I see there's a 590 on the list. Before I got my card someone was selling an RMA'd EVGA GTX 590 Classified for around $450. But I still went for the bnew GTX 680. hehe, IDK if that was the right choice..I do plan on getting a 2nd 680 in the future though.

I would think 2 680s would be better than a 590.... thinking.gif

Even 1 680 is on par or very close to the 590 performance in some games.

I would say he made the better choice with a single 680. SLI would be great in the future and for now, the 680 will be more smoother and stable than a 2 GPU based sli card.

I don't know about you guys, but NVIDIA letting 7970s trounce all over us with better drivers is killing me. Not to mention the fact that I paid twice the price of a 7950 for my 680 4gb and the 7950 with new drivers almost beats it. This 680 is the first NVIDIA for me, and the jury is out whether it will be my last. I figured the 690 4gb would at least keep pace and was hoping it would blow away any 7970 that was produced, now it's gonna get pwned by a 7950...... get real NVIDIA. At least match the price point of around $300 or less for a 7950......... geeeeeeesh, I hate being suckered.

I have NO bottlenecks either: 3770k, 32gb 2400mhz gskill, asus z77 premium......

Huh, I had always heard that the catalyst were horrible. They must have fixed that. Are you oc'ing your 7950? all of the benchmarks I saw put the 680 at or better than a slightly oc 7970........

Yup saw some benchies on 680 vs 590 performance and the 680 does come quite close. Plus the resale value of dual GPU cards aren't as good as 2, single GPU cards. Don't have the cash for a second 680 yet, maybe next yr lol.

I think people are giving too much credit to AMD. I know how people always want to cheer for the little guy but come on, a 7970 might have very slight frame increases on some games but not in general. And I've never heard of the 7950 performing anywhere close to the 670/680 range until you mentioned it. The latest catalyst drivers are definitely giving their cards great performance, but I still believe AMD got lucky. After all these years NVIDIA had better drivers, only now did AMD have better ones.

Also if your a gamer (and I keep saying this in other threads), you have to look BEYOND frames per second, especially since these cards all do above 60 fps in almost all circumstances. That being said, NVIDIA has TXAA and PhysX as some examples of techs AMD has yet to provide. Granted these are small advantages and not available in all games, I'd still take them over the 5-8fps (at most) advantage to getting an AMD card.

Just my opinion..smile.gif

Very well Put. I have never and will never buy AMD just not a fan. I have to admit that them being half price compared to Intel has been tempting on occasion but not enough technology for me to go to the dark side.

I agree with delta, It's hard to know that not only are AMDs cards a lot cheaper but they're performing better is most circumstances. Not only that but they have fully unlocked voltage tweaking in most cases without having to flash the bios or mod. Ah well, not that anyone gives a shi, I'd still keep adaptive vsync any day lol smile.gif
