I been out of the loop as far as HW goes that I let a new video card slip right past me. For shame.
Anyways....whats the scoop on this thing? Is it a worthwhile purchase over a 680? Seems to be fairly priced.

It's a tad slower than the Titan, not by much though.

Not sure if I would bother upgrading from a 680 though.

You still seem to be lacking a SSD, money is better spent there :P

You guys still have time to play games nowadays? I haven't started a new game in a long long time. Although I'm waiting for the price of metro last light to go down. Totally agree with jdrom, a ssd is one of the best things you can do to a pc.

I agree with the both of yas about the SSD. I really need to get one.
But look at this thing, it has Comixion written all over it. :(

Im thinking about the 770. But i cant decide between the 2gb or 4gb version. Is resolution the only benefit to more ram? Or should I get it for high demanding games like Metro and Crysis to name a couple.
Dont wait for the translation....answer me now!

Why is the SC (2nd one) priced less than the 3rd one with slower clocks?

The ACX one is likely the best bet.
