I just bought a GTX680 (has not arrived yet though), so that will give you an idea how I feel on the GPU matter. However, if I were building new right now, I'd get a Z77 mobo that has Lucid MVP and a GTX570. The MVP technology is very impressive and it will allow a much lesser GPU to perform like a high end one. If they get all the bugs worked out with MVP, its going to make high end/high cost GPUs obsolete for gamers on a single 1080 screen.

Seagate 7200.12 drives are faster & much more reliable than western digital & hitachi drives,
for the gpu part I still consider a hd7970 overall to be better card than gtx680.

7200.12 drives are better.
For the gpu part,in benchmarks and computing power hd7970 is a tad better but if the card will be used for gaming purpose the gtx680 is a much superior card.
Sorry,go for evga gtx680 sc+/sc that will be launched soon but there is no information when the classified/ftw version is launching.

That's a stock GTX 680 vs a stock 7970 in that graph on the first page. Check any major GPU reviewing site and you'll see there's a decent little gap between the 7970 and GTX 680. However this is not why we are here.


Back to the OP...

Grab the GTX 680 if you can get one. It's considerably better than the GTX 580. It may cost say... 33% more... but it offers a near 100% increase in performance for most games. The lowest increase was like 60% for a poorly optimized game. It matches/succeeds a GTX 590/HD6990 in almost every game.
