The general consensus seems to be to go with the gtx 680 if you can find it at the same price or less than the 7970. So, I returned my gigabyte 7970 (which was a very nice card) because I found a brand new EVGA superclocked gtx 680 on ebay for less money. However I am thoroughly disgusted at the fact that if I overclock the 680 gpu just 70 mhz to ~1240 (using evga precision x) it will crash every time.

That is pathetic. I know that with boost I am hitting 1163 without an overclock, but it would be nice to have a little headroom for overclocking. Is this something that is normal or is it something that merits an RMA to EVGA?

Thanks for the info. That does suck, but on the bright side, at least now I am getting decent frames in ACIII.
