Like was said you can over clock the ASUS and be almost just as fast plus it is really quiet and besides you can get another one and go SLI and it will be a lot faster then one GTX-680.I was running two GTX-470's in SLI and it sounded like a jet engine takeing off when you overclocked it .The ASUS is Quiet and has a great cooling unit on it.

Trust me keep the Galaxy card. I have it and it's freaking amazing. Though they say it is loud, it really isn't half bad. It's quieter than my 560 Ti Hawks were. Fans don't go past 55 degrees in BF3 at every setting maxed at 1080p. Here is my 3DMark 11 score NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-2600K Processor,ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. SABERTOOTH P67 score: P11470 3DMarks that's at 1338 boosted and 7008 on the memory aka +45 core and +500 memory in afterburner terms. Hope this gets to you before you stick with the 670

I'm assuming that you CUII owners don't use any of the other slots on your motherboards. 3 slots for a video card? Ridiculous imho.

The ASUS CUII GTX-670 is just two slots.

Well, I just started playing Max Payne 3 with a 670 Windforce and it sais that (in the menu) I exceed my video memory if I try to put 8x AA on. It works with 4x AA, but I don't get more than an average of 30fps, with dips as low as 19fps.

Seems time to upgrade... What a shame... 7970 is it!!!

It's actually MP3, performance with MSAA on is not very good, regardless of the card.

I want to see what the 670 Power Edition can do with that unlocked voltage. Should close the gap on a 7970 with ease

Max Payne 3....aka a horribly coded POS (right now) that is quickly becoming this gens "crysis"...as in "yeah that card looks good... but can it do 60fps in MP3". ;)

Max Payne 3 is that bad? I'll have to try it out. What's your resolution?
