I am having Ramzinho help me out with some graphs instead of all the photos then i can show you how even a overclocked 2 GB GTX 680 can bite the dust with some of the tests in 1440P

With a 690 you are dulling it down. Start with just 1 and it will blow you away from the minute you turn it on. Check if you local microcenter has couple open boxes as you can save around 60 bucks.

Personally I'd avoid open box monitors. If they were returned, someone like us found something wrong most likely. The average person hooks up up and plays. We know better. biggrin.gif

It was hard for me to pass up an open box ASUS PB278Q which Neweeg sells for $519 but I resisted. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if its local as don't have to deal with shipping returns over just driving back even same day.

I could be a bit over thinking it, and maybe not worth worrying until more benches are out. Plus I love my 680 water cooler and I'm too lazy to set up a new GPU and wait for another bracket Fromm dwood haha.

Don't expect MIND BLOWING improvements with BF4. It WILL be a new game, and a refresh of Frostbite, but it won't blow the doors off a 680 2gb. Only thing that will really push bf4 over bf3 will be HD destruction, and more complex fire/explosions. It will look better, but not like 100% better. Count me in for the Beta though. biggrin.gif

With newegg I will never buy anything open box, with micro center since its a brick and mortar store, you can open the box and check it to make sure that everything is fine. Sometime ppl buy things and return it cos they didn't like it or their hardware could not support it. I have picked up a lot of open box items from micro center and lot of times you can tell if something has been used or not. So far I had to only return 1 item (a GPU) as I one of the cooling fans was not spinning.

I'm not endorsing it or saying its bad, just saying use caution when buying used/open box items.

Agreed. You guys near a MicroCenter are lucky. Great store.
