    Hello
    Thinking about getting one of these nice 690GTX. Are there any 690 owners who would like to share their impressions of the card so far?

    Only just put it in however it's very quiet even under load and temps are staying below 80c with stock settings.

    Getting some stutter however I think it's because it's not in a full speed slot (due to motherboard bios problems with the raid card)

    Soon I will try BF3 but origin is refusing to connect at the moment

    Had to remove the megaraid card to get 16x speed. The stutter has gone and the 3dmark score stock is higher in the 16x slot than it was in the 8x slot with an overclock.

    FPS reading shows lower than the 3x 7970s in most things but it seems so much smoother

    very pleased so far
