Re: Radeon HD 7000 series price drop
680's are now more than $100 more than 7970's here because of price gouging due to low availablity and high demand. At these prices the 7970 is the better deal hands down, any weakness it has compared to the 680 really isn't that large and having more VRAM is more important than slightly lower power use/heat. On top of that the OC editions with great cooling and more comparable performance to the 680 are still priced significantly lower than the 680's here.
