Amazon.co.uk have plenty in stock aswell lol, actually we have plenty of stock compared to the usa for 680's.

Oh shoot, I guess I didn't mention that the ones that are in stock a bit too expensive for my liking. I ordered mine from amazon (a zotec) for £420, the ones in stock where close to £500 or up!

Scan related: There's a Zotec 680 in stock for £10 more, I may have to cancel my order from scan and buy that one. tongue.gif

About my Processor "exploding" with having to deal with SLI, I would probably have an ivy bridge processor upgrade long before I have anything to do with SLI. tongue.gif

Are you implying that you would have to upgrade earlier with a 670 than with a 680?
Seriously, just go and take a look at some of the official reviews. The 670 is mostly within 5-8% of the 680, sometimes theres just 2-3 frames between them. Except for a few occassions, the difference is literally close to null (i.e. close enough to NOT notice a difference between the two cards ingame).
Any game that won't run on the 670 will not run on the 680 too. If you'd have to upgrade from the 670, you'd have to do the same with a 680.
It's simple as that.

Whether the extra $$ is worth the minimal performance gain is down to the person. Personally I would go with the 670.

This whole thread is why I got a 7950 and overclocked the stink out of it. Have been gaming everything maxed locked at 60fps for a while now.

Good luck and have fun waiting....

rumor is that the 680 was going to be called the 670 ti, right?

Don't think so. But I see how close the clocks are so why there are called similar is understandable.

Grab a Gigabyte GeForce GTX670 Windforce it has great air cooling and appears to be a standard GTX680 PCB with 8+6 power and will be easy enough to water-cool with a 680 full cover block in the future if required.

OCUK have them in stock @ £365 or Ebuyer @ £339 promising stock in a few days.
