Great card...almost as fast as the 680/7970....price is still too rich for me.

Ohhh and unlike the 680 this is a hard launch...with 4 models available to buy right now...

I have two EVGA GTX 670 SC on the way to replace my EVGA GTX 470 SLI.
Should be awesome...

The turbo clock is always up over 1000-1150MHz in most games. So much for the max of 980. This turbo feature is useful, but damn it's misleading for reviews. I want to see all cards reviewed at standard clocks and overclocked for a fair comparison...

Mine ramps up to 1058MHz under load. Still keeps temps of 60c which is impressive. At 19x12, no MSAA, SSAO and all the rest on Ultra, it maintains a steady 59/60fps on BF3. Good stuff.

I wasn't in a hurry to buy a new gen card with my 480 still working fine. But I read the [H]'s review of the 670 and I said NOW!!! ..So, I got me a MSI 670 comin'

Now that it's on it's way, I started reading other reviews and I am getting more excited about it.

I usually read all the reviews and user comments before I purchase new hardware, but when I read that this card could be the new 4200ti , that hooked me :)

Mine is on the way, Gigabyte version. Gonna replace the 480 SLI with 670 SLI, seeing as 670 SLI uses slightly more power than 1x 480 lol

You know that you are completely ate up with it, when your new 670 shows up and you send everyone home from your business so you can take the afternoon off to play with your new toy :)

This 670 is surprising me in every which way... Playing Diablo 3 at full settings, card is using 29% power, not even bothering to turbo, and it sits at 39c, 39% fan speed. Talk about efficient! Can't wait for a second one!

Got one today shipped from TN, the other is coming from CA, both from Newegg, so unfortunately they did not both arrive yet.
Been running D3, several runs of Heaven benchmark, so far no problems.
Boosts to 1189mhz stock, really looking forward to the second card showing up.

Got my 670 overclocked (via turbo) to 1250Mhz Core, 6500Mhz effective memory, max temp I've seen so far is 59c.

Received my other card today, so far so good, and what an enormous upgrade from the 470 SLI.
The thing I really disliked about my 470's was the noise, man were those loud under load.
Compared to those, the 670's are whisper quiet.

Shame that EVGA sent out a bad batch of cards, I've used their cards a lot and have had tremendous luck with them.
Hopefully mine hang in there.

Just checked Newegg, they only have the Galaxy card in stock now, these 6xx cards sure don't last long before selling out.

Got a MSI GTX 670 OC earlier today. Am very pleased with it so far, then again, this is my first High-End card as over the years ive always stuck with mid-range. Hope this will last longer than my 8800GT and 5850 did. :)

Cool, I get one monday, I want to see if it will come close to my 2 470 gtx's Sli overclocked to 480 speeds. Anyway I will sell the 470's. It will be in a computer I have for older games and a backup for everything else.:D

I had three GTX-470's running tri-SLI at 800/1800 and my two asus DirectCU II GTX-670 just running them at stock and they are faster then all three of my GTX470 .I overclocked the 670 +100 and hit 16234 and at stock they did 15276 and all three of my GTX470's overclock the highest I hit was 14357 and they were super loud and these GTX-670's are just silent.Even at 75% I can hear them over my case fans.I just don't see any reason to get the gtx-680's fast as these cards are.

I just recently made the jump to a i7 3930K/X79 setup with 2 GTX 670's in SLI. I'm really surprised how great these cards are, I'm comming from an old i7 920/X58 with GTX 560 Ti SLI. It took a while for me to get both cards though, but I'm really happy now. Just need to purchase better cooling for my CPU and then I will OC this beast.

They are tricky to overclock ,I can leave it at default on core but set my power limiter to 122 and raise the corevoltage to +50 and it tops out at 1200mhz according to the log file on GPU-z.Even when I set everthing at default values I get readings over 1080mhz and it says it supposed to booast to 980mhz.But I do love how quiet these ASUS Direct CU II GTX-670's are.I had three MSI GTX-470's and they sounded like a jet when running heavy loads.These two GTX-670's are faster then my three GTX-470's were,plus I use a lot less power now.
