OK im here probably for the 4th time but I just want to make sure its almost Christmas and I need the most out for my system. Originally I was thinking of getting 2 680 Superclocked Signatures in SLI because I already have one. But now im wondering if its better to sell the 680 i have now for like 400$ on ebay and buy 2 770s in sli since they are a little better than 680 and better performance for money.

My Spec:
RAM: 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600
GPU: EVGA GTX 680 2GB Superclocked Signature+
CPU: Intel I7 2600k @ O.C 4.5GHz
PSU: Antec CP-850 850 Watt
Monitor: BenQ XL2420T
Case: Antec 1200 V3

So either buy another 680 right now there one on ebay im hoping to snipe or get 2 770s and sell my 680 on ebay for like 400$. Please help me because this decision needs to be made quick.

The link above is the Toms Hardware Graphics Hierarchy Chart that is released each month , you will notice that the GTX 680 is at the same level as the GTX 770 so what you propose will not add up to any performance gain. You will be better off adding the second GTX 680.

Yes its similar but the 770 offers gpu boost 2.0 and more memory bandwith also newer version i would rather spend money on 770. The prices are almost similar the thing is how much do you think people would buy my 680 for used?

GPU Boost 2.0's sole benefit is a minutely higher voltage cap. You can get the higher memory speed by overclocking (770 is 7000Mhz, 680 is 6000Mhz). If you must have a 770 just flash your 680.

I do a lot of selling on ebay and have sold GTX 480"s , GTX 580's , GTX 680's along with Motherboards , CPUs and ram all used.. What I've found is that the items will sell but you have to be prepared to wait. There is no way to tell when someone will see your listing and want it. Then you have all the low ball offers , like if you listed the card for $400 someone will offer $250 or $275 hoping to get it cheap. So it will depend on you and what you want to do , wait or jump.

You mean buy it now ? There are three ways to list an item , Auction , Buy it now and Best offer.

Auction , you can start the price of the item at any amount that you want from $1 to the $400 your thinking of , this is risky if you start too low and there are not a lot of bids.

Buy it Now, You list the item at a price point that you will accept and a person can then elect to do the buy it now or not.

Best Offer , this will let buyers offer a price and you can either accept or decline. You will have to set a low limit that you automaticly decline.

I usually do the Buy it Now and if someone sends me a message offering close to the amount I can either accept it and relist at that price for a buy it Now or decline it and wait.
