What should I get? Another 560 Ti or EVGA's 680 FTW?

Q: What should I get? Another 560 Ti or EVGA's 680 FTW?


I recently bought a new custom pc, but kept old 560 Ti in it.
So System what I have now:
850w PSU Corsair;
16gb Kingston Ram 1600Mhz;
3770k i7 Intel Cpu @ 4.7Ghz
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H;
Gigabyte 560 Ti Video card;

There is 2.2 Cm distance between Cards. I would get a 560 Ti in no time if I wouldnt be worried about the heat.

I want to buy a new video card or add another 560 Ti. But Selling my current 560 Ti would be hard here.
I could get a new 560 Ti for 300$ (Hate prices in Latvia(East Europe))
or Gigabyte's Gtx 680 2gb For 740$(Price here)
or Gigabyte's Gtx 670 2gb for 570$(Price Here)
I have a chance getting Evga's 680 FTW 4gb from US but its gonna be only on october 630$ (Price in the US)

Question is, What would you do if you were me?

EDIT: I am using old Monitor - 1440 x 900 Resoulution, Going to buy 1920 x 1080 Soon

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: What should I get? Another 560 Ti or EVGA's 680 FTW?

My opinion based on the fact that you aren't yet capable of gaming at 1080p resolutions is stick with your 560 till October and then get a much cheaper 670 from the US (instead of the FTW). For $630 you're inching pretty close to a pair of 670s @ $800. The rest of your machine would NOT be a bottleneck to a pair of 670s but I'd be willing to bet you would be happy with just 1 of them.

after many trial and errors with the fans.. i finally figured out why my PC is still so loud.. well the NB chipset cooler on this motherboard (eVGA NF43) is very loud for a little tiny fan. so i decided to replace it with passive cooling.. such as the Zalman ZM-NB47J

Question is.. i have a 6600GT right by the chipset cooler.. will the zalman fit in there? i kno it wont with the 7800GTs but im not sure how much longer ther PCB's are on those cards.. maybe someone can help me =]

A:eVGA 6600GT + eVGA NF43 + Zalman ZM-NB47J = happy? or not?

After looking at my 6600gt, the picture of the motherboad, and the picture of the cooler, I don't think it will work. You use the blue pci-e slot right?
I guess there are several options. If your chipset stays plenty cool you could try slowing the fan either using a software program, or by using a manual fan speed controller. Or I've seen people with the same heatsink and a similar board layout cut some of the spokes(or bend them), so that it wouldn't interfere with the card. There also might be replacments with a fan that is quieter available.

I am running windows Home Premium 64bit. I just did a fresh install and when I ran the WEI the computer rebooted. I can run it with out being in SLI mode, but as soon as I enable and refresh the computer reboots. I am wondering if it is caused by the power supply. I have a rosewill RP650 2 psu. - Rosewill RP650-2 650W ATX12V v2.3 & EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply

What are your thoughts?? I have the latest drivers and again this is a new OS install.

A:Evga GTX 260 SLI with Evga x58 mother board reboot issues

Hi and welcome to seven forums

How recent is the SLI? Have you just added the 2nd card?

Could you tell us the rest of your system specs or fill them in on your profile.

Do both cards work fine if you just have 1 installed?

Sounds like it could be a power issue if so.

I noticed on that all eVGA products were renamed to EVGA. I found this strange and I prefer the eVGA name over the EVGA name. But I was wondering if the name is eVGA or EVGA. I guess it really doesn't matter, but I kind of care.

Anyway because of neweggs change in names I thoughh the correct name is EVGA. Yet in my eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB (and thats how I believe it should be named. Sorry cfitzarl) manual it is called eVGA.

Anyway, you known the question.

A:Is it eVGA or EVGA

If you head over to, then you see that it is EVGA all over the place. Maybe they decided to change the spelling at some point?

