Any Advice would be nice guys.
670 and 680 are damn near identical in most games.
Stock vs Non-Reference design doesn't really change a whole lot. Bit of clock speed, perhaps some more ram in some instances, quieter fans, but that's about it.
Asus DCII TOP vs MSI Lightning is pretty much identical until you get into overclocking. Even then, the TOP actually has better overclocking at the moment due to easier hard modding. hopefully
that will all change with a new afterburner release, which will unlock the lightning and blow everything else out of the water when overclocking, but that hasn't come yet.

They use to have great perks and now you have to pay for them all and the lifetime warranty is out of the window for these new cards. I also didn't want to drop 750.00 + dollars on a single card with no back plate & 55& max fan speed that's just plain crazy.
100% agreed... well maybe 90%. Evga never really had anything great going on. Most innovative thing they ever did was overpriced back plates. It was ok though cause in general their stuff was decent and well priced with a good warranty. Now it's just silly.
