I'm in the market for a new card now, and since we aren't going to see anything life changing for some time now, I've settled on picking up a top single GPU to keep me going for the foreseeable. Right now, the cheapest 680 on Scan is £360, whereas the vanilla 7970s start at £296. The cheapest GHz edition is still well under the price of the 680 (I wouldn't bother with a GHz edition anyway as the original can be clocked just as high). SLI/Xfire might happen in a year or so if and when it's needed. So why the hell would I buy a new 680 right now? All the benchies I've seen across the net point to the 7970 being pretty much on a par or exceeding it performance wise. The only real benefit is power consumption. Which have you got/would you get and why? If you can recommend a particular card as well then all the better. I might just end up getting another 670 on a 680 PCB and overclock it to 680 speeds anyway, I loved that card so much.
