If you look at benchmarks. The GTX 670 is only shy of the 680 by about 5FPS average. That difference is not worth $100 if you could care less about benchmarks and more focused on more bang for your buck. Also looking at how well the Gigabyte 670 over clocks, you could nearly par with the 680 and save $100. Not to mention it would probably run more silent and cooler.

I just purchased a 670 yesterday over the 680 because I've rationalized how much a waste it is to me to spend $100 more for minimal gain.

Proportionally speaking, the 670 is 95% the power of a 680 but 80% the cost of a 680. So you're getting 15% better performance respectively for absolutely FREE.

Ah great! smile.gif
I think i'll go for the GTX 670 then.

Also how is it with warrantys and overclocking? Will they be able to notice it if something was to break by other means then the overclock itself? Or would i be lost in that case.

I wouldn't bother OCing this card if you're not familiar with OCing. It has great performance out of the box and you're within warranty because you didn't OC the card, they did.

Something this good doesn't need to be messed with, I would leave it that way unless you're willing to accept the consequences if something goes wrong.

OCing voids the warranty?!

Theres no consequence to OCing these cards. Pretty much any card for that matter if you OC in software. But especially these with no voltage control. Fell free to push the cards to it's limits. There is no way to "burn it up" or anything like that. And if something did happen then the card is defective. Regardless of OC or not.

Here is as close as I could get. This is with a GTX 680 that wasn't a great OC'er and maxed out at 1189MHz on the core. It is still faster than my GTX 670 even at 1323MHz core in 3dMark11

GTX 680 1189 Core:

700


GTX 670 1323 Core:

Okay so it should be safe to OC this card with something like MSI Afterburn?

Thanks a lot man. From reviews I have seen it seems to boil down to about 5 fps. Which in real life would never be noticed. But its good to see a comparison on one system. Because 3dmark varies quite a bit rig to rig.

Yes thats what I use. You will see a voltage slider but it will do nothing.

But you can raise the power limit. Which you will want to do.
