Check out some reviews of the classy, I'm pretty sure it is louder than the reference 580, and it also used 50 watts more power for similar clocks to the lightning. The classy reviewed most is the regular on not the ultra which is 850 or 855 or something to the Lighting's 832 but the classy used 50 watts more, that stood out as odd to me.

No matter which way you decide I think everyone can agree that it would be best to wait until the 23rd and at least see how the 680 does, if you decide you still want the classy then it might get a price drop soon afterwards. Only reason I can think of to not see how the 680 does on the 23rd would be if you absolutely must have a fast GPU right now, in which case it's not really a choice.
