Stock is really not an issue here in Israel.
Both cards are all over the stores here, not many can afford them.

This thread, many people are switching from 7970's to 680s. There are ALOT of problems with the dirvers atm. As you can see that person has both cards and can attest to the fact that the 680 is much better and stable atm. Go with the 680!

Hmm, i just checked some stores.
The 7970 is 110$ ( !!!!! ) cheaper then the 680 here in Israel.
Which make me re consider the 7970 again
110$ is a lot of money for almost same performance
And also the 7970 OC better and mine will be under water (i got the XSPC universal block, hopefully it will fit the card)

Yeah definitely go the 7970 then, 680 has no voltage control and will not benefit as much from water than the 7970 will. Along with the fact that 7970s are $110 cheaper...

Good luck thumb.gif

At $110 cheaper it would be silly to go with the 680 tongue.gif Definatley get the 7970 and put it under water thumb.gif

I got the 680 2GB and it is amazing, overkill for my resolution of 1600x900(Lol) but trust me I have seen a lot of benchmarks, reviews and tons of other stuff and I conclude that the 680 is faster, more features and better driver support and cheaper.

Well, I think its only about 5% faster at stock clock but the 7970 can OC much higher.
Drivers i believe will improve.

Physx is not really a feature for me because i can count on one hand the games that actually support it (which i didn't played any of them)
Cuda is the only one that worth notice for me because i do edit videos a bit... and i know some programs need it to work.

And about the price, the 680 cost 110$ more then the Sapphire 7970 over here
And that's a lot to pay for such features.

Don't get me wrong, i will totally go for the 680 if the price was the same or max 30$ higher.

To be fair, all I really like is the fact your using a 16:10 monitor, and not falling for this stupid 16:9 tv resolution garbage. Whichever card you choose, the sheer joy of that CORRECT aspect ratio will be the biggest reward smile.gif.

I love the ress and aspect ratio.
