It will run well with one card and the mods ?

At 1920x1080 it will. My 2 cards run it fine at 6000x1200 , so yours will run 1 monitor easily.

I don't know what mods ya'll are talking about, but I presently have about 10 mods installed, some to improve the graphics, and it plays fine on my single 5870. See no reason why it wouldn't on a GTX 680.

Mostly i just use the mods in the Skyrim thread. There was the HD mod and a half dozen others.

Mine showed up earlier this week. Thing is FAST...and QUIET!! So much quieter than my OC'd 470's were and also very little heat output. Very impressed. The lack of noise and heat alone was practically worth the upgrade.

Right now, I've got the maximum overclock boost set at 1325mhz on stock voltage. I ran the crysis and farcry 2 benchmarks several times as well as about an hour of skyrim and diablo III beta last night to test stability. So far so good.











Where did you get these backing plates from? Did they come with your cards? Cause mine didn't.

I'm not really sure to be honest.

They help a little with heat, and they stiffen the card, which is useful with heavy heatsinks.
