Fudzilla : You might have remember that we said the GTX 680 price wasn't carved in stone and could be easily changed. Today it looks like Nvidia did just that. The new price that partners recieved this morning is $499.
I have the money , Just waiting 4 release here where i live then i will by it 1st day
Waiting on the GTX 690. I'm interested to see comparisons between it and my 590's. I wouldn't get one. My 590's are all the power I need for now. By the time I upgrade again a single card card solution will probably out perform my dual 590's.
Same price as GTX 580, pretty much. Hopefully the 7970 will now drop to about $399 or less. I won't be buying, though. I already have a GTX 580 and I have not been left wanting in terms of performance in any game.
Same here. I found a GTX 580 for around $350, and have plenty of power for now. By the time this thing is too slow, they'll be things better than a 680.
I need this upgrade since i'm only rolling with one 570
May I ask why? Unless you're planning to go multi-monitor and 3D vision, I can't see the need for this part until something far more taxing comes along (UE4 games).
The new supposed features of the 680 caught my eye
No you don't, it's not like you're running an 8800 in your rig
I think he means he WANTS this upgrade :) I do see his point though, a 570 struggles when you max some games. I have 2 570's but want to go back to single card gaming, too much noise and heat with sli!
I need this upgrade since I'm rolling with one 280
just buy another GTX570! then you will have more power than one GTX680!!
and a bunch of 500 series cards will go on craigs list for cheap :) i love people who upgrade for no reason.
Me Too! When the HD7000 came out i dumped my 2 HD5850 and got 2 HD6950 for $400! Unlocked them both to HD6970 and now i got more power than a HD7970! My GTX560ti 1000mhz SLI is on par with a GTX680 so no need to upgrade that! New Cards are lovely but I rather have the same power or more and save some cash for games!
Awww ffs i just bought 560ti 448 i should have waited :(
Well as i said in the Top comment i will by this card 1st day. What i didn`t say is that its for my other gaming rig. The one i am on now: i5-760quad (vanilla 2.8ghz) I [email protected] 3.8 ghz Watercooler 12gb ram Gtx-560ti oc 1tb ssd hd 650psu 2tb regular hd 28inch led monitor The new computer i7-extreme 3.8 (6 cores) Will tweek it to 4.0 (I think) I think around 8 gig high end rams I move over my ssd hd I put my watercooler from the old one to the new one And i put in my 700w psu And to top it all off: My 680 kepler card
$499 is still quite a bit more than I would like to spend on a GPU and considering that I only game on a single 1680x1050 display, it would frankly be overkill for what I need. The 660/660ti/670 is what I'm planning on. Which one I end up with is going to depend on price vs performance vs what I see myself needing over the next 2 years.
