  1. Mobo isn't compatible. You want a Z77 chipset mobo.
  2. Are you running 1920x1200 or 2560x1400? If its 1200, get the 680, if its 1400, get the 690 if you want to max out 98% of games. You also need a Z77 board and I'd get an 850w PSU for a 690 minimum.

    More imporantly, get a decent monitor such as Dell's U2412M for 1200 or a U27 IPS model for 1400. Bottom line, what resolution and what games?

    But GTX 690 isnt beter even on 1920x1200?
    680 is weaker on 1200 than the 690?
    What games?...um.....
    black ops 2 ,ac3,nfs mw,far cry3,borderlands2,arkham city,
    prototype2,bf3,warfighter,max payne 3..... :bounce:
  4. Yes, but it's not needed at that res.
  5. The 690 is built for 2560 x 1400, you'd get an easy 60FPS at that resolution. To get 60FPS+ at 1920x1200 you'd get a 680. The choice is yours. You really don't need anything above 60FPS, I'd take a quality IPS Ultrasharp over 120Hz TN panel anyday.
