Its gonna be eventually a dusty glass though since the fan is blowing without a filter so it might not look good after few months, no matter how clean the case and room is. Dust is inevitable.
So I might keep using my reference 680 (SLI in the future) and seized the extra performance in SLI.
Am i right about the glass?
You're absolutely correct about the glass....but that's kind of irrelevant because in most instances (except for cases that are designed for top-exhaust with GPUS) you're going to
A) not see the dust
B) whether or not the windows are glass or was just a plastic shroud, that area WILL accumulate dust regardless, and you'd want to regularly use compressed air to clean it out anyways.
So no, dust really shouldn't be a big deal. Like you said, it's bound to get dusty regardless.
