Hi guys,

I've just ordered a Gigabyte 670 windforce card for £323 but spotted pc world are selling a gtx 680 pny card for £346 is it worth the extra for the next card (even if it is reference cooler etc?)

Thanks for the advice

TPUs performance summary shows that reference GTX 680 is only 2% faster than gigabyte gtx 670:

£23 more is 7% more expensive. I'd stick with 670.
You can try to overclock it even more and achieve ref. GTX680 performance, and this windforce cooler is great.

The 670 WindForce you got is an excellent card. You won't need anything else honestly! :)  Have fun!

Thank you need to stop second guessing my build :)  and I didn't really have a spare £30!
