Default What should I do, my Head is still up in the Clouds.

Recently I won a Shed Load of Money on the lottery, and I'm woundering if I should purchase the Geforce GTX690, or go for the GTX680. Considering that its only a Bord that surports PCIe 2.0. Just don not know what to do. And I'm not on about the £100 on the £10 Lotto instant Win I mentioned in the Members section, in what have I done today.

If you are going for folding power then get a 590. It folds more than a 690. All cards mentioned do 3.0 and 2.0.

PP, 1 CUDA Core = to 5 Stram Prosessors. Is that rite? So their would be 1024 x 5 = 5120 Stream Prossesors.

Kepler has more cores but they are weaker compared to Fermi.
