Indeed, side grade - but at least I would have two new cards.
I don't know really - I'll have to see - I'll be on the lookout for a GTX680.
Going to have to try and see how to return this piece of junk....

680-->760 is a downgrade... 760 had considerably less cores.

Its true that it is a downgrade but not by much Anandtech 680 vs 760.

760 and 770 have higher factory clocks. If you're overclocking, 680 takes a solid (think >20%) lead in stuff like Unigine Heaven and a ton of games.

I've seen ~52fps on my 770 vs ~40 on a 760 (1.3x) at similar clocks out of the box on extreme preset bench, but a reference 680 without GPU boost 2.0 might be clocked very low.

well it's more to do with the extra bandwidth the newer gens provide.

Gtx760 has 6ghz VRAM.

gtx680 has 6ghz VRAM

gtx770 is a gtx680 with gpu-boost 2.0, higher factory clocks and 7ghz VRAM


Believe me the VRAM does not impact benches all that much. 680 and 770 bench really close (i've seen some better overclocking 680's beat some of my 770 scores..) and 760 falls far behind both if they're at similar clocks

770 is a 680 with different VRAM which sometimes helps and sometimes does not, meanwhile the 760 is not really new gen - it does not have faster memory or anything, it is literally just a different configuration of gk104:

660ti has 1 of the 8 SMX disabled, as well as 1/4 of the memory bus and ROP's disabled (1344 core, less memory bandwidth than 680)
760 has 2 of the 8 SMX disabled, but intact memory bus (1152 core, same memory bandwidth as 680)
670 has 1 of the 8 SMX disabled, but intact memory bus (1344 core, same memory bandwidth as 680)
680 has all 8 smx, so 1536 core (1.33x that of the 760)

etc
