Probably be some scratches, sorry to say. I like my stuff mint myself too.

That raises an interesting question. The fan assembly off my 690 is sitting in a box wrapped in cling film. Somebody on Ebay UK was recently selling them new at £20 each. What have other 690 owners done with them once they have watercooled - kept them or sold them? I can't see myself needing another card in the foreseeable future but even then it wouldn't be worth selling it for £20 in what is after all a niche market. It just occurred to me it might look nice mounted on a stand on my mantlepiece! smile.gif

keep them...u will need it for rma and resale purposes.
who knows how the ebay sellers got a hold of theirs, but if yours ever gets scratched or due to torx screws breaking in them, i guess ebay may not be a bad option to replace the stock cooler tongue.gif

I would imagine the ones on Ebay were surplus stock since I saw an EVGA 690 which was in a box already watercooled. I couldn't get over how all that metal was that cheap lol. BTW somebody did an analysis of how much the parts in a Samsung Galaxy S4 actually cost and it was only about $130 dollars all told.

They should have given the same quality build to Titan shroud. Lol
The actual cost of production (not mark up, marketing, sales, shipping, etc) of these gpus is no more than $100-$110
The rumor is that it costed Nvidia a grand total of $400 million to to develop the Geforce generation of cards. Each GPU chip itself cost $58 and this by far is the most expensive part of each graphic card. The PCB cost $13.40, but the most expensive stuff on the PCB is the memory. For example lets say Nvidia decides to make a 128 bit memory card, it uses 8Mx16 chips. Now with that said, the total number of chips is eight, and each chip costs $3.50 so that's $28 for the memory. So adding up $58+$13.40+28 will be a grand total of $99.40 to make a graphics card from materials.

No stutter. Proof. GTX 690 playing 2560x1440 Resolution. It's only campaign though not multiplayer. I run multiplayer smooth as well though. Occasional server hiccup.

BF3 Ultra Mode
Antialiasing Deffered - OFF
Antialiasing Post - HIGH
Motion Blur - ON
Anisotropic Filter - 16X
Ambient Occlusion - HBAO



EDIT: Noticed it's only your fourth post in....if no one has told you yet....Welcome to OCN. biggrin.gif
