i was originally holding out for 680's to come back in stock, but i am tired of waiting. so i decided to pull the trigger. anybody else decided to get themselves in on the action? can't wait till it gets here, now just to decide on a new monitor to go with it.

i wen't with evga and plan to step up if i am not happy with the results of the 670. i just couldn't take the waiting any longer. i am not a very patient person when it comes to new gadgets to play with, it drives the wife nuts.

a gtx 680/670 isnt massively better than my gtx 570, but a gtx 685 is considerably better than gtx 680 so worth it in my opinion. A gtx 570 upgrade to gtx 680 isnt worth what they cost here in UK (£400+)

How do you know? I thought nothing was known about the 685 except some specs, and even if transistors are doubled, most of the added ones are supposed to go to improving compute performance.

I ordered my EVGA stock model at lunch yesterday. Arrives monday. Plan to watercool it, so it will be awhile before it gets installed (no blocks yet) - waah!
Really hoping it cuts down on the superheating of my room by my GTX 480 (no AC here and summer is coming).
