I'm very pleased with my GTX 680. It's Gigabyte's Windforce X3 oc version. It's super quiet and I've never seen temps go above 50c. I sold my 7970 for this card and I have to say it was probably worth. Now I have the reliability of nVida and have a couple of extra features like PhysX etc. In terms of frame rates, I only play BF3, the rate was far more consistent on the 680, on the 7970 the frame rates would fluctuate a lot on the 680 they're pretty steady.
Don't have any plans on overclocking atm, it's already factory oc'd and It's fast enough. I didn't want to get a GTX 670, because I think it would have been more of a downgrade from a 7970."
Getting the 680 was a good choice and the Gigabyte Windforce is a great card.
Post a pic and let us know how you like the card once it's in your system and running.

Congrats on the EVGA Signature II 680.
You should be able to break 1200 Mhz on the Core.
It's actually very easy to over clock Kepler. It just takes time figuring out offsets. Work on your Core first to 1200 MHz then work a bit on memory.How to: 680 overclocking fundamentals
