Herro everyone! I've got a 'sort of' outdated build that I'm upgrading coming up, and I'd just like to know if anyone out there has went from the 560ti 448 Cuda to the 680 and if they saw a big enough of a jump to justify the $500+ price tag on it. I stay on top of hardware and I've checked multiple sources to find information and mostly I can only find 560ti SLI to 680 posts. My build is listed below:

Case - Cooler Master HAF932
PSU - 730w Raidmax
CPU - i5 2500k OC'd to 4.5ghz
Cooler - Corsair H80 liquid cooler
GPU - Asus 560ti 448 1.25gb
HDD - 1.5TB Seagate 7200rpm
SSD - 256GB OCZ Agility III
Motherboard - Asus P8Z68-V Pro
Ram - 16GB Gskill Ripjaw 1600mhz
Monitors - 42" Vizio TV(only used when streaming movies), 2x 23" Asus monitors

PS: I know about the arguments with AMD vs Nvidia.... I'm an Nvidia fanboi so probably not gonna change my mind lol.

I personally would go to a 670. But, If you have the money...

I mean, Kepler is an amazing chip. I went from a 550ti to a 660 and the boost in quality was incredible.
And the 680 is recommended by many new games for their (High Performance Specs)

Yea, I mean I've done research on the cards and was debating between the 670 and the 680 still not sure which I want to go with lol. The texel rate seems to be the big difference between the 670 and the 680, other than that they seem to be a decent match.

Yes, the gtx 680 would be a great upgrade. It is more than 3 tiers higher. But you should try to sell off your 560ti to get more money back

From everything Ive seen, The 670 performs just a FEW frames lower than the 680. But is also $100 cheaper.

-5 ish FPS or + $100? lol

Guess it depends on personal pref at the end. :D 

Texel Fill rates is for anisotropic filtering i believe

I would say, 680 for 2560x1400 and 670 for 1920X1080

Yea it's for AF, and I've already got a buyer for my 560ti so that actually knocks off almost $200 there.

You seem quite informed. Just not sure if you really want to spend the money?

Yea for the most part lol. I'm actually a PC tech, but I was just wanting some other insight before going through with the upgrade. I've always been atleast somewhat decent with hardware configurations.
