But it's just hilarious how some own 680's and now want to upgrade to 670's because of stupid numbers it's honestly stupid if you look at the whole picture. Enjoy your 680 or 680's and go play some freaking video games. I realize this is overclock.net pursuit of performance aka overclocking, but it's turning into Overclock.net the pursuit of ignorance lol. If you want real performance keep ur 680's or 670's until real kepler comes out if you care that much about benchmark scores. One guy said he wants to sell his 690 now and get 2 670's lol don't know if the guy was being sarcastic or not.
Waits to be flammed lol.

I don't think any 680 owners selling for a 670 think it's an upgrade.
They're just doing it to gain $100.

I'm unsure of how the numbers work in USA, but here in Aus, a 690 retails for $1599, while two 670's cost just $1038.
Why would you think that's 'honestly stupid'? It just means they care more about money than the gain in performance. I'd never call someone stupid for being frugal.

And with the supply issues of the 680, even 2nd hand it's holding it's value extremely well.

Yes we all expected the 670 to be cheaper, but until recently, no-one knew it's performance.

I'll agree with you that anyone selling their 680 for a 670, thinking that it's a performance upgrade, is ignorant. But I'd like to think no-one is doing it for that reason smile.gif

Remember though, correlation does not imply causation. Their frugality didn't directly lead to their wealth, rather, their frugality was caused by various personality traits (such as being methodical, analytical, and cautious), and those are the same traits most wealthy people share.

Doubt it's going to be easy to sell a used gtx 680 for more than about $450 now that people have seen the 670 reviews today. Even at $450 the 680 breaks even price/performance with a 670. I could be wrong here, but i know i would rather buy a new 670 for $400 than a used 680 for $450.

But that isn't my point. Point was them seeing OP's benchmark score and seen it doing better then stock 680 so there screaming " OMG must upgrade" and i wasn't calling anyone stupid never said any names. I was mainly calling the whole idea stupid. A new card comes out that does better in benchmarks then the card you already own not to long bought so you wanna upgrade because it got 3-400points more. lol it's ignorant man weather you agree or not. It's just how i feel on the whole situation is all.
I still don't see whats wrong with saving $100 for pretty much no performance loss.
And just because someone buys a high end card does not mean money is no issue.

I just purchased this card today myself but I'm curious about something on this Gigabyte version of the 670 On the bottom where it shows the model number it looks like they used the 680 boards and they just stuck a sticker over the model number to sell them as a 670.

Example as to VR-Zones review here: http://assets.vr-zone.net/15831/P1050754.jpg

Wonder if this means that we might be able to flash the 680 bios over the 670 version and unlock the card (long shot I know but a man can hope)

Also long time lurker and first time poster here on Overclock.net. smile.gif

EDIT: Better picture
