    Had to read that one a few times before I figured out how you got past the naughty filter, LOL :D

    At the end of the day, all Nvidia have done is remove the last 0 from their old line of cards. 6800 becomes 680. Inventive.

    @Somer_Himpson: Sure, but the fact that you can have someones used card for cheap doesn't change the retail price of the card. And we are comparing retail prices, right? Right?

    Ah poo... What happened to nVidia claiming they were going to wait to release Kepler?
    I was expecting a Q3 2012 release.. Oh well looks like I'll wait for 700series release for my upgrade.
    All you rich b*stards getting every GTX x80 make me jealous :p

    Damn Student life....

    460 SLI is decent setup - but will be a nice jump to the 780....

    Looks like a few of us are dropping the EVGA 580 love for something a little sweeter... I should all being well be picking up my glorious 680s in the morning :)

    Even if that is true, in todays market this still has decent performance per dollar. Not only that, the real replacement chip will use more power/heat, so in the end for some users an efficient card such as this is still worth it.

    "A pair for dual-link DVI ports"

    Looks like that top DVI port isn't Dual-Link?

    I asked you to confirm that on the first page... :(

    Ah well, at least it's clarified now... but it does mean that four monitors off one card becomes difficult if you want higher resolution displays... :(
