I really shouldn't curse so .. FRACK what a beast of a graphics card the GeForce GTX 690 really is --- admittedly, the price is rather beastly as well -- without doubt beyond anything we expected and with each year that passes the price seems to rise. US$999 / Euro 829 EX VAT / UK £839 INC VAT is what you are looking at. The GeForce GTX 690 is a limited volume product though, and as such NVIDIA could have priced these cards 2000 USD and would have still sold the inventory.
The overall gaming performance is breathtaking -- shocking -- jawbreaking.

What a beautiful card. SLI without the SLI. I like!
new drivers out to http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/44246
GeForce R300 drivers are packed with new industry-leading, GeForce-exclusive features as well as some really nice performance increases in top games.
New in R300 Drivers:

FXAA delivers similar quality to 4x multi-sample antialiasing (MSAA) but is up to 60% faster, enabling substantially higher performance in games. FXAA is supported on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs. Note: This feature is disabled for games that already have built-in support for FXAA. Visit GeForce.com to learn more.
•NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync – dynamically enables vertical sync based on your current frame rates for the smoothest gaming experience.
