In preparation for Planetside 2, I'm looking to swap out my GTX295.
The reason being that the 295 is mostly on par with 680 except for a much better Textel rate and a small loss in memory bandwidth. (Yup...) I would be content to stick with the 295 for a bit more, except that this is the second one I've had (which was a feat in itself since they're kind of hard to come by). The first one fried for some unknown reason after about a year, and I thought at first it was the solders coming loose from overheating, but I've been monitoring this one very closely and it never gets over 80*. But I'll occasionally get visual oddities and rare hardlocks that are related to resolution changes when switching from games to windows. I'm not quite ready to drop a grand on a 690, so I figured I'd see how the 680's are as far as reliability and such.
