I just didn't know if the 680 was better or not, that's why I asked.
Thanks for the info all
What do you run as your gaming OC? If you got a poor 7970, and want to take a stab at getting a good 680 Lightning, you'd be in great shape if you did, as it takes a lot of voltage to warm these guys up.
And as for Far Cry 3, it seems like a large portion of the problems people report having in the FC3 performance thread are posted by AMD users. Many also say, even if not having major problems, that it's quite choppy most of the time. Even though it's a Gaming Evolved title, Nvidia cards seem to be doing much better at the moment, but that's not to say that it won't be fixed by a future driver. Just saying at the moment that it seems to be running way better on Kepler.
But, I don't think it'd be worth getting a 680 just to see a slight improvement in one game. So unless you can get a great price for your 7970 and find a cheap 680L on sale on Newegg, or you really
want the best Far Cry 3 experience, I'd stick with the 7970. Can't go too wrong either way though
