OK, so I am adding another GPU and turning my 580 to a physx card and I am getting a 690 I was gonna get 2x 680's but i think a 690 is a better idea now which one msi, evga, asus, xfx? Im leaning towards the evga and asus reasons why my 580 is a evga but my motherboard in a asus rog board so I love both companies but which one do I want to give 1200 dollars for a gpu.
EVGA for warranty and step-up program...not that you would be stepping up,but you never know.......I'm in the step -up program for my GTX 580 Super clocked to upgrade to a GTX 680......been waiting patiently....
well why not I'm gonna be running 24 gigs of vengeance 1600mhz ram 6 tb 7200 rpm hdd and 1 tb of ssd 3 27" monitors ply a tatl1ty x-fi sound card and massive liquid cooling and then running the new asus rog mobo with 2x 4.6extreme core i7's by the end of next year its gonna be around a 20grand system but it should do to program design and run anything i throw at it
Rock on bro!!! As far as which brand of GTX 690, it doesn't matter, they are all reference designs and there is absolutely no difference between them. The only differences will be in the warranty and extras that come inside the box. XFX doesn't make Nvidia cards.
I would lean towards the Asus as I have had RMA experiences with both Asus and MSI, and found Asus to be better in that regard.
my systems are surrounded by asus hardware and razor peripherals I'm a die hard for those to companies between my 2 g73sx laptops and multiple computers built i proudly belong and rep ROG but beyond that I have seen evga have killer gpu's besides trying to oc my 580 too much is hard it is very finicky if I don't find that sweet spot it'll crash instantly
