Hello everyone!

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! :)

  1. Not sure if you know but the GTX670 is $100 cheaper and about 92-95% as fast as the GTX680 and SHOULD be easier to find than GTX680.,3200.html

    Oh and Ivy Bridge was released weeks ago.
  2. 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.
