So for the GPU Looking at

Did you look at any benchmarks for these cards? Or search if this question has been answered before on the forums?

If you look at the price difference between the 670 and 680, you would see it pretty significant. If you look at the benchmarks, you would see the performance is pretty small. You may want to consider the 670 for the cost savings alone, especially if the costs impacts your buying decisions, which it seems to since you say it will determine when you buy the card.

So, I would suggest you look at the 670 because its nearly as good, but much cheaper. If money is no object, go for the 680.

An overclocked 670 can surpass a 680 in performance. So that would save you some cash if you go that route. That asus 680 is a triple slot card, so make sure your mobo supports that if you get it. What resolution is your monitor and what kind of performance are you expecting?

Then pretty much you can look at the reviews, see if one card has some issues. Also, be aware of the number of slots each card requires. Lastly, if you want max performance out of the box, figure out which one is clocked higher.

On the surface it looks like the ASUS card, but I didn't read those links very closely.

well if your getting ready for BF4 your best bet is to wait for the next gen of radeon or GTX cards

well the EVGA SC Sig 2 has 1097 MHz Base Clock and 1163 MHz Boost Clock

While the Asus 680 top has 1137MHz and boost of 1201.

The Asus is looking good to be also bc of the Backplate, Will look nicer the the system, also 3 slots is no much of a deal for me, Im staying with a single gpu for a while, don't plan on SLi anytime soon.

Thought about next Gen also, but i've heard nvidia has delayed there release to Q3 or even next year, and AMD to have a release date next year also
