HD5970 to GTX680 worthy upgrade???

Guys,
I'm trying to decide whether to upgrade my XFX HD5970 Black Edition. I bought this card just 3 years ago and it was the fastest card on the planet. It absolutley destroyed the GTX295. It still plays my games maxed at 1080p but FarCry 3 stutters like mad and I can't resolve it. So do I upgrade to a 7970 Ghz edition or a GTX 680, or probably wait until the Radeon 8000 series are in the shops? It's such a shame as it play FC3 all on High settings at 62fps but still stutters. Alot of YouTube vids show the 680 and 7970 as playing at 70 - 80fps. What should I do?

  1. I would wait for the new cards to come out
  2. The thing is in terms of specs will I really see much if any of a performance increase especially if i'm spending between £300 - £400? It would just eliminate microstutter. That's alot of money for not much performance.....
  3. Wait for new series or if you want this series the get hd 7970 ghz edition.
  4. YES... but if your are going to spend 550... wait.
    i picked up a zotac GTX680 AMP! for 449 with 40 dollar rebate...

    so if you can find one for under 449 yes!
