What a beauty!!! Very nice, love the lighting !!!!

Wow guys, I loaded up Crysis 2 last night and played in 3D Vision with Direct X 11 and the HD high res pack and settting all maxed out and it runs butter smooth!!! I am loving it! A big increase over my 580s in SLI.

Yes it does look pretty cool. I was running it at 1920x1080 SLI 64xCSAA and 16xAA Supersampling and 16xAF. Was very smooth at 50-70 FPS. Not a jaggy in sight.

Wow nice mate!! do you have 3D Vision? it was one thing that I thought was a gimmick (main reason I went with the ASUS monitor I have is for 120hz but it came with 3D vision) anyways after playing games like Crysis 2 I love 3D vision now and am convinced its a must have thing if you are serious about your gaming and prepared to pay up for the Graphics cards and monitor which ain't cheap!!!

Man Crysis 2 is awesome, I was put off it at first because a heap of site like HardOCP rubbished it, but after the DX11 and HD patches were released and it came up on sale at www.mightyape.co.nz I went and bought it and man it should of been a day one purchase! I will def buy Crysis 3.
Pretty happy with my rig now, just have one more purchase to make. I want to pick up an Intel 520 480gb SSD. Just replaced the RAM in my PC today so back to 16gigs again (2 DIMMS failed on me) Just went and bought a 16gig Corsair Blue Vengeance pack, they look real nice in my ASUS P8P67 Deluxe, still have 2 x 4gb black Vengeance spare which I will store away for a 2nd PC build one day.

I had 3D Vision, but sold off the monitor. I do miss it and are waiting for the new 27" Asus with 3D Vision 2 Lightboost to arrive down here. Then I will get one and add it to my Monitor collection.

You will love the Intel 520 drives. I just recently bought 2 myself (one bought and one from an OCZ rma)

I'm afraid until there is an IPS that can do 120Hz, this is what we are stuck with. I love IPS screens, but I also love 120Hz and 3D. That is why I have the best of both worlds.

I have a 3d tv and I was using the Tridef drivers. Is 3d play software better?

So after a year of AMD, I am back to Nvidia. My card should be here monday. Ordered the EVGA vanilla model, had a 10% coupon from newegg and it worked nicely!!!

Now who wants my unlocked 6950, which is still a great video card for what its worth....

Good stuff, how did you go about securing one of those, it seems as soon as stock is available on New Egg they sell out within a minute or so!?!

searched for gtx 680 on newegg and enabled reloadevery on the results page, and put the page on my second monitor at work. I kept seeing every card that came and went, was waiting for the evga
