while the 7900 series are good cards, the 670/680 do beat them in the majority of resolutions in the majority of games.
All said and done the 680 / 670 will not win against the HD 7970 / HD 7950 when all cards are overclocked. At best they trade blows. But if you want to avoid the OC topic then thats fine.

at this point the 600 series is handing it to the 7900 series overall.
Anyway I have spoken to users who have used both HD 7970 and GTX 680 OC'd and their opinion is different from yours. You can be happy with your conclusion.
