You can probably find a used 7970 for the price of a new 7950, with warranty in tact (buy an MSI, Asus, or Gigabyte card). If you do go the AMD route....try to find a non reference card if you're going to keep it stock. If you don't mind buying an aftermarket cooler for it...then go for reference and deal with the leaf blower till you get the aftermarket cooler.

how do you find a non reference card, and whats the difference?

Non reference cards will be the ones with the aftermarket coolers already installed. Reference cards typically have the stock "leaf blower" heatsink and fan on it.

SLI 560 Ti is faster than quad 680's in crossfire.

I am playing BF3 with two overclocked 560's with out any problems at 1080. I have everything set to ultra, HBAO on, both of the AA's off, and I'm using the AA injector that can be found on this site (which is better AA and it fixes the colors). It rarely dips below 50 fps, and when it does its for literally for less than a second, most of the time its >60

raw numbers, my 560's scored a graphics score in mark11 of about 8700. I think I saw a stock 680 score about a 9300 or 9400 graphics score (please correct me if I'm wrong.)

so yes a 680 will be a better choice, the only down side is price. were talking ~$300ish compared to $500 so its really up to you. Fairly close performance, for a couple hundred less, but you have to deal with sli (it never gives me any trouble, for some it does) also the 560's are now a generation old.

560ti sli does not seem worth it at all based on what others have been saying. I get similar results (55-65fps) in BF3 with all settings on ultra (HBAO, 2xMSAA and max AA, motion blur off) with a single overclocked GTX570.

i hear if you get the ti 448 core.. you'd notice a difference.

Mine are non-ti's

ok my ultra settings take me to 35-40 fps, memory is 930mb, and thats on one msi gtx560 @ stock settings. so im sure a sli 560 will help out.

Depends entirely on the games you're playing, even now days most games don't support sli/xfire.
Plus single cards don't have nearly as many issues.

Rumored 670 Ti Specs leaked...

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/rumored_gtx_670_ti_specifications_surface

Basically a 680 core with a few small things disabled. Price point is around $350 which is very appealing.
