I could go with the same 120hz 1080p samsungs that vega used before he went old skool, but I feel like I'd like more pixels if I can. We'll see. I can't help but feel the 680 will devalue a lot once the GK110 comes out. But a lot depends on AMD, if there's no competition then nvidia will be able to keep the 680 prices the same and launch the GK110 at 800+. I think I'm maybe affected by the mid-range chip stigma of the 680, hard to pay 550 for a card that you know is going to be whipped by the "full" version in 6 months.
Yeah the 680 launch was a little disappointing. Seemed rushed to compete with the 7970. THere is the "if you start playing the waiting game, you'll wait forever"
you could just pick up a temp card like I did with my 6990/now lightning 7970. I'm mostly waiting for 7990s, I'll maybe hop to the green train if nVidia surround ever supports 5 monitors.

Haven't heard too much of those lately. Saw them showcased a while ago but no news on pricing or release date. They'd definitely be optimal for my setup
