    My new video card, GTX 670!

    Well, today I have bought GTX 670 and I wanted to get GTX 680 but the guy told me its not worth it to pay 100 dollars extra as I just play games on max and no overclock. Here is a video and let me know what do you guys think about it. http://youtu.be/CRY7mRXOnRI
    So, far I like it and played few games on max from the game main not the GPU. The GPU settings I have left it on default and didn't push anything to max. My old video card was Asus GTX 560 1GB and this one has 2GB.

    Nice buy!! I have a GTX 660M in my laptop (2GB vram). My desktop was upgraded a lot earlier this year from an 8800GT to a 460GTX. I'll most likely be upgrading that one in Feb.

    Thank you. I wanted to get GTX 680 but for me as the guy said, its no use. You have a very good laptop since it has GTX660M. I have never seen much laptops has this video card.

    Yea I got mine two or so months back. Got the FTW Edition. It's a great card man, I upgraded from the 570 and there's a definite noise and power consumption difference. Naturally the performance is awesome!

    Looove Nvidia.

    You are right. Mine was GTX 560 and sometimes it used to make heavy noise. But GTX 670 is very quiet no noise at all. Plus the 2 fan thier blades are so thin and they looked nice. I personally, like it and its worth 429.

    I find noise of a card depends on the manufacturer, they often use different fan layouts and BIOS settings for example the fan on my XFX 6870 is $#@!e and runs about 40% at idle to keep it below 45C.

    lucky. I got the 550m. They didn't have the 660m yet.

    Glad to hear 670 is good. Been looking at a few setups with it.

    Thank you. Yeah, I was like you. At first, I have decided to GTX 680 but Iam no expert in PC. The guy told me that is waste of money plus its over clocked. The GTX 680 1201 is only when over clocked and I told him I just play games on max no over clokc thing and he said save the 100 dollars. GTX 670 is eating all the games lol. Iam so happy with it and I like it.

    Looks like a wise choise.
    The 660ti is gimped due to the bus only being 192bits unliek the 670 which is 256bits.
    So if you like Anti Aliasing the 670 is clearly better card the higher you go even when the 660 has more VRAM infact the 3GB version does worse than the 2GB.

    I don't no much about the anti aliasing and i always keep the default settings. Do you recommend it?
