Right now I have...

Corsiar 500R case (great cooling)
I7 2700k @4500 H100 cooler
16 GB vengeance @1600Mhz
Asrock Z77 Pro4 Mobo
Intel 180GB SSD
Seasonic X650 80+ Gold

Graphics card is a EVGA GTX 560Ti. Im looking to buy MSI N680GTX Twin Frozr 4GD5/OC. I can get a deal on it for $480 right now. Is it really that beast? Will it work with my setup? Big improvement? I need some reassurance before this purchase. Its alot of money. I play all the latest games. I would love to play on ultra. I use one 1080p monitor with 120Hz. I would like to maybe try 3D too. Thanks for any incites!

rather get a 670 for $100 less and overclock it to the level of a stock 680 and get the same performance for less money !!

^Agreed - it's only 7% slower for $100 less.

Thanks for the reply. Ive read this everywhere now but OC on a GTX 670 will bring it up to a reference GTX 680 correct? What about a OCed 680 lke the one i listed above. I'm no expert so please say im wrong if i am. I want to make an informed decision.
