Need a recommendation on that. Need a GPU solely for BOINC and folding. I read couple of reviews when Kepler came out . In these reviews it was stated that Kepler's computing performance is pathetic (several times worse than GTX580) and this was a compremise from Nvidia to increase gaming performance, more like a trade-off..

Kepler is *NOT* the GPGPU wonder that nVidia announced!

Nvidia cripples GPGPU in Geforce GTX 680

AMD Radeon HD 7970 Much Better Than Kepler in OpenCL

How is the situation in folding and crunching front? Is the Kepler architecture really bad at computing? If I get a GTX580 would it outperform GTX680 in Seti@Home or in Grid? Because if so, then I'll get one.

Thanks in advance.
