I wen't with the GTX 680 my self. In reviews the GTX 680 beats that card except when your using 3 monitors with a high resolution.

My System Specs


If you are just gameing on one monitor then the GTX-680 is better,I still think the GTX-670 is the best deal and go SLI then it is really good.But if you are going to run two or more monitors on just one card then the extra memory comes in to play.
