Solved Which GTX 680 is the best/quiet/cool? Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Graphics Product Last response: June 20, 2012 8:50 PM in Graphics & Displays Share no_way_today June 20, 2012 4:56:22 PM Hello, Im about to buy a new gtx 680, which i think is better than 7970, even the ghz editions. I was thinking to buy the Palit GeForce GTX 680 Jetstream 4gb. 2 gb is so less? Is there any better or do i have to go for the 2gb or even the gtx 670? Ive got a 3570k +z77mobo. Like to play bf3.

I have mine overclocked quite a bit and it works great. xtreme5 a b U Graphics card June 20, 2012 5:10:59 PM hey, don't think even about the bottlenecking, you've already chosen the best brand.
