Price on the 690 is not released? That's what I was talking about.

Also, I meant the 7990 compared to the 690. I had been awake for like 15 minutes when I typed that.

But, to those prices, the 7970 is 50 more BUT, it beats the 680 by 25% on performance. It costs 10% more but has 25% more performance. That's much more for your money.

Ah my bad. I really don't care about either. I'm just waiting for the 670 to come out so 570 prices will drop and I can get another.

That would be nice. I might go for EVGA's stepup program. Trade them my 560ti 2gb for a 680 (obviously I add cash). We will see how that pans out. I'm probably just going to get another one of these cards. 4gb of vram in 2 560s sounds good

Digging some of the new features with the GTX 680! I'm really curious to learn more about how GPU Boost works. I'm pretty eager about the hair effects too, that looks great.

Hahaha! Mine got real toasty when I moved into my new place earlier this week. I am only using a GTX560ti 2gb though, so I'm just chalking it up to ****ty cooling upstairs.

That's what I'm wondering. Doesn't seem like the smartest way to SLI. Though, what do I know, I've never done it before.

I'm not sure, but what is that external fan with the hoses for?

Watercooling rad, but it looks like a closed system for the PSU only.

That's what I thought. I can't imagine how hot that setup gets.
