Hello everyone!

I'm from Kuwait and currently trying to decide which GPU to get. As local shops don't have new GPUs yet.. I have to order one online. Delivery usually takes 2weeks, and I want my PC ready for first week of june. I have to decide which GPU to order within this week. I'm not sure if I should wait for EVGA gtx680 ftw or get the gtx 680 sc+ from tigerdirect.

your input is appreciated! :)

yeah that was a quote from my old pc build topic :p 

and yes I do know that the gtx 670 is close to the performance of the stock 680.. but im talking about the sc+ one.. my budget isn't that strict.

The FTW is clocked higher than the signature so its really up to you at the end of the day , try and get the one with the backplate , they look so much better.
