In I walked into my local Memory Express in Edmonton on Sunday. I remember asking the nice sales person if they had a GTX680, fool well knowing what the answer would be. Well, when he said yes, and MSI one and the last in stock, my mind went blank.
Next thing I know, he says "Have a good day sir!" and I look down, and I am holding a receipt in my left hand and my new MSI GTX680 in my right!
Then, came the three hour drive back to Cold Lake, where I live.
Yesterday, I had some trouble installing the card, in that it is much longer than my HD 5770 and I had to move my hard drive to an upper bay to accomodate the card.
I seemed to have borked the monitor in the process as there were green and pink lines on it, but determined it wasn't the card by connecting a second monitor to test it out. By reversing the DVI cable, the monitor is now working again. Not sure what happened to cause the lines?
Will post benchies when I can
