And with Haswell due for launch in April 2013 getting a full upgrade is not a good investment. Haswell is a major improvement over sandy and ivy. newer instructions sets like AVX2, FMA3, bit manipulation instructions. improved IPC of around 10 - 15% . better power managament.

Wow - I'll have to have a thorough read through this article. Maybe I will wait for Haswell and grab one of those 680's instead in the mean time.

For price perf with Nvidia cards GTX 670 is the best. Get a nice factory overclocked GTX 670 like the Gigabyte GTX 670 OC.

I saw that, but they have the Zotac 680 on special, for only $50 more. Probably worth it.

For 1920x1200? At this time? The 670 is plenty. For future proofness and general awesome factor... Dat 680. biggrin.gifapplaud.gif

Exactly. For $50 more it was definitely worth it. It's on sale at the moment at a really good price (the Zotac one).

Ordered one of these to go with it: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_878_880&products_id=21304

Selling my 570 if anyone is interested: http://www.overclock.net/t/1321614/kfa-galaxy-gtx-570-reference-ek-full-cover-waterblock-backplate
