Asus gtx 680 directcu II price?

used one that I can grab for 420 right now. Is it worth it or should I just go with something else? Btw playing at 1920x1080.

Or I have the option of a new GTX 680 SC Signature from EVGA for 445.

  1. I'd go with the Asus. The dual fans will allow for better cooling, meaning better overclocking too. The performance difference between the two is minimal.
  2. Just throwing out there, the 680 is an absolute waste of money.

    It's only 5% faster than a 670, but it's 25-30% more expensive.

    When you consider that both cards will max out the same games, why would you spend an extra $100 for virtually no performance benefit?
  3. I would get a 7970. Overclocked slightly to 1.1GHz will allow it to completely destroy the 680.

    Or you could get this factory overclocked one that's already at 1.1GHz.

    This, plus if you consider a reference 680 vs a aftermarket 670, the 670 will likely end up faster after an OC because its temps and noise will be more tolerable.
  5. I feel like you guys didn't even read the post. Its not a reference 680. Its an asus 680 directcu ii OC. For 420. Which is what a 670 would cost. Thanks anyways though
  6. Get the asus dc2 680, is it a dc2t version as in TOP? because that goes for like $500+, getting 420 is a bargain considering asus gtx 670 dc2 going at $420 too
  7. For those who keeps saying gtx 670 is better price/performance, well if it is so, everyone would be buying the 670 and those who buys the 680 are not smart? it is better, at games that demand more, you would expect a different from two cards. Why would they release two cards that gives 5% performance different at $100 more?

    680 is for bragging rights, 670 offers far more value considering price to performance ratio.
