nVidia should of made 4gb standard, AMD have gone 3gb with the 7970. Mind you unless you are gaming with multi screens then its probably over kill for most? maybe that has helped them keep the cost of the card down?

Im using 301.10's. They run ok for me, only problem is with Skyrim, if I have SLI and 120hz enabled i get random black flashes on the screen, pretty weird. If I disable either SLI or go down to 60hz the problem goes away. This also happened with my GTX 580SLI setup on 296drivers. Hopefully it gets fixed soon!

A couple of notes for anyone considering this model.

1100MHz seems to be the max stable core OC without voltage increase.
I can go beyond this in almost everything but in Unigine Heaven benchmark it crashes at 1150MHz. So in my book once normal operation is no-longer possible in every scenario, there's your limit.

The RAM is fine at 6600MHz, I haven't pushed it further as the additional 2Gb of VRAM is on the backside of the PCB with absolutely no cooling! Quite an oversight IMHO Palit!

Anyways...

I'm going to put some Enzotech passive copper RAM sinks on there as a precaution.

What do you think???
I suppose it will break the warranty...
Go for it... I did.

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 . 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.

Default Re: Official "I just got a GeForce GTX 6xx thread"

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?
