I want to buy myself a new graphics card but just can't choose betwen these two.
The GTX 580 3GB Phantom has more memory but GTX 680 is faster.
Memory or Speed?

I mostly play games but also work with after effects and 3d programs like 3DS max.

My system specs:
Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L
Proccesor: Intel i7 3770k
Memory: G.Skill 1600MHz 4x4GB
Power: MSI PRO-550 ATX
Cooler ASUS 1225S1/D1

Thanks for the answer and i would really like to buy that card but i can only choose between these two :/ 
They dont have this one in my shop and i would have to pay extra for shipment.

because it's newer faster & uses less power and is a better card than a 580 ;)  unless your using three monitor there is no need for the 3GB the 2GB is plenty

because of the reason right there......
GTX 580 gets my vote.

the GTX 6 series (Kepler) is not design for such apps, (Fermi) GTX 5 series is.
and the GTX 580 can still game like a beast.
if gaming only then no doubt I would say the GTX 680.


Thanks but I will still choose GTX 680 because i play games more than i work on AE and 3ds.
I mean i am not a Pro like i am working with them all day and night.
I am still learning and using the programs like 3 or 4 times in a month for making
short movies ,intros and stuff like that.Nothing really advanced that could use alot of memory and proccesing power
Simple stuff for beginners :) 

So i think i will buy the GTX 680.Thanks for the reply :)
