Upgrading to a 670 or 680 wont be much of a great difference over 660TI. And 690 might give you a headache in the vram department in the future. So just wait for a 780 or preferably 790. I have my eyes on a 790 to be honest.
Meanwhile enjoy your 660. You are getting really good FPS if you ask me.
Though you might suffer in Crysis 3 or Far Cry 3 with highest settings.
I get like 30 fps with my 670 with Crysis 2 with the DX11 patch and high res texture pack. I can only imagime Crysis 3 to be even more demanding.
the GTX 690 is a rip-off... simply for all its power, it simply doesn't have enough Vram per GPU. sure, it has 4 GB, but it's really 2 GB per gpu, and some games on 1440p are eating up 2 GB already.
there needs to be a 6gb version IMO. wait, actually, ASUS makes a 8 GB version, the Mars III gpu. BUT that requires 3 8 pins, and i only have 2.
agree with you on seeing what Maxwell will bring.
