Card choice dilema between 670 680

This week, theres some INSANE deals on gtx 670 and 680 from asus Direct CuII. 280$ for 670 380 for 680. I dont know if the 100$ is worth the extra power. I am running single monitor, a 520w Seasonic psu and planning to overclock the card.

Basically, do i save 100$, get 670 so it'll last 2-3 years, get a second one then and sli or get a 680 make it last 3-4 years and sli.

Is the extra power even noticeable on single screen gaming?

    Think I'd go with the 670 at those prices, then in the future, like you say could SLI and it'll be even less
  2. Instead of the 680 I would go ahead and get the 770 if you can afford it and the extra power will keep your games maxed for quite a while

    The more I think about it the moreits a good idea. the 670 is plenty of GPU power to run all games at high right? And when ill want to slii will buy a used 670 for 200$ and get the power of 1.5x~ gtx 680 for the same price!

    The 770 is not an option. It is grossly overpriced atm when the 600 series is on sale. 279,99 for a gtx 670 vs 449,99 for gtx 770 not worth it in my opinion.
  4. Then definitely go with the 670

  8. ummmmm...... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-131-478&Tpk=N82E16814131478

    $199 for a 7950 is easily by far the best performance to price ratio your going to find on anything at this moment.
