available to me are the 4gb and 2gb variants. My problem is that the 2gb has a base clock speed of 1137mhz, and a memory speed of 6200mhz. Where's the 4GB variant has a base clock speed of 1071mhz, and a memory speed of 6008mhz. Price difference is by $79. If I do get a GTx680, which do I get? and why?

Short answer: Don't
The Radeon HD 7970 outperforms it the majority of the time, and at a lower price point.
If you are a die hard nvidia fan, buy a GTX 670 for $100 less and get 5% lower speeds.
OR
Wait for 700 series which will come out in like a week..
