bought this computer on kijiji for 1100 !! comes with screen keyboard and mouse!!
$1100? That's a fantastic deal... +1 to you.
Lucky you. BTW you have the gpu and case listed wrong. The case is the cm storm trooper.The gpu is a reference card.
Ohh!! sorry! my mistake! is there a difference between a reference card and a non-reference card?! I hope it is a good deal !!!
Reference cards sre typically cheaper and do not cool as well, but they work fine. THe one you listed is very similar to the reference card, but it has a 4gb vram. are you sure it is 4gb? or is it the typical 2gb?
in my dxdiag specs it shows 4gb
If it's 4gb and a reference Nvidia design from EVGA, it's a 670, not a 680. All of EVGA's 4gb 680's use custom shrouds and the only reference 680's are 2gb.
EDIT: Even stranger, your 670/680 doesn't have a back plate on it. All 4gb model of EVGA cards have a back plate as they're considered a premium product. The fact that yours doesn't is raising more red flags.
A reference card is basically uses the stock design from GPU manufacturer (in your case NVidia). Non reference cards are cards where the 3rd party manufacturer (like EVGA, MSI, Asus) makes improvements to reference design. A Non reference cards can have upgraded heat sinks, fans and even PBC.
Non reference board usually run cooler, and possible faster. But, they usually can not be water cooled. Most GPU water blocks are design for reference cards.
I don't understand the need for a 1k watt power supply...
even though it's a great deal, -1 for not building it yourself...
Take it apart and put it together again to get upvotes! Amazing idea!
do you even lift tho
Why would he if it would cost a lot more?
