GTX-670 SLI, GTX-680 SLI, or GTX 690 (Which one)

Which cards or card should I get for my PC I'm running games on my Dell 30" screen resolution 2560 x 1600. I want to buy the best one for the money and one that will last me for a while. I know the GTX-670 is the cheapest one, but is it the right one? Here is a short description of the cards that I'm considering. The following info. is based on one card only not a SLI combined.

GTX-670 Superclocked, will be running this card in SLI
GPU Speed 967Mhz
Pixel Pipeline 1344
Boost Clock 1046
Ram 4096
Price x 2 = $980

GTX-680 Superclocked, will be running this card in SLI
GPU Speed 1110Mhz
Pixel Pipeline 1536
Boost Clock 1176
Ram 4096
Price x 2 = $1260

GTX-690
GPU Speed 915Mhz
Pixel Pipeline 3072
Boost Clock 1019
Ram 4096
Price x 1 = $1000

Thanks for any advice!

  2. Best answer
    GTX670. But pick up the Gigabyte version. The Windforce 3 cooler is fantastic. I have it over clocked to 1005Mhz > 1188Mhz boost and it never goes higher then 72C. Not to mention it runs Silent.. I see some setting the base clock to 1100Mhz+ boosting around 1300Mhz on this card.
