Hi I'm wondering which geforce gtx 680 should I get ??
There are plenty of evga/asus/zotac/giga/etc signature ftw etc versions

I have 500$ budget right now and I know good prices are finishing today on many websites
i'm buying on:

ncix
newegg
and such.

Which version is the best for my 500$ with shipping? I have right now 494$ exactly.

Thank you

I have personally not seen much of a visible difference in different versions of the same gpu and of the same manufacturer. these are merely marketing gimmicks to which we consumers fall prey to.

i would rather go for the model with the best cooling potential and oc it myself.

but a to be realistic enough, a 4-5 or even 10 fps increase is in no way visible to human eye unless you are getting less than 60 fps.

I can't think of a single valid reason to buy a 680 over a 670 for the price difference. The difference in performance is so small that its just silly to blow an extra $100 for something you'll never likely see except in a benchmark.I have two MSI 670 PE here my results with just one card My clocks/results on the 670 PE were:

Max OC
Core: 1316 MHz
Memory: 7406 MHz
Fps: 52.6

Standard OC
Core: 1290 MHz
Memory: 7204 Mhz
Fps: 51.5 if you insist on buying 680 go for Asus 680 TOP.
