Hey i want to buy a new graphics card and i was thinking about the 680 GTX gigabyte OC, what are your thoughts guys ? are there any better cards out there ? i'm mainly buying it for skyrim and my 6850 have been giving me alot of trouble and i know that skyrim isn't a big friend of AMD's but either way i prefer Nvidia . . any thoughts you have guys ?
Hard for me to recommend the GTX 680 atm. Just too much money for what you're getting. Yes, it's a great card but a GTX 670 is not far behind it at all and you'd be saving a good bit. If you're willing to split away from your Nvidia only statement, I would REALLY recommend a 7970 or even a 7950 since they OC really well and are a good bit cheaper than the Nvidia competitors for the same performance.
I just get some very nasty performance on skyrim including some blue screens and i read around in the forums and i'm not the only one with this problem, people that have switched to nvidia had this problem solved.
So i'm really not for AMD and prefer Nvidia, so you guys would recommend 670?
Because i really would like the best thing out there . . except the 690 because that is really a strech
I have my budget and really i don't mind spending money for something to last me a long time.
