I say an easy 7-8 out of 10.... mainly on the benching side only though, I really wish I had unlocked voltage for my benhcing fun. but for gaming 10/10 couldn't be happier with it. thumb.gif

I'm just looking for the best gaming card, I don't plan to bench really.

for the price your getting it for and the multi monitor setup in the future with the dual gpu needs. get the nvidia cards now while you can, I bet those 700 cards wont come out until late June or mid july, everything comes out for a company around that time, mid year time is the bread and butter to get investors and crank up the stock prices and make people love you. quit waiting.

I actually heard it's going to be coming out in Q3/Q4 this year. Also, how's the overclockability of the 680? Does it degrade like many people make it seem like?

no that's a lie. I have been getting better at OC'ing my card lately actually I think the drivers are making this thing really start to shine, I just need another franky to come back to life and let me try them out to the fullest really. rolleyes.gif I can get 1,270 / 3,402 MHz on my 680. different values I know but it's how they work.

Okay, thanks a lot! tongue.gif +rep. I really don't want to get another card that will degrade almost instantly. I just looked at the 670 as an option but I can't stand giving up more of the CUDA cores. tongue.gif Not that they do too much either. wink.gif

...you might be right about the drivers (I'm using 313.96)...and I also got all three 670ies clocked to 3402 on VRAM (6804 effective), and 3 GPUs between 1240 and 1320

...another thing to consider is stock power usage. 670 = 144w, 680= 175w and 7970 is around 250w to 280w according to Anandtech...then again, I'm running 150% power target:D ...when you have two or three cards going, this can make a noticeable difference every month. mad.gif

Those new 3dmark suits seem to favor nvidia in some ways...
I still insist on the 7970, Swag's running three 1440p screens. That's AMD's realm really, there's no contest performance wise.
The memory bandwidth is limited and the rop's limit the kepler's even more for that kind of screen real estate.
Costs less, performs better, no prob with 2x gpu's in crossfire either, you can overclock further and it WILL make a difference. tongue.gif

I had my gpu as far as 1400mhz core and 7800mhz ram effective yet still it got beaten badly at 3dm11 and heaven. For the same kind of money I could have gotten a reference 7970 (got my 670 ftw for 325 + 35 shipping) and it would have been much better.
Plenty of Nvidia fanbois here xD jk jk

EDIT: Valgaur, you might wanna check the top vantage scores at the bot...all 7970's and a few 580's! yep, real high end designs, built for overclockers. thumb.gif

I won't touch an AMD card again for eyefinity.... I am daily having at least two Displayport disconnects since I updated to 13.2.

Meaning that the eyefinity connection drops and I go down to 1024x800 resolution and I must shutdown (not only restart) the PC to get that screen back.

Going Nvidia soon for the oh glorious stable DVI ports.
