    Can I add you on steam or something? Would like to ask you some questions on your rig, I was going to post about any one running this card but this might be better.

    Well if the 770 is cheaper than the currant 680 and your in the market for one it would be daft not to get the 770.

    On that thinking though you'd find your self back in the 670/680 scenario but with the 770/760ti/670 when you can get ~95% of the perf from a part ~£100 cheaper.

    They definitely will for the 770 given it is a simple overclock and rebadge of the 680

    I think Nvidia are going to have a hard time with the 7xx series now there are sub £200 7950's with decent included games and hints that the 7970 will drop to under £250.

    Will be interesting to see how this goes.

    Don't think the interest is there for the 600+1 or 700 series.
    Nothing new to see only a mini or poormans Titan.

    Found a great deal on the 7950. Is it a big enough upgrade on the 480 for 1440p? Or should I wait for the new 7 series? I suspect nvidia price gouging though :(

    If you lower your AA settings the 7950 is a great card for 1440p. Tbh for under £200 you will not get a better card.

    The phrase too little too late comes to mind, Nvidia should have aimed 6xx to destroy 7xxx not just beat it slightly, that way when AMD sorted out the drivers and got performance boosts 7xxx wouldn't have pulled away from 6xx (of course the is the possibility AMD set that scenario up deliberately, but id rather blame Nvidia :p).

    It would be so funny if Sapphire/Gigabyte or somebody released a HD7950-X2 and annihilated the GTX780 in price performance :p I miss the days of the GT6600-3D1/HD3850-X2/HD4850-X2.

    I just cannot see anyone with any sense paying top price for a rebranded 680 and a cut down Titan. I think Nvidia have shot themselves in the foot for all but the die hard fans tbh.

    A 7950 for under £200 with a decent games package is going to be the best option until the real next gen comes along.

    I prefer Titan LE ;) , but I agree the rest is pointless for 670 / 680 users.

    Being poor ;) i'm hoping to get a nice boost from the only GK110 I can justify (780).:)

    Titan LE, Titan SE, Titan XT, Titan MX, GTX 685, whatever they call it :p would be funny if it clocked like a beast and could actually match Titan (I know it prob wont happen).

    Very tempted for £200. Don't like the gigabyte cooler design though. Loads of fans just look silly.

    May just hang on to see the prices on the 7xx series first.

    Agreed I am one of those diehard fan boys & truth be told I'm totally disgusted at what nvidia have done. Selling the 680 short in terms of performance & low memory bus + vram 680/GK104 really is a mid - high end card. Rebranding the 680 as 770 with a slight boost, all the while milking their diehard fan boys.

    Don’t get me wrong there is nothing my 680 can’t handle game wise @ 1080 but the whole deception & marketing of a top of the range "680" card when it’s really not is something I cannot forgive "that’s my personal opinion"

    Nvidia have had this whole scenario planned for well over a year now! I'm voting with my feet & making the move back to ATi 8/9 series when they become available.

    Look harder Matt, found some ref cards circa £200 but no lower.
