GTX 680 with Core i7-2700K benchmarks at Ultra Quality quality settings

At 1440p, GTX 680 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. With current 2048 MB RAM, the GTX 680 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. This combination between GTX 680 and Intel Core i7-2700K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX 680 and Intel Core i7-2700K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss. With current 2048 MB RAM, the GTX 680 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. View Current Price List
