Cheap 680 or new 770?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently I can get a 680 for £185 (now retail at around £350), which I thought was a good deal. However, now that the 770 has been released and I can get one for £330, I was thinking of getting one of those instead seeing as the 770 is superior to the 680 by quite a bit. The 680 is an old reference Asus model so the cooling isn't brilliant. Should I get the reference 680 now and maybe SLI it in the future or buy the 770?

How are you able to get it for £185? That price tells me that it's either used, or fake (meaning that the GTX 680 could be fake if it's not a used one).

If it is true you could get that GTX 680 for £185 I would take it over the GTX 770 £330, any day. GTX 770 is just a little tad faster VS a GTX 680. So I would not go as far to say the GTX 770 is superior VS GTX 680. Also, both have 2GB mem. Reference coolers for GTX 680 are quite good actually.

Sorry, forgot to mention it is used. Looks like I'll be going for the 680 then!