I recently bought a new graphic card, replacing my old Nvidia GeForce 9500GT 1GB a month ago, the games that I run is fine, plays in max quality with no lag at all. After a month, I'm getting problems now with my graphic card. My games are running awfully slow, older games running slow. What's happening? Also, I am not sure what Power Supply brand I am running but all I know is that the wattage of the Power Supply is about 450 Watts.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.00GHz
GTS 450 SC 1GB
Windows 7 64bit Ultimate Edition


Open up the case and there will be a label on the side of the power supply, tell us what the make and model of it.

Hey guys,

So I tried tracking down a EVGA GTX 670 FTW 4gb to SLI it with my current one, but I couldn't find anything online anymore. Could I pair it up with a another GTX 600 series 4gb or a EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2gb (when I have a 4)?

I want to SLI (now or some short time in the future) but I don't know what to do about my existing GTX 670 problem. I don't really know much about the compatibility of SLI so I was wondering if there was any insight on here.


A:EVGA GTX 670 FTW edition SLI

You can only pair a GTX 670 with a GTX 670 (Same with pairing a GTX 660 and a GTX 660).

But don't worry if you have an EVGA GTX 670 and ASUS GTX 670 for example, it's still fine.

With regards to your problem, did you disable the integrated card? You said that you set the PCI-e to the primary but i don't know if this is the same thing or not.

To disable the integrated graphics in Windows: Right click on your My Computer icon, click Properties. Open the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. Expand the Display Adapters section and double click the built in graphics. On the drop down menu at the bottom, change it to Disable and make sure that the PCI-e graphics is set to Enable.

Which one would you get? I'm soon going to get one, and I'm not sure which to buy...

I've used EVGA cards and am currently using one, and customer service is great, and I love EVGA precision.

However, the Gigabyte has three fans and is already overclocked (I'll still overclock it :P). Also, will EVGA Precision work with the Gigabyte card?

I was looking at video cards for my next upgrade and my eye caught this card. it is the same price as the 7900GS, but it is called the 7900 GT KO. i was wondering if this was just an overclocked version of the GS, or a real 7900GT gpu. Also will this card be enough to last me for a while or even just to play the current top games? (Flight sim X, BF2, BF2142, FEAR, CS:S, and so on...)

Well I cant really tell the Airflow of my GPU cooler either (ATi x1950xt) but I know that ATi's catalyst can tell me the temps, and they are about 45 idle and can go WAY up in game. FOr nVidia cards I would recomend downloading NvTempLogger which will log your nVidia based temps (more info at the link). I cant tell you what temps you want to have but this thing will let you know what you do have and then you can easily check nVidia's site for what is acceptable (or a quick google search).

If you can do this your card will be Pretty close to a Geforce 6800 GT....
All the Geforce 6800 cards are based on the NV40 technology... The only prob is that ultra and GT have 16 pixel pipelines compared to 6800's (vanialla) 12 pixel pipeline...

if you can unlock the other 4 you may see some improvements ...

Andrew, welcome to the forum. You should measure the space between the Back I/O plate and the front of the computer.  This will allow you to see how much length the card can have and check to see if any components are in the way.  Also, I suggest that you contact EVGA Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) to assure that the card will work in the computer.  It requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  I don't believe that your motherboard has UEFI. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Why don't you wait a month or 2 and buy a 7800GT or GTX. with the new 7900 series out now, retailers are dumping the 7800 series at reasonable prices. I've been watching them come down in price in just the last few weeks. The diff between 1.6 and 1.5 GHz is ntohing and you won't notice it or you can just adjust this in the nVidia settings.

A:Evga 6600 256 PCI-E

It should definatly do the trick, I think it would do the job even on full graphics for those games. Of course it would depend on things like your chipset, and amount of ram u have. I run something compareable, radeon 9600 pro 256 mb, AMD 64 3200+ 2.2 ghz, 1 gig of ram with an Nforce3. It can run these games perfect.

If your worried about playing full performance, just buy a bit of an older game first, to make sure it runs well. Like Bf1942, call of duty ect..

If they run to your standards go ahead and get doom3, farcry, or halflife2.

Turned it off, started windows in vga mode, was going to reinstall the drivers to the onboard video and then i realized that my pc had installed the nvidia one because it was being recognized in hardware manager with no problems. I have no idea what im doing wrong, perhaps i missed something. I uninstalled the 9400 and im back on the onboard ati with no problems but I'm back at the begining no installed graphics card.

When I go into the bios, it is not recognizing the HD at all. I think it's recognizing the cd, but when I click on the device it says disabled. What am I doing wrong????

Those adapters are junk. Using a SATA hard drive would be the much wiser choice and the performance of a new SATA drive will be significantly higher over an older PATA drive as well.

Once ive chosen the motherboard another problem im going to have is the DDR3 ram. I havent got a clue which goes best with what. Any help would be appreciated!


Heard a lot more complains on the striker then on the EVGA. So...

WIN 7 includes ACHI, but you might consider using IDE, especially if you plan to upgrade to a SSD in the future. Some SSDs have issues with ACHI and work best with the plain-Jane MS IDE drivers.

My Gtx crapped out so I called EVGA to get eVGA over Fuming a replacement After tests a stool sample and a promise to give up my first born child they agreed to replace my card I shipped my card off to them and about days later I get an email telling me that they will not replace the card because when they looked at my card it had a tiny Fuming over eVGA i mean tiny chip at the very edge of the card They said that this damage is Fuming over eVGA a total loss to the card and they will not replace it The chip touches nothing not the circuitry at all and is so smal that you can barely see it My wife unfortunately did not ensure the shipping of my card so Im out of luck EVGA knew the card was bad IE the RMA they gave me before i shipped it off Anyone else have the crappy customer support from them or am I one of the goats running out to slaughter nbsp

When I RMA'd my video card EVGA responded very quickly. They gave me an RMA number just a few hours after I requested an RMA, and I got my new card just under two weeks after I shipped it to them. My card did not have any damage like a chip out of the edge though.

Hi, I am planing to build a custom budget gamning PC.
Is this GPU( gtx 650 2 gb) or this ( gtx 650 2 gb) really worth it and does it fits to this:

AMD Athlon X4 760K-CPU
Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz 4 or 8 GB-RAM

NZXT Source 210-CASE
WD Caviar Blue 500 GB-HDD
Sorry for my english.
Thanks in advance.

A:Is EVGA GTX 650 2 GB worth it?

Do you have a budget for how much you can spend on the Video Card itself? I would suggest shopping around because Amazon doesn't always have the best deals. Depending on where you are located, you could find some really sweet deals. Spending another $10 you can get an EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB ( ) or for the same price as GTX 650 you can get a PNY GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB ( ). I'm not saying you have to buy either of those cards, just showing you that you have options. You could also go with an AMD video card if you wanted to. Let us know how much you can spend (on either just the Video Card or the whole system) and we can help you out.
Also, looking at the specs you included, it looks like you have a decent plan for the build. I would suggest getting 8GB of Ram, not just 4GB. If you want to game on it, then 8GB is pretty much the "safe zone" for gaming.

So was just eVGA speed RAM 750i on looking around at prices for my new build I'm getting next month and was looking at scan co uk and it said for memory the only speeds it supported was and I went to look on the eVGA website and it said all DDR RAM was support so I thought fair enough The RAM I'm using right now is Corsair XMS My question being is RAM in dual channel going to put up alright on the i motherboard From reading other forums it says that DDR in dual channel has the same bandwidth as in single channel so saying this I'd say RAM speed on eVGA 750i it would be okay I know would be better for me but I won't be doing that upgrade for another few months yet as I'd have thought the RAM I have now is enough Edit - Another question I've never used Intel CPUs before but how much effort would it take to get the RAM from to when overclocking the CPU

A:RAM speed on eVGA 750i

RAM speed and memory bandwidth are two different things. DDR2 667 describes its speed: 667MHz DDR. It's bandwidth is 5.4GB/s. They use the memory's bandwidth as a second name, which in your case is PC-5400. You can use the names interchangeably.

