The GTX 690 may be the fastest graphics card around but it is also completely unaffordable for anyone without very deep pockets or a nice trust fund. Yet for those that can afford it, the GTX 690 is the pinnacle of uncompromising graphics card design. It delivers unheard of performance and stretches

I set this card up with custom watercooling and have it overclocked with evga overclocking utility. It is still an expensive card, but if that is not an issue I definetly recommend it. Was easy to install and 6 months later still can run every game I have tried at max settings while running 2 2560x1440 monitors overclocked to 120hz. So happy with the purchase I am thinking of buying another for quad sli.
I bough two of these in january. Very powrfull setup. Runs every game you throw at it maxed out without any trouble. The only thing i don't realy like is the fact that under heavy load the fan became anoying and realy lound and it got to be turned on almost a full blast to keep the card under reasonable temperature. Event in a realy big case like the Cosmos 2 i currently own.
I went from 2 Asus ENGTX480s in SLI to this single GTX 690. Although I know it is just 2 680s stuck together in one card, it still outperforms two slower cards in SLI. I love the way it looks and fits. The drivers are great (as usual Nvidia drivers are superior to Catalyst) and I love this card. I will probably get another when Arma 3 and Crysis 3 come out so I can do Quad SLI.
This is the fastest single card you can get right now, even though its just two GTX 680s combined. I got this for my gaming rig so when crysis comes out I can buy another one of these and SLI it.
With the amount of power this thing has you expect max FPS without tweaking on maximum settings on any game, but across a wide selection of games and a variety of settings the frame rate varies heavily.
It's not a "bang for the buck" thing, but that being said you can just carry on and think of it as a permanent solution, as a long-time First person shooting game player, I believe this is the best thing that happened to my computer in my life!
