Nice card. My 590 is safe for now though.

I love how nividia holds back the good stuff because they don't need it yet... Putting the consumer first.

I'm also thinking I'll stick with the green team :)

I have nothing against ATI though and their stuff is great (ati has never gave me any issues).

What do you mean by "the good stuff"? Would you rather have had a $699 product released that featured the HD 7970's paper launch and subsequently shitty availability?

Hmmm. Switch to the 680 and loose about 19% but gain better power savings, less heat, + the few other benefits....OR wait and see. I think I will wait and see although it is mighty tempting. Although saving for a car and house is a good idea as well.

Oh and great review Sky! Of all the reviews I have read yours is my favourite.

Great review as always SKY! Love the results so far. I'm curious to see what a pr would do. Will a sli review be coming soon?

Now that my interest is peaked, I would like to see what their flagship card will be, if this isn't the one for this gen.

I do believe it's time to cash in a few toonies, hehe.

There is a Tri-SLI "review" at EVGA.com in their forums.
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 - Single, 2-Way and 3-Way SLI

Oh and here is a good article showing off EVGA's lineup. Looks like 4gb cards are coming in a few months.

The big question is though, will there be enough bandwidth to make use of all 4GB or will it be another GF110 scenerio.
