    Damn that's a hefty price tag.

    I SAW IT FIRST.

    I just bought the only four in stock.

    But really, nobody would buy this unless they either one, are rich/won the lottery or two, someone who wants to have the biggest e-penis in the underworld of the internets.

        You're future-proofed for quite a long time. The GTX 580 is a great card.

        Hey look! Something overkill for tri-monitor setup! Hm...

        $500 GTX 680 + $500 GTX 680 = Two lower clocked GTX 680's that'll run hotter and louder on one card for $1,200.

        Am I missing something? o.O

        And yet 3 times the performance!

        It's starting price is $1,200, since they knew the second they went on sale, people would buy them regardless. Still not worth getting at that price, the 590 was a hell of a lot better price wise, despite the better temps and power draw on the 690. Would consider if this was <$800. Also, the design for the card has always been like that, and won't really ever change. The fan is meant to pull air in, and shoot it onto the GPU/heatsink and blows heat out the back, while the back PCB showing side dissipates heat for the GPU. I only prefer a backplate if I watercool.

        You go on about sleeving cables and yet you dont see the point a back plate? MINDFUCK. A backplate acts like a rad disapating the heat and also looks amazing.

        In the custom watercooled PC's I've built, I've noticed the backplate has had no affect on helping dissipating the heat AT ALL. I've actually noticed on some GPU's that it'll raise the temp by a couple degrees, and others it made no difference (it was mostly based on the design of the cooler. One's that only shot air out the back didn't have a temp. change, and one's that pushed air directly head onto the GPU gained a couple degrees Celsius.

        You can run that for the rest of your life because you're running it on some shit like 1024x768. :ROFL:
