GTX 680 FTW Crashing Computer *PLEASE HELP* - Page 3

The I/O is overhanging the box, yes, and I cannot boot into windows or ubuntu, and I have not overclocked. I've also tried the GPU in all three slots.

OK, so I'm going tomorrow to get a new graphics card, hopefully this one works. At this point I'm really torn between a 670 4GB, another 680 4GB or 2GB, a 7970, or waiting until the 8xxx. I'd like to get nVidia so I can use ubuntu if I choose, but it is not a necesity. What do you all recommend? Please include brand and model.

I've heard not to buy gigabyte because their cards are voltage locked. Is this true? Also, the cooler doesn't matter too much to me, and I think I'd rather get a reference model of the card because I'd like to water cool later. I can spend $600 maximum, but I for sure will SLI in the future and I'd like to maybe get a keyboard within my $600 budget. Thanks for the input.

Every brand now are voltage locked....so no matter what are the brand you choose, you will see voltage locked....but you can flash the BIOS on your card to the unlocked one....(1.23 Max)

and for the card, I recommend EVGA FTW 670 4GB

Did you return the first one? Did you try it out in another PC to make sure it's defective?

So I went with the Galaxy 680 2GB. The graphics card was definately failing me. I got the 2GB because I can upgrade in the future if I feel it is inhibiting my performance. And if that is the case I can just sell it and get a 780 or 880. Thanks everyone for the help!
