Shows that the 680 beats it, while performance is comparable, its still not as good as.

but also as cheap as possible. If i don't need it, i don't want it,

Taken from the op, you do not need a 680 and getting one is just wasting money, don't ask for advice if you are just going to ignore it

Dude, the performance difference between the 670 and 680 is not massive my any means. The 670 is a smart purchase.

Yeh, look back at the benchmarks - on 1 screen at 1080p, the 670 gets pretty much over 60fps on every game, so there wont be any difference between the 670 and the 680. The only games that dont are the games that are coded poorly in the first place and so will always be a bitch with FPS.

I really want to trust your opinions and its the reason i'm here. But in the back of my mind i have this burning sensation saying to ignore you and take the 680!

I know your right, but i can't help but feeling in the long run I'd be always regretting i didn't get the 680.

Thing is the 680 4gb comes in under my budget with the spec i listed, so technically i could afford it, its just a case of is it the right choice.

No, listen to us, because we're amazing.

Also, look at the clock speeds of the 670 and 680. If you overclock the 670 to the same clock speed as the 680, it actually performs better, so just overclock it, and you have better performance