However, DDR2 667, aka PC-5400 does not have the same bandwidth as DDR3 1333, aka PC-10660, which has a speed of 1333MHz DDR and a bandwidth of 10.6GB/s. No amount of overclocking is going to get DDR2 667 anywhere near the bandwidth of DDR3 1333 or DDR2 1066. Even getting close to DDR2 800 would be a phenomenal feat.

Having said all that, memory bandwidth doesn't mean squat anymore. Sure, ideally you'd like to be running at least 800MHz RAM, but after that, from 800MHz to 1100MHz DDR2, the gains aren't dramatic... they're there, they're just not dramatic enough to make a meaningful difference.

As for your board specifically, I don't know if you're going to have a problem as you RAM's speed isn't even supported? In theory it should work just fine; in practice, I'm not sure? It might work, but with RAM so cheap, you may as well bite the bullet and get at least DDR2 800?

I have the HP Pavilion 550-153w  and I want to put in EVGA GeForce GTX 950 FTW GAMING ACX 2.0. Will my system handle it?


The question would be why? What do you want for it?  A particular game? Of concern is the i3-4170 processor.  If it's a game, go to game-debate and do the "Can I play It".The GTX 950  peaks at 90W. Your system would require a minimum of 350W. I would recommend a Corsair CX 500, provided that your processor is sufficient (which I really doubt).

A:Evga Waranty Problems

Hi Ritespeed,

I am sorry to hear of your delima with your warranty. It sounds like something that would happen to me

Unfortunately companies set a warranty period to support their hardware for the length of time they feel is suitable for their product. It would be nice to have lifetime warranty on a video card but I'm affraid the company would probably go out of business using that type of practice.

Are you positive the card is not operatable? Replacing it in another computer, checking in the Device Manager for conflicts, updating drivers can all be good
types of troubleshooting.

If you are positive it is "dead" then I am sorry, we would not be able to assist you.

Also, is it only human to give your opinion about a product while upset with their Customer Services practices, but the suggestion not to purchase this brand of video card is strickly ones opinion.

We would be happy to assist you with troubleshooting your video card .

Hello there. I googled that motherboard and I have found this website

It seams as though you just need a standard ATX psu with;

1x 24 Pin Motherboard Plug
1x 4 Pin Motherboard Plug

Both of these plugs are supplied with almost any PSU that you can buy now. Here is a good quality cheep PSU of coarse you can go cheaper but usually you will loose quality and reliability.

As for CPU's this board is a socket 939. It says that it accepts AMD Athlon 64 cpus. That is all I could find about the CPU's on EVGA's limited help section. I presume that something like this would be ok with it.

It goes to 100% and restarts, then when it gets to "Completing installation" it will go to a black screen and quit.

What's up with that?

Tried 2 DVD's now.

A:Can't install on new EVGA 680i MB

Only the mouse cursor on the black screen?

If the installation goes like that, to my 'old' experience, you may try to go the
Safe Mode, and install the Nvidia Forceware Driver and problem will be fixed.

I currently have a single EVGA 2GB GTX 770 SC and a 650W Cooler Master PSU. I'm getting a second 770 and I'm not sure if 850 watts will be enough to power two of them. I'm currently interested in this PC Power & Cooling power supply as it is on sale for $100 after rebate for Black Friday. I have also heard that this brand is very reliable and high quality.

A:850W PSU enough for SLI EVGA SC GTX 770s?

I bought my new computer about 1 and a half years ago. This "problem" has been going on from when I bought it... I find my GTX 680 to lag at points that it should not lag at. For example at the moment I am playing Dead Space 1 and whenever I shoot the monsters with a flamethrower, the game lags. When those exploding monsters come and I shoot them, it lags. It used to do this in some other games too but I forgot which. I also play World of Tanks, no lag at all. Am I exaggerating, might it be the game, badly optimized? Dead Space was not downloaded illegally, it was bought from the Humble Bundle Thanks...

Hi Guys, not sure if there has been a thread about this already, but couldnt find one.

I would love to upgrade to a triple display setup, and know there can be complications with an SLI or CrossFire setup, so was gonna try a single card set up.

I am looking at GTX 680 but not sure whether to go for a 2GB model of the 4GB.

