The 680 is a great card, but it doesn't negate the 7970.

It looks great! I'm going to wait until the end of the year. If it looks like nothing else is going to drop from nVidia, I'll buy a custom 680 from Asus or MSI.

Each to their own.

I wouldnt worry though if like Zero, I had a 7970....I think it would be more of thing for ppl like me on the fence ..who have 580 or older gen cards

I only read the TechPowerUp review (they have very good resolution comparisons) and overall, this looks like a very good card. My 590 is still faster at 1920x1200 (what I game at), but if I was in the market, I'd be doing a happy dance for sure. It looks like nVidia really packed everything they could into Kepler. Now if AMD drops the 7970 down to $425-450...... good times.
