So it turns out that, just as I'm being nagged by my missus that I can't think of anything I want for my birthday or Christmas, the GTX680 has had a massive price drop down to £240 at Scan & Overclockers, which would be an excellent upgrade from my crossfired 5770s (don't do Crossfire, seriously, PITA) and be all the upgrade my PC needs for another 4 years.
However, one of the features in Catalyst Control Center I really love is that I can have presets for my display arrangement and tie them to keyboard shortcuts - so I have Ctrl+Alt+1 to just use my monitor, Ctrl+Alt+2 to enable the TV and set it as primary (with the monitor as secondary) and Ctrl+Alt+3 to enable the TV as secondary. Whilst there are other features in the nVidia feature set I'd like (automated settings for games!) I will really miss this. Is there an equivalent in the nVivida Control Panel, or another way of managing a similar effect without CCC?
Well now that mine is safely ordered, I'll share the link so others can enjoy the deliciously cheap half-price-from-launch cards: FREE DELIVERY Asus GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II OC NVIDIA Graphics Card - 2GB - GTX680-DC2O-2GD5 - Scan.co.uk
I would have preferred the 7970 to an extent, but the cheapest I could find a decent one (i.e. decent aftermarket cooler) was £300 for a Vapor-X model, and the 7970 isn't worth a 25% premium, sadly.
So: any one have an answer to my first post?
