If you feel like you really need a 680 4Gb, I would suggest ASUS or Gigabyte...EVGA is overrated but that's me whistle.gif

It doesn't give you extra performance that's worth an extra $100 to buy that card thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif to spending $659

If you mean Gigabyte Windforce 680 4GB, I vote it...Classified maybe have a best overclocker for 4 GB, but unless you go into water, The fan is not as good as Gigabyte...

Edit : Plus Classified don't have an EVBot again, and the fan on the card is limited to only 55% (based on newegg user feedback)

The bad thing is that there are not enough of overclocking tests/reviews of 4gb gtx680 cards...
I wanted ASUS 4gb one, but I cannot find any good reading about how good it overclocks frown.gif
Gigabyte was second on my list. And EVGA VHS casette look doesn't look like its ventilation is on par with cards that have heatsinks and multiple fans open...

My only question is why you think you need 4GB of VRAM?
Go with the typical 2GB and you will have more options for a LOT less money and NO performance impact.

Read This article.
Or skip to page 11 for the conclusion.

1920*1080 = 1gb-1.5gb
2 monitors = 3gb
2-3 monitors with high resolution = 4gb

He will be better off with 4gb

I'll always buy EVGA when it comes to Nvidia cards, their cards are top notch and the support is second to none.

I'd go for the EVGA one just because that's what I have. tongue.gif

Maybe a bit odd, but I when play Crysis 2 @ Max and @HIgh Res Textures, My VRAM is go up to 2020 MB use 304.79 @1080p

and for OP, pick whichever brand you prefer...If you prefer ASUS, then go for it...you will not be disappointed, if you care MUCH about overclocking, pick up the Lightning from MSI 2gb. Since I never found 4 GB version card with a good overclock, except Classified.
