670 and 680 general question

1)What makes the 680 so damn expensive?? I mean both their performance are damn similar except lower clock / cuda cores in 670

2)If i use my PC for hardcore video editing and photo editing,do i need 680 or 670 will just work fine?? I'm running on 1920x1080 24 inch monitor

PS: i play all games too, but i'm more looking forward to playing Crysis 3, i would like to play it in maxed out

  1. What makes you think you need anything near as powerful as either of those cards? You could probably get by with a gtx 460 for 100 bucks.
  2. in case you need it only for video and photo encoding/editing and you don't game...you better get the quadro

    but for games the gtx670 would be great
  3. MSI's GTX 670 Power Edition uses the famous Twin Frozr IV cooler from the MSI Lightning and comes with a large clock speed boost out of the box, making its default clock speed even higher than GTX 680 stock clocks.That would be a solid choice for the price imo they currently are going for $389.99 a piece that doesn't look unreasonable, given the improved cooling and higher clocks but it's up to you.
  4. GTX680 is overpriced simply because it's their top model and they know some people will pay that much to have the best. It's a waste of money though, stick with GTX670. And don't get that GTX460 :-) This may sound crazy but I don't think a GTX460 is gonna be maxing Crysis 3 at 1080p...
