Sure, here you go:
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/01/14/asus_geforce_gtx_670_directcu_ii_4gb_sli_review/
No matter what they tried, the 4gb cards were not worth the extra money.

Triple 1440p in surround means two or three 670 or 680s. Wait a day and see if dual Titans can do the job. Who cares if you spend more on the GPUs than on the whole rest of the system, right?

I really can't afford $900 on a single GPU right now. I really only plan to play CS:S and CS:GO and maybe a bit of LoL. Other than that, I don't have too much gaming needs on PC so I don't see a point in dropping $900 on a GPU. I was just thinking when will the normal 700-series line be coming out to see if I should just wait for that instead of jumping on the $400 680. tongue.gif

4k video will likely change the VRAM calculation anyhow as it will double requirements (mind you, most 2 GB cards would still be ok even then depending on resolutions)...current GTX series can apparently not run 4 K, but a future BIOS update might change that...Titan can run 4K right out of the box.

Then the Titan and 690 are out, as well as SLI, so single monitor gaming is what you can do. Unless you want to turn down all the settings for a single 680 to try to handle three monitors at 1440p. How can you get such a good deal on a 680?

I'll probably upgrade by the time 4k becomes the common. I mean, the 4k TV going on sale is around $30,000! I can't afford that. tongue.gif I'll stick to my beautiful 1440p monitors for now!

Well it's $460 on sale + dad's friend works at MC so an extra deal + a gift card still laying around from Christmas. I still have about $150 in gift cards alone! thumb.gif

So I just heard that 700-series that has the GPU that will succeed the 680 will be out Q3/Q4 of this year, so shouldn't I just jump on this great deal?

Don't be a sissy and play single monitor with less resolution (1080p or maybe even 720p)
Wait and see what the fuss is all about regarding titan (two more days or so)
I would get a 7970/50 or two for your rig. Similar cost to a 680 if not a few bucks more. I'd play single monitor really and use a single top of the line gpu. Nvidia is totally castrated for oc, and is beaten by amd's offerings anyways.

Just get a 7870, 7950, 660ti with a good game bundle and even those are more than enough for the games mentioned. You could go weaker but those 1440p monitors are a lot of pixels!

I wouldn't mind playing with a single monitor. Most of the time, I only play on my middle monitor anyways, it gives me more of a direct feeling in the game vs surround! I was thinking of the 7970 and it is still on my list. I will weigh my options tomorrow when I go to the store. I want to see which one I can get for cheaper!
