The itch to upgrade has been getting to me lately and I've been looking at new GPU's as possible upgrades from my SLI 680's which are still doing well in games at the moment. I know there would be an obvious performance boost going to a new generation of GPU's but would it be better to just wait for the 800 series instead?

If the 800 series is a die-shrink, wait.

Would you be getting SLI 780tis? Because unless you need the ram I doubt a single 780ti would beat out SLI 680s. At stock, a pair of 680s is about 15% faster than a Titan which is what the 780ti seems to be, just with higher stock clocks. If your 680s are OCd then they'll probably still be 10-20% faster, depending on how far you can push them and how far the 780ti will be able to be pushed.

If you're wanting 780ti SLI though it will be a pretty substantial upgrade, but personally I'd wait for the 800 series at least, if not 900.

The 780Ti sounds great and I'm dying to replace these 560Ti SLI despite how great they work but from all the rumors going around about the 800 series I just gotta wait for the GTX 880.

Yeah they're both OC'd to around 1,250 on the core and the memory is OC'd to 6,500 mhz effective. I'll wait until the 780 Ti comes out and then take a look at benchmarks before I jump the gun too early about it. Thanks.

You have SLI 680s? Wait, unless you've recently upgraded to a 1440p monitor and your 680's are 2GB, there's no point.

800 series

Nothing really on the market to push your 2 680s except a couple of games.

Most new architectures that are released have significant improvements. Hopefully, Nvidia keeps it that way with the Maxwell architecture.
