I might get another later on, I guess it all depends on how Metro Last Light runs...I want to run that game as close to max settings as I can.

It's reference to the Kiwi Fruit found in New Zealand. Like the fruit New Zealanders are furry and sweet.

OMG I could go for one right now.

You could go for what- a furry and sweet new zealander or a kiwi?

If Kiwi I agree, sounds delicious right about now.

For sure man!!!! Hows your GTX680s going? I just received an email to say they have been dispatched, will most likely have them Wed now . Sold 1 of my GTX580s to a mate and probably sold the other one to a work buddy, so the cost is as bad

Been real busy lately, but I signed up to be notified when Newegg gets some 680's in stock. That was almost three weeks ago.

A few days later, I received a notification email and within 30 minutes, they had sold out again.

I know this has to be bumming a lot of folks out since the 680 is a fantastic high-end card.


On a related note, a headline was posted about a price drop AMD announced for their 7970 and 7950.

I just got my first PNY GTX 680 a few days ago, I'm really excited about the performance boost over my old SLI GTX 560 Ti w/ GTS 450 for PhysX set up. I already sold one of the GTX 560's and the GTS 450. I will keep the remaining GTX 560Ti for PhysX. I plan to get a second GTX 680 when they are in stock.

They are going awesome. So very quiet and fast. I'm very happy with them.

I haven't gotten around to selling my 580's yet. They are all boxed up and ready to go though.
