    Its like i said earlier i coulda cancelled my order and got 670's,before i bought this yesterday as Darren hodgson pointed out some facts about the 670but why would i want to do that when i can have a 690.

    Dont get me wrong the 670s are awesome performance for there price BUT there not 690's are they?You know what i mean,im happy with my purchase and will be buying another 690 sometime when i feel like it.

    Its expensive but it has exclusive ownership status which is what i also love about it.


    About the 301.34 drivers though they dont power the machine off properly when you have a 690 installed,it hangs so these drivers are ****,its a problem on other forums also,all i can say is they will continue to get better.:)

    You are my problem, you and everyone els crying about how unworthy the gtx 690 is because its expencive. If you cant buy then dont, enuff. Go play with your 470 card for another 5 years, you will "save a ton of money" gz.

    Dont use the 301.34...use this driver 301.33 works much better and you dont get that stupid pc hanging on shutdown.
    http://download.gigabyte.ru/driver/vga_driver_nvidia_(win7)vista64_301.33.exe

    Oh yeah Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the clubhouse:)

    301.34 is the only driver available for 690 isnt it? It's all I could find on geforce page.

    I installed my GTX 690 today after modding my fan duct on the CM nVidia HAF-X. I have had problems with this card already today. My screen when all red on me twice and wouldnt shut down. Also had the your computer is running slowly message from windows.

    I too hope the issue's are just driver related as it would kill me if I had a faulty card.

    Oh yeah, I had ASUS GPU Tweak installed due to having the ASUS card but removed it as I don't like it compared to MSI Afterburner... Maybe I had some issue's from that program?

    Dont use that driver,use the driver that i posted above the 301.33 it works great and it supports the 690.

    Just use 1 tweaking program,i too use afterburner,uninstall any others.

    Yeah I only had 1 program installed which was the ASUS program at the time. It's now gone and just MSI AB installed.

    I'll give those drivers a go. Have you had any issue's with 301.33?

    Happy days... Cheers buddy.

    Just a few quick questions.... Does this card have 4GB available for gaming or is it 2GB max and they just adverstise 4GB because of the 2 GPU's?
    Also. I set MSI AB to monitor my Memory and I'm sure it was reporting 3000mhz is that right?

    First time I have had a dual GPU PCB :D

    This card has a total of 4gb but each gpu uses a total of 2gb each,i think the memory clock is set at 3000mhz yes at stock,run some benchies at stock to get an idea.

    That's quite a burden, Veteran. I'll take that card off your hands as I'm accustomed to such harassment.

    :)
