My God. you is superb.
yea even the 770 is less powerfull
when in doubt idk. just get the 4gb gtx 760 i maxed everything i had on it without any issues.
This video card GTX 680 handles pretty much everything you can throw at it. Quality is superb. In gaming, it is top-notch. It does run a little hot under a load during games. I did get this instead of the ATI 7950, because the two cards are not in the same class. I paid the extra money for the 680 to get the higher class video card. If you're looking to buy this card, then buy this version
how is it that the 760 burns the 680 on crisis 3? I don't get it.
760 is ALMOST better than the 680 for half the price. Having two 760's will be amazing :D. I can't wait to finish my rig :D.
It looks kind of funny seeing the 680 having a superior gaming, benchmark, and compute performance scores to the 760, and yet having an equal noise and power score (even though I know the specific TDPs and noise levels themselves are not equal, but, however, are rather close). If that really were true, that would make it seem like the 760 is a less efficient card than the 680, hmm? I would have expected that, given the 760 is clearly a less powerful card, it would at least have the upper hand by a larger margin in power draw and noise levels.
I think so, I think something is skewed on this site with its performance rating. The gtx 680 is by far a faster card. I mean, the 680 is faster then that 660ti, and the 660ti is faster than the 760, but for some reason it is saying the 760 is better at Crisis 3? I think something is wrong with this. I had a 680 signature 2 and it was an amazing card. Would trade my 760 in my current rig for one again any day
No. If you are going to upgrade then the gtx 770is a better card at a lower cost. Of course you could just sli another gtx 760 and not have to worry for,a few years.
Im thinking of upgrading from a gtx 760 to a 680 for 5760x1080. worth it?
I'll stick to gtx 760,
