Before I buy this though I just want some advice on whether I will be getting the most out of this card with my current build.
I have a Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Motherboard (supports pcie3 and am3+ cpus)
A Intel Core i7-2700K 3.5 GHz Quad Core Processor
and most importantly a Corsair TX750V2 Enthusiast Series 750W ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze PSU.
My two important questions are will the power supply be able to take this card? And will it bottleneck with my cpu, I do not want to be spending £370 on a card that i wont get the most out of, any insight on this please help!
Your power supply is more than enough to power 2 680s, so no problem. Your cpu is powerful enough to handle any current card right now (and I guarantee, it'll also be powerful enough for next gen cards), nothing to worry about.
NOTE: Your motherboard does not support AM3+ (or any AMD) CPUs.
Hey guys thanks for the reassurance guys, Ezio in particular, cheers for clearing that up man! and yeh I dont know why I said it was am3+ sorry about that. Does that matter though? its got me confused as to what it even is now!
I just gave it a quick google there and I found it hard to find some detail on it. I think it is just for AMD cpu's or something though right? And yeh jed I had to end up getting a different cooler, the stock cooler was very bad.
