Yes, maybe, man I really don't know which I would choose if I were buying one today.

670 can easily be overclocked to excel past the 680 in performance

Nope. 92% of the performance for 80% of the cost.

This would only be valid if the 680 couldn't be overclocked. Most cards can be overclocked to on par or better than the stock version of the model above them when exclude the flagship models.

It's worth it if you want the best! Performance/price ratio the 8 will almost never be worth it over the 7. The 680 is for those who absolutely want the best. It's more worthwhile for gaming than say a 2600k is over a 2500k.

The Asus DCUII TOP Edition actually performs about 1% better than the 680, for a cheaper price.

Because it comes factory overclocked. Read my prior post.

Youd have to say you had a 670 though if you didn't get the 680...
