570 to 680, hmm, not worth it IMO, you will see very little difference @ 1920x1200 and below, a few fps here and there if you are a 'gamer', but MO, your not? So why bother lol?
The 'superclocked' and 'OC' versions are a waste of money also, as your better off saving the cash and clocking them yourself. The pre-clocked versions have very little headroom for clocking further, as they are near the max out of the box, best off sticking with a reference card.
I was gonna upgrade my 580, but the cost for gain is just not worth it. I suppose if I sold my 580 and got a decent price, then maybe the price difference may be worth it. But I just cant be assed with that noncense. It runs all I need ATM and never struggles with any game on the present market.
The new Nvidia cards are coming early in 2013, now thats a different story I would recommend waiting to see what they bring to the table

Ahh to have money lol Go get urself a prossie for a lot cheaper m8. Next week, get another, as she will be just as 'new around the corner', then save the extra on takin your wife out for a nice meal, or two. Maybe then will the 680 have dropped in price so much, that you will want a 780
Scara returns to jail, and tells them to keep that turd regardless.

Totally agree with Scara on this. My Zotac 560ti was standard core and memory instead of the OC or AMP versions but it runs @ 920 core and 2150 memory absolutely fine on stock cooling. For a $200 U.S. card, it runs just about every game maxed out at better clocks than the factory OC'd ones, at least according to most online benchmarks. Caveat being that I always turn shadows down on just about every game; biggest frame waste in the world imho. Darth (Enip) and I like to record our BF3 gameplay for montages and with everything except for shadows on Ultra, 2xMSAA, HBAO, it records at a steady 50 frames/second. When not recording it's ~ 80 frames. The 680 (* only from what I've read) gets similar numbers but with shadows on Ultra. Maybe it'd hit over 100 with shadows turned down but for almost $380 more compared to a 560ti IDK why anyone would want it. Perhaps for the 2048Gb textures on something like Skyrim because of the extra VRAM?
