Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 GC

Does anyone have experience with this card? It looks really cool and is overclocked a pretty decent amount. I only found one review on it and they did it in SLI. And how reliable are Galaxy cards? I've only ever had EVGA. Thanks.

  1. I hear they have good customer service, they got quite a few models of the 680's out. Reliability is impossibe to predict though, check some newegg reviews.
  2. There's only about 6 reviews on there, but it sounds pretty good. I'm just weary of trying a new company..
  3. EVGA ASUS MSi...

    +1 to be even more clear i simply wouldn't buy a card if it wasn't one of these but i am picky when it comes to spending hundreds of dollars only the best will do for me.
  9. Are you planing on gaming on two or three monitors? if so this these are the 680s for you http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130798 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127695
  10. No, I'll only be gaming on one 1080p monitor

  12. Quote : MSI's GTX 670 Power Edition uses the famous Twin Frozr IV cooler from the MSI Lightning and comes with a large clock speed boost out of the box, making its default clock speed even higher than GTX 680 stock clocks. MSI is asking a $30 price premium for their card, which doesn't look unreasonable, given the improved cooling and higher clocks.TechPoweUp gives The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition an 9.7 rating http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_670_Power_Edition/
  13. Also i recommend you get one of these cards if your mind is set on getting a 680 compare here with the 680's :


    9.8 rating MSI, the GTX 680 Lightning

    I owned a Galaxy card before and while I didn't have any problems I couldn't overclock to much above the stock speed. I use to be a BFG guy till they stop making cards then I used the Nvidia cards. I use EVGA and I'm quite happy with the cards and will choose them again for future purchases. Plus I really like the EVGA precision tool for tweaking your cards (OC, Fan Speed and Voltage).

    Gameplay Summary

    The highest stable overclock with voltage on the MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning using the default BIOS had a significant performance increase compared the overclock without voltage tweaking. In Max Payne 3 it was 8.9% faster than the overclocked MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning without voltage tweaking and 14.1% faster than the stock video card. BF3 Singleplayer the highest overclock was 16.1% faster than its stock settings. In BF3 Multiplayer it averaged 74 FPS and was 9.8% faster than the overclock without voltage tweaking, and 15.3% faster than the stock video card. In Batman it was 7.7% faster than the overclock without voltage tweaking and 14.5% faster than the stock video card. In The Witcher 2 it was 8.9% faster than the OC without voltage tweak and 14.3% faster than the stock MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning.

    Basically, the performance increase between the overclock with and without voltage tweaking was higher than the performance increase the stock MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning experienced from the overclock without voltage tweaking. In other words, voltage tweaking provided over double the performance increase compared to the overclock without voltage tweaking.

    With fans at 100% the GPU temperature on the default BIOS increased to 62c using voltage tweaking.

    The LN2 BIOS had an even higher overclock which pushed the GPU extremely close to 1400MHz, and put the memory over 7GHz GDDR5. In MP3 it was 8.1% faster than the Overclocked AMD Radeon HD 7970 and 18.1% faster than its stock settings. In BF3 SP it was 4.3% faster than the Overclocked AMD Radeon HD 7970 and 17.9% faster than the stock MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning. In Batman the overclocked MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning was 16.2% faster than its stock settings, and 19.3% faster than the Overclocked AMD Radeon HD 7970. In The Witcher 2 it was 2.4% faster than the Overclocked AMD Radeon HD 7970 and 14.3% faster than the stock settings. The overclock on the LN2 BIOS increased the performance above the Overclocked AMD Radeon HD 7970 in every game.

    With the fans at 100% the GPU temperature on the LN2 BIOS increased to 73c using voltage tweaking and 300% Power Limit.
