they're not equal at all where I am concerned, for my 120Hz 1080p monitor the GTX680 is looking like the not-even-close obvious
for the extreme minority of gamers running a multimonitor setup it looks like the 7970s might end up with an edge, but those gamers probably already invested in a 7900 upgrade back in January...

Honestly? YOu're in the 0.01% of PC computer uses who use multi-monitor setups.
I don't think that counts.
Faster the 7970, cheaper, uses less power...
680 stomps the 7970. Even @ 2560 x 1600, even with it's 1GB less of VRAM.
VRAM buffer won't matter with single monitor resolutions for retail games, the GTX680's 256bit interface is really its biggest bottleneck in that regard. Had nVidia gone with a 512bit interface and "only" 2GB of ram the curb stomping would have been even more thorough, granted the card would be even more expensive than it already is.
