EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC+ 2GB Review

EVGA’s new GTX 680 SC+ is looking to capitalize upon the popularity of NVIDIA’s latest creation and with a custom backplate alongside higher than reference clock speeds, it has a serious chance to capture a good portion of the high end market.  However, is a $30 premium for this card money well spent?
