I tried a few drivers last night. Finally settled on the 301.25, the only drivers where 3dvision worked for me at 1080p 24Hz. All the others would only work at 720p 60Hz for some reason.

Anyone know when we are getting a new WHQL driver? I heard rumours a new driver will be out this week, but not unified and will only work with the GTX 690 :thumbdwn:. The 600 series launch seems a bit strange, nVidia can't even supply enough GTX 680s but yet they are going to put out a GTX 690??

Nice!

Is that an 8-port PCIe connector with 2 ports blocked off? That's interesting.

I got a question for you guys, since I finally built my system, and now get to play games with Max.

What are the best settings for Anti Aliasing?

For example about to play Batman 2, and I have like 10 choices, default was FXAA (high), then got 2X/4X/8X MSAA, Nvidia 8X/16X/16XQ/32X CSAA

Since on my last machine could never put AA on, not really sure which one looks best for 1080p?

I will post some pics later. Just got to tidy up all the messy cables inside rig.

Well impressed with it. Especially bf3 and Skyrim, both run and look amazing;

Next game will be Batman-ac. Has the dx11 issues been fixed now?? Heard there was some issues with it on release.

Awesome looking forward to seeing your pics. Batman AC is better but I wouldn't call it fixed completely, the game still stutters at random times which is annoying, it does it in SLI & non SLI mode and every card seems to do it :(

One thing I noticed is horrible tearing, I might have to play with my settings.

Performance seems to be so-so. I mean it is pretty smooth overall but I notice my FPS will dip horribly at some points to 30-40

I guess according to this thread need to turn DX11

By the looks, it's a Silverstone TJ09 or TJ10

Its the TJ10. Not the easiest of cases to make cables look tidy trust me but im happy with the way it looks now. Would love to water cool as I like the way ut looks but ive never really looked into it.

Tried out Batman-ac, tbh I can't really tell much of a difference between the dx settings apart from the horrible stuttering it causes. The game looks lush with everything on max @ 1920-1080.

Ive also tried out Gta with the Icenhancer mod. There's some serious work gone into it and my rig copes really well with it. Sometimes dips in frames below 40 but doesnt happen that often.

God i love my new rig :D can't wait to get my 2nd 680!!

Nice, mate. Yeah the I love the TJ10 but yeah it wouldn't be the easiest of cases to keep clean of calbes because it doesn't seem to have the grommets to pull cables through and hide cables at the back. I have the Corsair Obsidian 650D and I love it, its the easiest case I have worked with to keep cables tidy etc. I also love the fact that the expansion cards are screw in, i hate the quick lock expansion slot solutions they never feel that secure.
Your rig is very nice and you will love the 2nd GTX!! Its awesome playing Battlefield 3 maxed out with 4xAA 16x and framerates never drop below the mid 90s and avg is around 140fps! also with 3D vision I can play Crysis 2 maxed out too and its silky smooth! a def step up from my GTX 580s in SLI

Thanks guys :) your specs look awesome too!

I just hope after all this money spent it will play almost anything for a good couple of years. Can't wait to try Max Payne 3, Future soldier, Crysis 3, Farcry 3 and anything else that's due.

The next few months are looking good :)

Excellent cable management. You can barely seem them at all.

I'm heaps worried. That's terrible cable management. Lost your touch I'm afraid. Might as well just give the whole thing away.

Got my EVGA GTX670. Battlefield 3 went from 40 fps to 60 fps at 1920x1080 all settings maxxed with 4xAA/FXAA.
