Yeah, it was a great card. 1300 out of the box. But was crashing, had a broken DVI adapter, and when Newegg sent me a new card, I received the same one, lol. It was a great card. See signature for review. One thing to note, the cooling was inadequate even with 3 fans. I was hitting 65-68c@1320.

My honest opinion is that the capability of these cards far exceeds what they want us to think , by allowing us to OC at volts 1.3-1.8 I am willing to bet that these cards would give their next tier of cards a run for their money. In all seriousness if people are reaching 1500+ mhz and these cards drop $300-350 in price with the release of 7xx series , who is really going to pay 500-700 for a kepler card that will put out 5-15% maybe not even that much with how these cards OC. Come on , a classified 680 hit 2k ( I know it's under extreme conditions) and that's insane and kinda sets the standard much higher for their next cards. Granted I might be looking into it too much but I really can't think of any other reason other then people blowing up their gpus.

Just to add , if 580's were able to hit 1300-1500mhz and you owned one who you really have dropped 500-700 on a 680 in it's current state with locked voltage?

Thanks, It's really the only way I can look at it. These cards are damn powerful under the right conditions and Nvidia wants to control that power.

Plausable to say the least. Definitely plausable. They lose some of the overclocking community this generation, but more than make up for it in sales next gen by making the difference in performance worth the purchase thinking.gif

What the heck? They sent you the same card as a replacement? Pretty scummy on their part mad.gif

I've had issues with newegg sending me used GPUs as new in the past (with the 7970), I honestly prefer amazon.com for purchases these days. Their return policy is hassle free as well, newegg is luck of the draw.
