So, I almost had a GTX 680 snagged for 300$. But the guy gave it to his brother, slightly pissed now, but faced with yet another problem, and I need help from my fellow graphic card experts around.
So we all saw the potential from the 680, and especially the pricing, real nice from Nvidia! Anyway that is not my problem. I am stuck now between either buying the GTX 680 for 620$ (388£) and the Sapphire 7950 OC for 490$ (308£), and crank OC's up on the 7950 ofcourse. I will also only be gaming on one 1920x1080, hence thinking the 680 might be a bit overkill...
The two cards:
looking at the prices your quoting(and the gaps) it seems like that the 7970 might also be cheaper than a 680 where you are. In which case I'd get a 7970 hands down. When both a 680 and 7970 are Max overclocked they are VERY close.
