ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 2GB $535AUD delivered from Amazon.com

180

This is the cheapest I've seen a GTX 680 anywhere. Currently priced at USD $499 + delivery, which comes to about AUD $535 total. It is virtually impossible to find a GTX 680 below $600 locally, and local prices for this particular one are near $700 (excluding delivery!):

I bought one of these cards from Amazon.com when they were first released (paid a bit more than the current price, but still well below local retail) and haven't had any issues at all. The card is great, plays everything on max settings and it came with a free copy of Assassin's Creed 1, 2 and Revelations.

    What does a bird say " CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP"
    Thanks great price.

    Don't GTX 670s deliver almost the same performance?

      They do OC'd vs stock.

      You can pay the same price for an AMPED!, FTW or DirectCUII version and OC to about 1100-1200 core. Ive read reviews that the 680's can go up to 1300mhz, depends on the cooler i guess.

    •  

      A lot of the 670's on Amazon don't ship to Aus, leaving you paying higher local prices. I'd say this is worth the small premium

      I was going to buy a 680 for desktop but am going to buy the Kepler bases 680 for mobile in stead, which just came out, just waiting on the laptops.

    I could pawn off both my second computer and car, and still not justify buying this

      o_O lots of graphics cards are used to crunch data these days.

      One example:

      Black Hat Hackers can easily afford these. Some even use cheap ps3's to do the job.

    extremely very tempted
    hmm.. can i vote negative -because- it's just too tempting?

    guess this will bottleneck my i3-540 OC (and can't afford new mobo/cpu as well).
    Oh well.. just gotta wait a little longer

    Just bought 1 thanks OP. The total price was actually only US$514.32 for me, which is about $514 AUD as well.

    Very good price!!!

    Let me know when you find a GTX690 for a bargain that will ship here.

    •  

      it's better to buy two of these and do SLI

      you'll get more money selling individual 680s than selling one 690

        given what a 690 cost here ($1600?), you could buy three of these 680s for tri-sli

        Well given I tend to pass on old hardware (my current card is a 275) to my folks I'm not concerned about resale. This single card should use less power a be quieter then 2x680's. I'm not after an Overclock'n speed test machine .. I just want to play games at my 27"'s native resolution. 1x680 seems to maybe just handle it, a 690 does it easily… and should do for a few years of game upgrades I would hope. I'm happy to wait till prices drop further in a few months / hopefully the Aussie dollar gets stronger. For some people 2x680's will make more sense I am sure.

    wish I have the money,
    better buy when you can, Amazon stop shipping to Australia for many IT products (eg 3tb hard drive)

  •  

    But this is Zotac, is it not worse off than brands like Asus and Evga? (No idea)

    Also, I was going to buy 2 x Evga GTC 670 FTW's, and they're the exact same price as this? What should I go for?

    • +1 vote

      With reference design cards, the brand doesn't really matter at all. Zotac has a 5 year warranty (may not work here, but says they stand by this product)

      I'd go for the 580 (s) at this price

      •  

        You mean 680?

        And People tell me that the brand does matter in this regard…?

        •  

          derp, yeah I mean 680

          Since you won't get the warranty internationally it doesn't really matter imo

          Performance should be the same, since 99% of 670's can be overclocked yourself to FTW levels

          A better cooler (Like the Asus DC type or MSI Windforce) might be worth extra, most EVGA's use the default

    •  

      WHy the f**k are people voting me down? Apparently in Ozbargain you can't ask an innocent question without people on their high horse marking you down!

  •  

    Can anyone confirm if Zotac will support the warranty internationally or not?

  •  

    From reading the zotac au site I don't think they will honour the warranty. Now is it worth the loss of a warranty to get a 680 the same price as a 670 local.

  •  

    This is a bargain, but not exactly a new bargain. I bought a gigabyte reference gtx680 nearly 2 months ago for a little less than this when the AUD was stronger.

    For those having trouble catching them in stock from amazon, nowinstock.net is your friend.

      It's useful, but most of the places don't even ship to Australia.. that would be useful as well.

    What a beast!
