580's when OC'd would destroy the 680 but you need a powerful Powersupply,

Of course 1 680 now is more future proof (you could get one later)

Do you have the power ?

850 minimum IMO, some have ran them on a 750, but that is close to the edge, especially for lightnings

I have 2x 1.5 GB lightning, there is nothing they can't destroy

Even does the new Dawn demo smooth as silk, my buddies 670 chugs through it

but if you do not haver the power it makes sence to roll with the 680

be prepaired to deal with serious case heat using lighnings, have to have a high flow case to get away with it

Gentlemen,

If someone in the nVidia forum asks about a specific selection of nVidia choices, please do not interject the opinion that they should buy an AMD card instead.

Thank you thumb.gif

To answer the OP's question, personally I'd rather have the 680 at $400.

We are all here just to try to help people get the best, fastest, and nicest computer parts that we can. And at this high of resolutions the AMD's pull ahead. If there was a better option that was Nvidia we would completely recommend it, but unfortunately Nvidia is not as good in this department. So sorry if we are trying to be helpful.
And I do believe that I said to get the GTX 680 if he had to choose between the two.
PS: sorry for talking back, all hail the admins wink.gif
