So I was going to get a GTX 670 $379 is pricy but figured oh well might as well man up and go for the 680. There are lik way too many EVGA GTX 680's for sale on newegg and I have no clue which is best as the price for most is $469. :love:  I love that I can pick from a number of wonderful EVGA vidoe cards but lol I think Newegg has like 6 or 7 EVGA GTX 680's at the same price.

I really dislike evga mainly because of there stance on cooling you'll notice that there cooling is less then stellar. They use most of the time reference coolers and even there non reference coolers look quite reference. I would honestly go with something like these. But if you end up sticking with a EVGA card you wont be disappointed in sure. I just prefer better cooling.

I can do the first one you suggested but the other two are out of my budget. I hope that price sticks for the Gigabyte card at least till the first as that's when I get paid. If doesn't which of EVGA cards is best all have stock coolers it seems.

I would say the non overclocked one because it will draw the least amount of heat/power.

it looks quite reference to me. I mean yea its not a blower but still looks quite cheap cooling wise. But it is at good price indeed.

This one's easy, the EVGA Superclocked Signature 2. It comes with the highest factory overclock of all the EVGA options AND is the only one with a non-blower type fan, $450.


1.) wrong
2.) close...

my suggestion:
EVGA 02G-P4-2685-KR GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature+ w/Backplate 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Includes EVGA Backplate

What you would suggest at the price point? I don't see to many people jumping up and down about EVGA's coolers. Although EVGA as a company normally doesn't get to much heat and the 600 series does I concede not produce much in terms of heat/power.

Thanks for all the input guys!. On the first of November I am going to buy the Dual fan EVGA GTX 680 and since it is priced at $469 without anything saying was $499 or stuff like that the price is going to stick!. These prices are so cheap I love it, come December I am going to SLI these babies lol well after I buy a psu..
