  1. for now the gtx 680 is ok all will do all things such as gaming with max settings so no need to go above when you will feel like its not enough then sli or maybe more higher card but for now gtx 680 is fine even hd 7970 will be good with less amount of money to buy just gives 7% less performance then gtx 680 and has way less price then gtx 680.:)

    Thanks for your suggestion will you please poll also.
    Because i just want to get an idea by the polling.
    It is really good to give a reason for the poll.
  3. i have given my vote to gtx 680.:)

    ok.
  5. GTX 690
  6. gtx 680 ... but atm 680 is 600$ + when 7970 is 460$ .. so go for 7970 ..... or 7970 CF .... that will the best .... so my vote goes to 680/7970
  7. GTX690

    I was DEAD SET AGAINST going with Crossfire/SLI but NVidia has announced that Kepler minimizes the stutter you get now. Read this:
    http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/article-keynote/

    (at bottom under "improved frame rate metering)

    Yep, I'm getting a GTX690.
  8. What's the difference between GTX 690 4xSLI and Quad SLI? I mean, the 690 only has one SLI connector last I saw and usually you can't run dual GPU chips in 4x configurations. Was it supposed to be GTX 680 4x SLI? If so, that's obviously fastest and the same price as GTX 690 Quad SLI.

    But I've got two questions for you:
    1) What monitors will you be using?
    2) Where are you gonna find that many Kepler chips because NVidia doesn't have them?
  9. If you're doing less than dual 3D monitors, I can't think of a game a single GTX 680 can't handle. I guess you couldn't MAX Crysis 2 and BF3 on Ultra in 3D. But I personally don't believe in spending an extra $500 for two games. Wait until Metro 2 comes out before you get a second 680.

    Yes dual cpu can't go for 4x SLI but they can go with 2xSLI which is referred as QUAD SLI.
    GTX 680 are designed to run for 4xSLI but not by every company models so its limited with some companies only.

    1)I have right now two monitors
    First monitor:-The resolution is 1680x1080p and 3D vision ready with 120Hz refresh rate.
    Second :-1280x800 with 85Hz refresh rate.

    Going to get a projector for the resolution of 5760x1080p.

    2)I will get it after 2 months when stocks will be flooded. :D

    I will be playing all games in 3D only.

    I was also thinking the same way.Have gone already to the article.
  13. Which projector has that resolution? Or are you getting three? I have a 1920x1080p projector at 96" and it's incredibly crisp.

    Yes,most probably three.
    Which model do you have?
  15. Have an older model Optoma HD80. It was the first reasonably priced 1080p DLP back in '08.

    ok.What price you got it?

    Will it be better to use a projector instead of monitors?
  17. I would not buy any of those options.

    best option would be 1 680 but given how things are, I would be much more tempted to buy 2 7950.

    same here .... 2 7970 or get one 680 .... but there will be 4g version of 680 listed to ...
  19. Back in the day it was $2500 USD. No idea what they go for now. One projector takes up a lot of space and decent screens are not cheap. Plus you have to factor in expensive replacement bulbs every so often. I'd go with three monitors.
  20. geforce 2 mx 32mb. Pentium 4. CS1.6 @ 640p 25fps here i come. Anyone else remember spending 60 bucks on that?

    I was also thinking that running cost will be also quite good and needs regular checks.

    I don't like AMD/ATI cards.

    Will you give me a reason for 7950 with respect to 680/690 lacks?

    May be getting a 4GB 680 will be also a good idea.

    much more performance for how much you pay and Overclocks amazingly.

    But I don't think so that 3D vision kit is supported by ATI/AMD graphic cards.
  26. darksalvatore said:

    Thanks for the links.But I will still prefer my 3D vision kit because Nvidia really takes care of the drivers pretty fast when compared to AMD/ATI.

    Nvidia 3D vision kit is still far better but after few years may be AMD/ATI will be at the lead. :D
