Best GTX680?

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering what the best 680 would be in general. I do overclock, I also can get a 4 gb version just in case for future proof because I don't plan on upgrading for the next 3-4 years. I play on a 1980 x 1080p monitor. I might grab a 1440p monitor later down the road. I'm thinking about getting the EVGA 680 Classified, I don't really care about the EVbot controller being removed from the GPU, because I would have to spend 100 dollars on EVbot.

The best GTX 680 is the MSI Lightning 680. It is the only Kepler card with true voltage control via software. A good majority of them are also capable of reaching 1300MHz+ on the core on air. On water, some are capable of 1400MHz+. Easily the most powerful single-chip card in the current market.

Which one do you have? The PE or the regular?