Has any one got a 2GB 680 and running Nvidia Surround? If so how does it run?

Thanks in advance

I know quite a few people are looking for a new video card, and the EVGA Superclocked GTX 660Ti 3GB card is an absolute beast. I normally don't post anything like this, but I feel this card for less than $300 is a steal. If it doesn't belong here, or if it is against forum rules, I apologize, and feel free to "moderate" it.

Here it is: - EVGA SuperClocked+ 03G-P4-3663-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

If you figure in the 15% off and the $20 MIR, that comes to about $268.99. Definitely the cheapest this card has ever been!

Yeah, saw that today when I was visiting the site to make some comments and revisit the OC thread.

I have my system OC'd back to the 3.375 GHz I have in my signature, and all seems well, but it won't hold up to Prim95 x64 stress testing...

Anyhoo, I just missed my step up period, so I'll be sticking with my 260s at 192 with 65nm architecture....

I've come across something odd while benchmarking my 560ti prior to trying a bit of overclocking.

While using FurMark 1.9.2 for testing, with EVGA's Precision X open for monitoring, the GPU clock bounces between 450 and 900 MHz (with 900 MHz being the default clock on this card). This is very evident on the "furry doughnut" as it moves faster and slower in a rhythmic fashion.

I noted the FurMark score, closed Precision X and tried again. Got approximately the same score, so I shut down the machine and rebooted. Ran FurMark again without ever starting Precision X but still got the same results.

This GPU clock "oscillation" doesn't occur when I run other tools such as OCCT or Unigine.

Is this normal? Is something amiss or do I have something set wrong?

If you use cpu-z, [email protected] gpu frequencies, you have 3 points, desktop, 2d, and 3d. Sounds like you're fluctuating between 2d and 3d. Does the same problem present with afterburner?

I have been looking at getting a new graphics card and was originally looking at the eVGA 7600GT CO and KO. By the way, what is the difference between CO and KO, and which is better?

Then I found out that the eVGA was having some overheating issues so I began looking at some VGA coolers for about $25.

From there I was thinking if I went to another brand such as XFX or PNY, that the overheating may not happen.

Would you guys suggest getting an eVGA with a 3rd party heatsink (or have you guys had great success with the stock cooler?) or should I get an XFX or PNY 7600gt?

I am assuming that the XFX and PNY don't have as bad of overheating problems from the customer reviews. Which brand is best, eVGA, XFX, or PNY?

What is you guys advice to this dilemma? What would you do? Other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks guys.

Are you sure that it's the video card? Have you run any diagnostics/stress tests? Try vidmemtest (google it) to check your video card's memory: it's could be some dodgy memory on the card.

I'm having problems of my own, but just now I had a crash with the screen you've just described (previously it was BSOD's and freezes).. I'm hoping it's not my HD4850...

Because your motherboard only supports Crossfire (dual or up ATi cards), not SLI(dual or up nVidia cards)
Dump the SLI idea, get a single good card or two Radeon 4850s.

MSI 925x Neo Platinum MB. I tried everything but alas the same result.
Then MSI informd me that the guarantee 2years starts from the day it leaves the factory and not from when you purchase their merchandise. So needless to say I WONT be purchasing anything else from them. So take note !!
So guys I have purchased the above MB in its place and wondered if anyone out there had any experience of it. I'm not an avid gamer but wanted someting I could use from my knackered board eg PCU RAM etc to save on costs that would (hopefully) fit this MB.

Hey guys, weird one for you.

I have an eVGA 6800GT. I noticed that my WoW game would freeze up for a little while after the framerate dropped. It looked like the video card was overheating, but I have a PCI cooler and 5 other fans in the case, so I thought that was quite unlikely. None the less, I downloaded nView and checked the GPU temp under Aquamark. The idle temp was 80 degrees C, with the temp spiking to 99 degrees C when the benchmark was running hard. This seems VERY hot to me. I'm going to add another fan on the side of the case to blow on the card, and the card fan is running, I checked that. Any other ideas?
