My System Specs

Default just ordered my 670!!!

I guess memory express jumped the gun because it is 2:36 AM and I just ordered my EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SuperClocked 2GB.



I shipped it air. I sure hope it gets here before diablo 3. Anybody know where the Mem Express warehouse is?

^^ I actually think this card is kind of funny lookin and can't wait to put a water block on it. Notice the short PCB and extended shroud for the fan?

Say goodbye to Intel HD 2000 LOL!

I really really really wanted a 680 but I feel it's overkill for my needs. Even a 670 is probably overkill for me but the kepler cards just seem so promising. Plus I love the low power consumption/heat.

Memory express ships from Calgary. Congrats on the purchase.

Just out of curiosity, why did you order the 680 when the 670s were on the horizon?

Fellow 680 owner here and I have to say, the 670 launch today is making me a little sad. I love my 680 and will keep it but can't help but be a little jelly over the 670's amazing price/performance ratio

I actually got it sent to a friend in the US about 5 weeks ago, and he only just sent it last week hence it getting here soon, I had the money so im happy with the 680, and i thaught that was just a backplate not a retardly short PCB

I got home today at 5pm, jumped on Newegg.ca, saw the 670 Superclocked Evga card in stock, and ordered one by 5:04pm lol.

I'm extremely excited! Especially since the reviews put it on par with the 680 once overclocked a bit.

Congrats guys!

If the 670's do 1200mhz on average, then it's a GREAT value (even at $400).

I cancelled my online order and replaced the order for pickup since they actually have some in a local stock!
