GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition (aka as GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr III OC 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 Twin Frozr OC Edition features an increase to its core-clock, that went from 1006MHz to 1058MHz. The "Boost Clock" was also increased and can now attain some whooping 1124MHz.
The cooler TwinFrozr III has two 80 mm fans and five 8mm copper heat-pipes of nickel-plated, which according to MSI reduce the temperatures to up to 22ºC better and cause less noise than the standard design.
Though the changes are impressive, benchmarks indicate a 3% increase in performance when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 680.

Nope, buddy, I don't think so. You have a GFX with almost close to this one. If you wanna upgrade, wait for newer GPUs to come. But if you really wanna upgrade now, I'd suggest you go for HD 7970 Sapphire OC edition or something…..

It is enough, but i'd reccomend a 670 as it performs almost as well, even on pair when OC'd for a lot less money.. I see you have a 7870? Why the need to upgrade?

If you don't lose out on money when selling it then you can go for it. But if you have to sell it a lot cheaper to invest in 1-2 step better cards then it's not worth it…

Would my CPU be able to handle this video card, or would it bottleneck it?
Thanks.

It would handle it you could always OC your CPU which would minimize the little bottleneck there might be in some games.

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 95 FPS on Battlefield 3, 112+ FPS on Arkham City, The Witcher 2, and Max Payne 3, and even in the high 60s on Metro 2033 with everything cranked. I might get another and go QUAD next year when the prices drop. Right now they're over $650, and the performance boost I would see with SLI is worth that much money for me .
