well the problem is we don't have a date some rumors say fall all the way till spring next year!.....20nm is a drastic jump
i had a 680 and returned it to wait 1 month for the 770..turned out my Lightning 770 gets here tomorrow ..so i almost waited 2 months! .....saved 125$ but waited 2 months ! to be honest i kind of regret it !
imagine waiting 6+ months! thats a LONG time on technology....what if they do spring then he almost waited a year for a upgrade and thats a entire upgrade cycle !
trying to beat technology can be a problem....i personally got a lightning cause of their resale value and the way they are thought after....in 1 year i might jump in Volcanic Islands train
there is rumors of maxwell coming out spring 2014 too....so its a waiting game for everyone on either side!
id say pull the trigger now.... 7950,7970,770 or the 760ti (670) for the 275-300$ thats rumored to come out at (computex started today and im sure you can wait 3 days to see whats up)! to me if the 760ti comes out at 275-300 will be hard to beat!
either way you wont beat technology so make a decision and enjoy it ...either way you go (green or red) they have SOLID choices on both sides!
