    well, when a game doesnt MAX out with my system, i feel cheap.

    i want to change my GPU which is easier than changing CPu for me.

    What if i change my 480 with 680 ? FAR CRY 3 may run better i guess hu?

    Of course it will. In most cases you will get a 40-60% improvement...

    You've been here for how long? and you're asking a question like this?

    Am I missing something here? :3eyes:

    You shouldn't upgrade to GTX 680, GTX 670 performs within 10% and costs $100 less. Some 670's are factory overclocked to GTx 680 speeds, e.g. EVGA 670 FTW. Both cards run the risk of being bottlenecked by your CPU if you don't overclock it. With proper cooling and a good motherboard, the i7 950 can OC to 4GHz.

    The evga ftw is clocked the same as a 680 so it is slightly slower due to less shaders 1344 vs 1536

    Looking at the post count of the OP, one must be thinking that this is a troll post. Nevermind though I guess.. :D

    Biggie - the 680 isn't compatible with a 360 controller.



    I kid, I kid. :)

    Enjoy your new card, brudda.
