Hi guys, i want to see how many people satisfied with their nvidia top dogs. for me i bought it on April 10 2012 and never looked back. had couple of driver issue that got solved ez, some problem regarding games are not solved(aka BL2 bad physx issue, but that work in progress at gearbox...), but that developers issue.

Overall 9.8/10 satisfaction, what's yours?

I would say hell yes and its my first high end nvidia card after 7100 GS lol.

my last card was AMD 5850 1 GB it was also very good i had it for 3 years never had any problem.

But after i got the 670 gtx i felt the new power which surpassed any card i had before.

I am very happy i choose 670 gtx over 7950/70 not cause of fanboy but i felt like i needed a green card after a long time and i am loving it everyday i game with ultra settings at 1080p its just beautiful.

was upgrading from a 580 to 7970 cause i felt first, hell it would be great to get the 5870 experience again but actually my 7970 was so bugged i couldn't even display 120Hz without OC my 2D Clocks i RMAed my card but they sent it straight back, no artifacts found, so i sold it and got a GTX 680 instead. The card is great but i think it lacks the memory bandwith, i actually felt that my 580 was stronger when applying Supersampling but i don't use it anymore that often cause forcing it in some games, namely Unreal Engine 3 kills FPS.

The 670 and 680's are great cards and will run pretty much anything you throw at them with good frame rates especially if you sli them, they dont lose any of there power because newer cards are now available.

Absolutely love it, 9.5... would have been a 10 if nVidia didn't go all pansy with the voltage control.

For gaming it's brilliant, smooth and stutter free emersion !

Love the cards, far cooler than my gtx 470's, but should have rather gone with the 4GB versions. The problem is the 4GB version is very difficult to get in South Africa. Still think the drivers are not utilising the cards correctly though in SLI. but so many games are console ports, so not even sure if all this power is needed.

happy but apparantly 1280 isnt stable anymore due to the warmer weather.
I switched the cards around friday and they were a little loose on the screws, Ill see it 1280 is still good lol

Think there needs to be an option between "HELL Yes" and "Kinda...". I'd be somewhere in there.

i think the main problem of 680 and 670, mainly 680 is price. for 256 bit and high memory frequency it does super well, for some reason my eyes go for Titan LE but we see.

For performance to power consumption ratio, I'm happy with my solo 670 for 1080p gaming.
For stability and consistency across many games this card is nice.
But for voltage capping, power throttling and boost, this card sucks for oc performace or should I say lack of it.
After owning the 670 I honestly wish I'd wasted my money on equal priced 7970.

My original 670 with the bios mod was stable at 1333/7300 that's a more than a 30% overclock from reference mine in sli are stable at 1267~8/7200 still more than 25% overclock. not sure if this post is serious.

some cards are crap clockers and some people dont bios flash to unlock the extra voltage. some people dont overclock the vrams too, a 670/680 with at least a 7ghz rams is an excellent performer. 6ghz is kind of a bottleneck with a 256bit bus

Could have been better.

edit: Let me explain...While GK104 is an efficiency marvel compared to AMD's high end. I would have much MUCH rather had a larger die 250 watt monster.

I must say that for what Kepler actually is, the performance is astounding really. If you compare the die size of GK104 to Tahiti, it's like half the size almost. That's why these cards sip so little power considering the clocks.

Very much satisfied with my cards (purchased on release day in 2012). Everything I throw at them can get at least a steady 60 frames, although some games do stress them a little more and I see dips into the 40's and 50's (Crysis 2 with MaLDoHD Texture mod for instance). But overall I wouldn't trade these cards unless I really needed to. A few driver issues, but performance wise they're easily a 9/10 (due to drivers).
