New, better monitors are forever.

I second this.
A good monitor will be with you until it dies(Years)
The 770 will be with you until the upgrade bug bites you again(probably a much shorter time)

Honestly? 8970. Just my opinion.

Say what you want about ATI/AMD and their past with drivers etc, but there are many more reasons to buy Radeons these days. Their drivers are great now. Another great reason being that the next generation of consoles all use AMD graphics chips. Better compatibility for one.

Basically, unless you're a physX/cuda user like I am, than it's a no brainer to buy Radeons. Especially if the leaked specs of the 8970 are true; that makes it as powerful as a titan at damn near half price.

Do AMD gfx cards support the nvidia lightboost tweak for limiting motion blur ?

I sold my 670 for $330, then bought a used 680 for $360. There's always a second hand market, just sell and buy as soon as you can to keep your cards value up.

If you don't want to spend any more money, sell or trade the 680 for an amd 7950 or 7970. You might even walk away with more cash in hand. Another plus is that 3gb amd cards might be better off for you considering you're going multi monitor. To get that 780, you're still going to spend at least another two or three hundred dollars.

In the future, keep an ear out for launch dates and deal accordingly. Good luck.

I agree with what this guy said about buying and selling as soon as you can to keep card value up. I have always had pretty good luck selling a card when its only a few months old and not losing much value. Also keeping/not using the original accessories, box, etc.helps immensely. It adds value to the card because it makes it appear closer to brand new or like new condition instead of just plain old "Used".
