they are both DirectCU II TOP, i deiced to get the TOP models because i will be ocing and i want the best quality the is.
so my question is what do you think is the best of the two baring in mind that i will be ocing and the is a possibility that i will be running 3 monitors in the future. also i am open to suggestions so if you think that my money would be best spent on something else please let me know.
as far as the budget goes its hard to say as i have £700 for a new mobo, cpu, ram and graphics card so i could always spend a little more on a the graphics card and loose out some where else, tbh i don't see the point in spending any more because after ocing they will be performing the same as a more expensive card.
also, they are the best cards that my PSU can handle unless i start using molex to 8pin power adapters.
Only you can decide what your money is worth. One is faster, but more expensive. Is it worth the speed? Depends on how much money you have and how much you value clicking one setting one more value higher on your video game.
thanks guys, after reading the article on hardocp its clear that the 670 is the one to go for it can even be oc'ed to a higher clock speed than the 680.
anyone want to add something before a select best answer??
Yes but the clock speed doesn't tell the whole story. The 680 overclocked still delivers about 5 fps more than the 670 overclocked (it has more cuda cores ). +/- a few frames, its different for each game and for different resolutions.
So really, the question is, "Do you want to pay $100 for 5 more fps"? The more wealthy you are, the more likely you are to answer yes. The answer is different for everyone.
