I am planning on getting the GTX 680 but can't really decide which brand to go with between (EVGA, ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte) i will probably overclock. But the thing here is while i were looking at these brands,
Palit GeForce GTX 680 JetStream 4GB showed up which looks better due to the airflow, sound, size etc. but the what got me confused is that it was like £60 cheaper than Asus GTX 680 (2GB) and about £70 more expensive than EVGA GTX 628 (2GB) But the Price doesn't matter to me since i want to buy the Best Brand for Gaming obviously but at the same time overclocking

Get the 670, its awesome and its slightly worse than the 680 like 7% but it costs $100 less ;)

Since you want to OC, you'll need a non reference card with a custom PCB to get more headroom for OCing, right now there's a problem with the availability of GTX 680.

Like they guys above recommended, right now the GTX 670 is the best bang for buck and the Asus or Gigabyte versions will allows you to get more from it.

Regarding the 4Gb version, it won't make a difference at all.

better go with a high quality custom cooled gtx 670 and give it a nice overclock.my suggestion would be MSi Twnifrozer iii(when it's ot LOL) or gigabyte windforce 3.

go for the asus as you said that money is not a subject so just chose it and watch for its performance

If money is not a factor look at the clock settings from each of the manufacturers. Then choose what you like. The two brands I'd go with are evga and msi. But, that is my personal preference.

Guys I really appreciate the answers, I have checked GTX 670 and they seem to be on the same price range at Amazon.co.uk, so i won't be saving much there. I am doing a new computer build and that is why i really want a GPU that has good cooling and overclocking capabilities, Should i consider the GTX 690. Here is how my computer components look so far;

Cosair Special Edition Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower Gaming Case
Asus P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard
Intel Core i7-3930K
Corsair H100
Corsair Ax1200 PSU
Samsung SSD 830
Western Digital Caviar Black
G Skill Ripjaws Z 16GB DDR3 PC17000 2133MHz
LG 10x Internal Blu-Ray
And of course GPU

but not sure wich to go with yet could anyone tell me if this one is any good
