I think we ought to attach this thread to the 'IT staff are underpaid one'.
These new Geforce cards are sounding really nice. Not tempted yet as the only games I'm playing on PC at the moment (Warcraft and Diablo 3) seem to run OK on my current GTX470 but it's good to see Nvidia making improvements in performance and power consumption.
On a side note what's with the GTX 690 pricing! I mean it's more than TWICE the price of the GTX680 How does that work when it's basically 2 680's on the same card. Surely it should be more around the £600 figure in line with the old GTX 590?

Maybe so but we have to get what we enjoy or there's no pointI think we ought to attach this thread to the 'IT staff are underpaid one'.
Not sure how much truth there is in this Why can’t Nvidia supply Kepler/GK104/GTX680? | SemiAccurate
Reviews are up: Nvidia's GeForce GTX 670 graphics card - The Tech Report - Page 1
AnandTech - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Review Feat. EVGA: Bringing GK104 Down To $400
From what I've briefly gleaned from conclusion pages (so that this post had some meat to it), it's remarkably close to the 680 in performance at about £100 cheaper, and a good competitor for the 7970 let alone the 7950 it's pitched against.
Looking like a Green Generation this time round, isn't it?
670 on the way to me
By all accounts i'd bin that order and get a 670, from all the reviews the 670 is just slighty behind and in some cases so similar at about 100 quid less than a 680.
670 in my hands, roll on home time so I can install it!
Just having a look on ebuyer at the 670s, anyone know whats different in each one?
Not worth getting any that are promising to be overclocked either because of the way the GPU Boost works now with nVidia - see the Anandtech review I linked above.
I was a bit jammy with my 670, sad old me was F5ing the site until they went live, cheapest one they had was the EVGA 670 SC at £312 so added it to basket and order went through - 10 mins later the price jumped to 353
