also the gtx 680 asus is a MASSIVE triple slot cooler, it will put a lot of weight on to your motherboard, unless you get a bracket.

If you're even considering a 680, then don't bother, go with the 770 instead. The pricing is similar but the 770 outperforms the 680.

What kind of overclocks are you guys/girls getting with this card? What software are you using to achieve it? Is MSI Afterburner on top for overclocking nivida cards or is it EVGA's precision X got the goods. And what is Asus's own Tweak software like?

I use MSI Afterburner for AMD cards seems to be the best HIS AMD cards tend to be more stable under there own OC software. But i want to know about the nvidia cards.
