GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 680. See the standard version for more information about it.
Compared to the standard version, GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Edition features increased core and memory clocks, from 1006MHz to 1058MHz and from 6008MHz to 6208MHz, respectively, which will undoubtedly give a performance boost, increasing the Textel/Pixel Fill Rate but also increasing the Memory Bandwidth. The "Boost Clock" was also increased and can now attain some whooping 1124MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% boost in performance when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 680.
A GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Plus Edition will also be released with increased cooling to raise even more the "Boost Clock".

Go for the Galaxy Edition. Not because of the doubled frame buffer, but because of the higher clocked Central unit, which will give net you better FPS than the increase Bandwidth due to the OC'd memory on this one would ;D

Hello! i have a little question! I am gonna upgrade my current GFX (GTX 560 TI). I do have 2 PCI slots, Should i use both (if that's even possible), or replace the 560? And do i have to worry more about temperatures when i use both?

It's not possible to use two different GPUs together so you will just have to replace the 560.

I am the proud owner of this card, and let me say it just smokes anything I throw at it. Without V-sync on to steady the frame rate, I get 80 FPS on Battlefield 3, 70+ FPS on Arkham City, The Witcher 2, and Max Payne 3, and even in the high 40s on Metro 2033 with everything cranked. I might get another and go SLI next year when the prices drop. Right now they're over $600, and the performance boost I would see with SLI isn't worth that much money.

All AMD's GPUs get better FPS with Metro 2033 than the average NVIDIA. It's better driver support.

Pip: I returned the laptop for a refund and ended up building a custom system. Ultimately, for the money, the custom built desktop was a much better investment for longevity's sake. The 675M was a very slick mobile GPU, but the GTX 680 just rips it apart. I didn't want to be without a laptop, so I got a simple i3-based Asus 14" which is MUCH easier to transport around. Plus, it's good enough to play some of my favorite old (read: very low system requirements) Steam games like Soldiers: Heroes of WWII, Half-Life, Morrowind, and Max Payne 1. So, I can still play some great games while I'm out of the house, and I have a total fire-breathing desktop at home that eases through the modern, high-end games.

Actually it seems that going sli for GTX 680 gives a huge boost in terms of performance:

You got the same setup as me, I'm planning to do the same as you and go dual GTX 680 down the line once my current setup won't harvest me smooth gameplay anymore.
