I almost always keep them at stock since it doesn't matter at this point until Nvidia fixes their scaling. I'm seriously contemplating selling all 4 of my 680s and buying a 4th 7970 at this point, due to the price discrepancy and the TINY difference in performance.
When I compared my 3dmark11 scores with my 3930k @ 4.6ghz for 3 680s vs 3 7970s, the scores were less than 400 points apart. Now that the prices have dropped as far as they have with the 7970s, I don't view the extra money for the 680s to be worth it. Less VRAM, less compute power, and similar performance to the 680s.
What about micro-stutter though? Due to the CF serial bridge, I wouldn't recommend more than 2-way. Especially being able to hook a monitor up to its own RAMDAC for a triple monitor setup with SLI.Edited by PoopaScoopa - 4/24/12 at 6:27pm
