Hello,
as it says in the title people.
I have the 670 currently and have been offered a 680 for an extra £30. I really don't know if it is worth it or not?
Please help

For 30 extra quid... sure, why not. It's 8% faster, give or take (assuming you have a reference 670).

on a side note here, which would hold its value longer?

I think neither would hold it's value for long when the GTX 660 Ti is about 10-15% slower than a GTX 680 for about half it's price according to current rumors. I think you will be fine with your GTX 670, the only thing I would consider a GTX 680 is if you will not be upgrading for a few years as the extra shaders cluster would help in future games.

It's your call ;)

It's a tough one isn't it. The thing is I thought the same when the 560ti came out but still got a great return on my 580. The only thing I am thinking is will people even want to pay the extra in a years time when I upgrade again? I mean, my 670 is only around 5% slower than a 680. Why can't graphic card designers make this easier for us. I think maybe I will just get the asus 670 top. Seems to be the best gpu on the market right now
