the D-DVI is a valid point thank's for letting me know.

ASUS ROG MATRIX 7970-P-3GD5 (Factory OC'd) would cost me USD $550

and

the ASUS ROG MATRIX 7970-3GD5 would set me for USD $520

The Sapphire Vapor-X 7970 GHz Edition is currently $439.99 at Newegg, you would be silly not to take it at that price to be honest.

You keep posting benches of higher resolutions with 2GB 680's , apparently they are beaten by the 3GB 7970 due to their 2GB of memory , in the event of a 4GB 680 i believe the 7970 will get stomped

No... 4GB 680s barely perform better than their 2GB counterparts due to their memory interface limitations. The 7970 GHz edition is faster than both the 2GB and 4GB 680 overall, it's not up for debate.
