Unfortunately I have to wait until next Tuesday before I can order my GTX 680, any clue when newegg or other websites will be getting a new stock of 680's? Thanks.

I'm waiting for the later versions from EVGA. Probably be a few months more.

I would wait that long if I could, im using a 4890 thats on its way out. Almost tempted to just go ahead and get a 7970.

If you can give it a week or two then wait on the GTX680. It's a better card at a better price. I would guess that the second shipment to retailers will be larger than the first and your odds of actually getting a card will be pretty good in a few weeks at most.

Actually clock for clock the 7970 and 680 are similar to the point they trade blows but at both stock the GTX 680 is faster clock for clock 7970 is more powerful tho.

What benchmarks have you been looking at? The GTX680 is not only faster than the HD7970 it's $100 cheaper. Try reading those articles on the front page.

If you think Tom's Hardware has biased benchmarks why exactly are you on this site?

I said what ? yes I read TH review but sometimes it is better to also consider video reviews/benchmarks from other reputable publications like the ones I have suggested to you to ensure you get a more rounded view from differing angles.

This one compares an XFX 7970 Black Edition ( factory overclocked ) against a reference GTX680 and they even mention that. You might want to pay more attention to the reviews you cite. The Tom's Hardware review compares stock vs stock and overclocked vs overclocked.

Stock clocks are higher on the Nvidia 1020 vs 925mhz on the Radeon so please stop being a bigot and trolling open your eyes to the possibilities that maybe Radeon and Nvidia are both making great cards and they might even just be competitive. Plus Motherboards.org Elric's review states the differences that do not change like power draw and heat, dimensions, ect.
I stated "clock for clock the 7970 and 680 are similar" I did not state that when GTX 680 is clocked higher it is the similar speed in games as the 7970 I mean when both cards are clocked at the same MHZ they perform similar.
