Right now im looking at msi's gtx 680 PE, which is apparently a lightning, but it doesnt have a dual bios, and a sticker over "lightning" on the backplate. Is there a better 680 out there? I dont want any triple slot, unless its necessary.
Im pretty sure the ASUS version is pretty good, I would buy the MSI version just because it looks very, very nice.
EVGA 680 classified is a beast, i have one myself
Lightnings are nice and anything from EVGA is usually high quality. I have the Asus Direct CUII OC, I love it but its a triple slot. I think the heatsink is worth it though, stays really cool if you tweak the fan settings.
