I want to buy this amazing PC but I want to extend this PC with a GTX 680. Is this possible?

Because this PC has standard a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 with Intel HD Graphics 4600 (GT2) integrated graphics.

It already comes with a GTX 680 which means that a second card will be unable to fit in the case. –  Ramhound Jun 27 '13 at 15:17
    
Yes I know it already haves a GTX 680, but I want 2 of them so that I can have 4GB dedicated graphic memory. Is there no slot free for another GTX 680? –  Brent Jun 27 '13 at 15:23
    
The motherboard clearly per the specifications only has a single PCIEx16 slot. As I indicated beyond the fact you don't have the required PCIEx16 slot it wouldn't be able to fit 2 cards in the case nor provide 2 of those cards enough power. –  Ramhound Jun 27 '13 at 15:51

No you can't.

There's basically two ways you can use a pair of video cards, and both require 2 physical x16 slots, running at at least x8. This has one, and a bunch of x1 slots.

Some folk HAVE used risers to put video cards into lesser PCI slots, but in your case, that would be pointless - the video card will likely saturate a single PCIe channel.

There's simply no room for it on that motherboard.
