What choose? 670 AMP or 680?

I'm hesitant about what vga I have to choose. I've found a Zotac GTX 670 AMP (this http://www.zotacusa.com/geforce-gtx-670-amp-zt-60302-10... ) and a MSI GTX 680 (this http://it.msi.com/product/vga/N680GTX-PM2D2GD5.html ) at about same price.
Now, you know that the 680 is better than 670, but the AMP model of Zotac is heavily overclocked and some sites reports in many benchmarks that has also better performances than a standard 680.
You can see in these links http://www.nexthardware.com/recensioni/schede-video/697...

What's your suggestion? Keep in mind that the 680 is an USED vga. Owner, has bought it on April 2012, but I'm pretty sure that is in optimal conditions.

When you can always go with a new card, Just a better Idea. Im sure that the 670 will do everything you need it to.

Go with the 670 - it's about 5% worse than a 680, and, when overclocked, performs just as well as an overclocked 680.

I don't want to overclock an already overclocked vga.

Well if you don't want to then get either one both are good i would still get the AMP!I wouldn't buy a used 680 but if you don't mind pick whatever your not overclocking so either will do ;)
