I have to admit I was surprised when Bosco said he had one of the two for one simple reason: no SLI in the review?
Bosco, if they want a picture, give them a picture. Take a different card, say a 520 or any AMD/ATi card, cover up the logos with duct tape, and write "GTX 680: AWWW YEAH EDITION" on it in green marker.

Processor: AMD A10-5800K @4.40 GHz (44.0x100)
Cooling: Corsair H110
Motherboard: ASUS F2A85-M PRO
GPU: EVGA GTX 770 2 GB
PhysX: EVGA GTX 570 1280 MB
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 4x8 GB (32 GB total) at 1866 MHz 10-10-10-27
PSU: OCZ Fata1ty 750 W

All we need to do is look at what history has shown us:

1. AMD always releases the next gen fastest single GPU card first!
2. NVIDIA releases their next gen line a few months later.
3. AMD no longer has the fastest single GPU card out :lol:

Maybe we don't have any history buffs out there? :pfp: :rofl:

- Written by an AMD fan.
- Forward to be written after the Kepler release, when the 7970 is the 2nd fastest single GPU on the market of course, by Nyt :whistling:

Add 4. AMD's fastest single GPU card has always been cheaper than Nvidia's fastest single GPU card

I have no doubt the GTX680 will be the fastest single GPU on the market, else Kepler would be a fail lol. But when it comes to oc'ing , thats what Im more interested in as I doubt that the GTX680 is going to match the HD7970 on the overclocking front...

Dude you're getting three 680s because two of them cant compare to my overclocked 7970 CF :lol:
Stop talking about beating me, try beating me with two 680s ... You seem so confident of Kepler so use just two 680s to compare apples to apples and not apples to watermelons lol
Once Kepler arrives, there will be a duel of epic proportion - HD7970 CF Overclocked vs GTX680 SLI Overclocked ... A fight for respect ... Which I will win :bow:

Ah, that's giving me a 404. You sure you want to go with that as your defense; a 404 error?
