I bought a HD7970 yesterday... Should I return it and get the GTX680 instead?

See how it overclocks IMO. If you can get to 1125/1575 (almost guaranteed) or higher (likely), and you're comfortable with that - no reason to return it.

If you just want to run your GPU at stock, then yeah return it and get a 680.

At 1920x1080 it won't matter at all, both cards are pushing max settings and 60fps.

I would return it though and just wait because the price has to drop.

Yes, the 7970 at $550 is robbery. AMD's strategy of underclocking their GPU's to rip of their costumers has backfired.

the 680 is looking like a champ

mind you id still use a 7970 or 2 for extreme resolutions, ie eyefinity. the 7970 definately catches up the higher you crank the resolution, the extra ram will help at some point as well.
