit, and while it can't keep the room at the 65F I have it set to, it's usually a pleasant ~72F in here. With no AC it would be brutal, but electricity is free here at school so I don't mind.

Running WCG seems to go far easier on the GPUs than FAH--they don't run as hot and don't heat up the room quite so much..good thing too!

After this weekend. My rig is going to look quite a bit different with tubes running all threw it :)
Putting it on life support eh?

You know, I just had a great idea for us PC gamers. Screw 2.0 and 2.1 speaker systems, since most of our desk areas are cramped we need to look into the soundbar market. ^^

I might get me a soundbar actually quite soon, any recommendations please PM me with a link. Probably going to go with LG because I trust them most.
I sort of have a sound bar...


not quite the same but it does sit ON my monitor and off the desk lol

2.0/2.1, you need 2x 2.1 systems. :toast:
I've done this before... it was awesome :D

such a friendly looking puppy

The "Laboratory"



The "Photo Studio"




Here is a photo shot from the studio

Nice lab, can't wait to set mine up in the spare room.

I miss my 470's those were amazing cards, and they clocked quite well.

LOL I had a 470, and I didn't realize how shitty they were till i got this 680. It uses like 75w less power and has doubled my FPS in every game I play. If not more.

I don't really agree with general opinion that the 4xx cards were terrible in everything else but performance.

My 480 is completely inaudible, runs cool, OC like crazy and power consumption difference makes no difference to me. I bet those people had not tried one with proper cooler, the stock coolers are fail. In fact, I think I would say this is the best card I have ever owned as a complete package. Even price/performance was like 50% higher than 580 at the price I paid for it.

If I can get a card that consumes less power but performs better, I will get that card 100% of the time. First gen Fermi was trash, I don't care how its looked at.

My system after the upgrade

new motherboard,RAM ,and CPU



My not so new GIGABYTE HD6850 OC (i have it for more then a year now) but still a very nice looking card




Cable management isn't the best, but not that bad



and the final result





also IMO the combination of the Corsair blue vengeance with GIGABYTE's blue PCB looks really nice.

Have you put 1 stick in black and 1 stick in blue? (RAM)
get them both in black!!!
Good catch, Rcoon!
Yes, good eye!

All motherboards have color coordinated Dimm slots, it is necessary to install your ram on the same channel for the memory to perform at it's best.

I'm guessing you like Bitfenix... :p

I would take it as a compliment that the guy wants to write about your build and the LAN.
I do like Bit Fenix very much, I am a convert, my only qualm is why in gods name doesn't the prodigy come with windows .. . :banghead:.

But I just love the quality of their products!
