Hell i could even spin it for $300+ considering there isnt even any stock in new zealand, they aint even on back order, theyre on pre order. I wont though becuse that would be pretty D-Bag.

Goodluck with stock, OP!

Yeah I most likely am gonna get a gtx 680, but what do you think about the zotac one? Is it a reliable brand? or should I get the evga 680 superclocked edition?

If i had the choice i would buy EVGA, but they are understandably putting all their chips on the hydro coppers, so basically if your comfortable with the companys warranty and you trust their RMA support, theres no reason not to with a reference card.
However Zotac never used to be so reputable, they have got a lot better as far as im aware and i would be prepared to buy a Zotac card for sure. Free A.C. 1,2 and Rev is pretty neat too.

I really dont like that orange stripe though, big turn off in my all black and white 600t.

EVGA SC/+ are easily acheived clock levels, but with a warranty, so that may be worth going for, or just buy reference and give it a few weeks then OC it, honestly i dont think you will need to OC this badboy though. Big ups for that backplate, so for $10 + $20 backplate, I would rather a SC+ if i had the time. But im playing 1080p BF3 so this isnt going to need an OC.

Do keep us posted on what you get, OP.
