580,s or 680,s

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all

little help if poss thx

what it is i got myself a pair of EVGA 3GB GeForce GTX 580 Classified Hydro Copper like 2 months ago (and plz dont tell me why not wait frown.gif )

but i iam still waiting on 1 from evga as they not sent them to the shop i got them from so iam thinking of canceling it and trading/upgrading the 580 i have in pc now.

So what iam asking is would it be worth it as the 680 is like £200 cheaper than the 1 i alrdy have waiting on orderd and this way i could get 2x 680s as iam in the shop + trade/upgrade the 580 in pc now for a 3rd 680.

any help would be much appreciated thx.

If the rumors are true, then yes, but no one has actually benched the 680 yet, so it's hard to say. What are you planning on running that needs 3x680s?

Also fill out your sig so we know what you are running since there aren't many boards that can actually 3-way SLI PCI-E 3.0, and if you're running PCI-E 2.0 it is not worth it to get the 680s...

PCIE 2.0 is fine for the 680. Quad 480's won't even max the bandwith of PCI-E 2.0 yet.
In progress.

Hi thx for the reply

iam running

asus rampage 4 extreme
i7 3930 @ 4.4G
16 gig ram

and for the 3x 680,s is only because i got 2 of the 580,s and 1 is on back order and 1 is in my pc
so i cant take this back and iam running 3x24" monitors and cant do it on the 1 580.

So what my plan was upgrading the 1 in my pc with a 680 off the evga site as they do a 90 upgrade from the day u buy them,
so i my thinking was to go to the shop today and cancel the 580 thats on back order and just get 2x680,s and when and if i do get the 3rd
put it in my pc or give it my son or sell it.

it was just i been waiting for evga to send the 580 i been waiting on to the shop but it seems they cant be arsed due to them making the 680,s.
