Couldn't believe how much cooler and quieter the 680s are over the 470s. It's like night and day.
Yes they run hot, i also tried this:
Buth the 470's cant be used in 4-way sli.
and for the 680 4gb i think i will need 2 of them to call it a performance upgrade (maybe not i dont know for sure).
i read that the extra vram doesnt help much in today's games even at 5760x1080 and that it has a to small bus.
Thats why i'm not sure on upgrading.
The heat and noise wil be a lot less buth they cost like 1200 or so and just for that i dont think its worth.
