Get the EVGA GTX 670 FTW and it beats even a reference GTX 580 out the box and costing $100 cheaper. IMO, buying a reference GTX 680 is a bit pointless and a waste of money when you can have better performance for cheaper in the EVGA GTX 670 FTW.

You could sell your GTX 560 Ti or do what I did and keep it as a dedicated PhysX card.


You can SLI the 560 Ti as it will be a nice improvement, just that you will have micro stuttering here and there common to SLI/CF setups.

What is micro stuttering and would i get that with 670 SLI?

Micro-stuttering is slight stutter when you have multi-GPU setups, this phenomenon is more common with lower end cards. High end cards are the most resistant against micro-stuttering and Nvidia SLI fairs a bit better than AMD CF against micro-stuttering.

You would get it here and there once in a while. You will be fine with that setup. Just make sure your PSU, CPU and such are up to snuff to handle such powerful GPU's.
