Man these things used to be cheaper. I remember Shimians being $300 and Yamakasi being like $320 few months ago.
Ok well thanks! biggrin.gif

Still a great GPU though don't get me wrong. It has a lot of power but will eventually bottleneck in 1440p or 1600p gaming oh higher demanding games.

 

Just my 2 cents.

 

But we do have few 690 users in the club whom are extremely happy with their GPUs.

post #1505 of 6172
actually... what if they made a dual GTX 660 Ti gpu? Weird idea i know but, it could be $750, and can be 6 gb VRAM since there are 3 GB models out.

Hey, there was a GTX 460 2Win.


All they need to do is to massively overclock that memory up to 1900 mhz though.

Aurias are nice too

 

How much are these in microcenter?

 

Honestly If I was living in USA, I would either go Overlord or Auria at this point.

they were $400... no shipping fee to boot when you go pick it up yourself anyway.

wait.... WHAT is an Auria exactly? some off-shoot brand from some company?

as far as I know they are also Korean. But I am not 100% sure.

 

I know Overlord is an American company though I believe they still import the panels from Korea.

A terrible misleading. Terrible and no excuse for that.

Not everyone knows about GPUs like us and there are so many people mislead even in this forum who bought a 690 thinking it has 4GB of vram. Shame really.

Still a great GPU though don't get me wrong. It has a lot of power but will eventually bottleneck in 1440p or 1600p gaming oh higher demanding games.

Just my 2 cents.

But we do have few 690 users in the club whom are extremely happy with their GPUs.
And this....very good points and I agree. The 690 is a great card, great power, but I can only imagine how misleading the amount of memory advertised on these cards can be for most people out there. Think about those people buying a single 690 for a Nvidia surround setup, whether it be 3x 1080p, 3x 1440p, or a very demanding 3x 1600p....in any of those situations the "real" 2GB of memory available on the 690 will just not cut it. Just as you said iARDAs, shame.

I am thinking about buying a second GTX 680 or if i sould wait for the GTX 770/780 next year
