Thats an easy choice there bro. Screw EVGA.

The Lightning looks like an awesome card, but to be fair it's 4GB vs 2GB. I cannot buy a 2GB card, hopefully they come out with a 4GB Lightning.

I've always preferred vent out the back fans like the classified has versus the spread heat everywhere top down fan of the Lightnings. Makes for easier air-cooled sandwiched SLI/Crossfire config's although I will end up on water for whichever card I go with.

While I agree that EVGA's Classy is expensive, Amazon has the 2GB Lightning 680 up for 609.99 (that is the PRIME Amazon in house price, not marketplace).


Not counting tax

2 Classified (4GB VRAM)= $659 x 2 + $100 (EVbot) = $1419.98
2 Lightning (2GB VRAM) = $609.99 x 2 = $1219.98

Basically 100 bucks extra per card for the extra Vram. Also, I am a bit worried as I want to run these under water at anyone making a block for the Lightning. For the 580, wasn't Bitspower the only company who made them? I don't know, I am asking.

I know that there is a block under way from EVGA.

Yeah, it seems like the Classy might be the way to go, since the MARS III isn't going to be released until Q3 (No source, sorry). Thing is, I want to be able to consistently stay above 120FPS on BF3 maxed, maybe in 3d, so that's really driving my GPU choices now. If only the Rampage IV had more slots, then I'd be good. However, I'm still stuck on GTX 690 x2 vs Classy GTX 680 x3...

I am absolutely sick of the question dodging, Jacob did it regarding EV Bot and Alex is doing it here too. People here aren't idiots and want to make an informed decision, playing games/question dodging won't matter much because the answer will come to light eventually, but I don't want to be a guinea pig. A simple yes or no will suffice.

Sorry, I was busy sleeping and not being a zombie.

But I came in the office today to set this up:
298

This was on my first try, and frankly I NEVER overclock.

More to follow...

Edit: good lord the resolution sucks ass.

I can't wait to see what the Lightning can do. I just saw that the Classy 680's broke the 2GHz barrier on LN2.
