The moment amazon gets the 680, I'm copping. Based on my rig, do I have a bottleneck for this gpu? I was going to wait for the 7990 but its a dual gpu so ill pass.

Edit-in second thought, amazon retailers a re hiking the price up to 675. I think ima new egg it and pick up @ wherehouse. But first^

Nah no bottlenecks at all. Only thing I'd like to know is how fast is your RAM?

Why you and Russ scared of the dual GPUs? I can honestly day I haven't had any problems with the games that I've ran. Actually the only game I had a problem with was Saints Row 3 but that turned out to just be a motherboard BIOS problem.

Dual-GPU = Microstutter, I know for a fact whether you believe me or not, its a huge issue with CFX... Despite me running BF3 max settings around 75-80fps, it felt more like 40fps... Im looking forward to having lower framerates, but a smoother experience... I think im gonna stay nvidia forever now, AMD is cool but, nah... And come on man, so many games came out that took ati 2-3 weeks to get a profile for so the game worked properly with multigpu setups... Skyrim TO THIS DAY STILL has glitches with CFX... fu*k that

yo this is taking so long man... I ended up cancelling my order with tiger direct cuz I managed to snag one off newegg, but fu*k the shipping is taking forever... It took them 2-3 days just to get to Seattle from Cali, then im a.ssuming it has to go up to Vancouver, Canada, then allllllll the way to Toronto... I want it already!!!

I did some spring cleaning with my case and sh*t, I took out one of my 120mm fans that was causing like 90% of all the noise inside my case, sh*t is silent now, wiring is fixed up and ready to go, all I gotta do is pop in the 680 and im good... Hopefully the backplate and the bracket come in soon, gotta find me a t6 torx screwdriver in the mean time... I'll post some pics when I get everything, hopefully by mid-week...

I can honestly say I havn't had any microstutter issues on any games in my SLI set up.....Was this just an issue you had with AMD cards?

Yeah it's a big issue with AMD cards, drivers are sh*t for CFX...

My 680 backplate and bracket came in today, the card should be in tomorrow... Can't wait
