As long as we keep getting console ports, theres honestly no reason to buy 500 dollar card.

There is when you want minimums above 60fps.

I was in the same predicament. I chose a second 470, just because it's much much cheaper than going 680. A single 470 will run you 150ish, whereas a 680 after selling your 470 will be $350. If the extra memory, speed, and lower temps/noise are worth that $200 to you though, then I'd go 680.

Sli 560 Ti OC surpasses the GTX 680 at stock speeds, and accordingly to what I'v saw, its on pair when both are OC'ed. When companies start making their own PCB and OC editions that might change, since the reference PCB has some limitations.

Id personally get another gtx470. They can be found really cheap here on marketplace now and the performance is still amazing. Upgrade in a year from now and you could pick up a gtx680 much cheaper or something better for the price the 680 is at now. gtx470s are undervalued price-wise for their performance currently. Now is a great time to buy another one for cheap, rather than try and sell your card for less than what its worth.

Two of my 480's are rigged with Antec 620's and my EVGA with stock cooling has yet to surpass 66C during full load. For me, a single 480 is pretty overkill as far as BF3 and SW:TOR. A second one is just a waste of power for me, as is my 2600k =]

I was considering doing this, as well. It's just very vram limited nowadays. Plus, the headaches of a multi-gpu setup.

680 does not beat 590 at stock.

 

680 with boost (oc) beats though

 

590 can be oced too.

 

but i agree that 4xx owners might want to jump to the kepler wagon

Im an owner of two 470 in SLI.

Here is the overclocked score from 3DMark 11. Running on air btw.

I wont be buying the 680 since in a niche market like NZ the 680 will be extremely overpriced and there is no market to sell my 470s second hand.
