    bit more details.
    budget/any plans for multi monitor setup/all ultra/120 or 60Hz/overclocking?
    if a 680 check out for either an MSI lightning or ZOTAC AMP card.

    well budget differs in 1 case if i pay more for card i might lower storage space and less picky on the case
    i would love to try mutli monitor setup no xp though with that
    and ofc i would go all ultra and no OCing
    as for MSI or zotac where i live they are rare mostly i can go EVGA , Asus to be safe ( incase of bad card i can just get a new 1 right away)

    i would try to get my hands on them if they are better but as for the reviews its a close race between the SC sig edition and what i linked before didnt look up the classified version due to lack of info

    where are you from/what sites do you have acces to if i might ask?
    also classified cards are pretty much what their name implies. In general those are top binned cards with very high oc potential.(they look like stock coolers but are actually quite more advanced/better)
    also other details on your rig perhaps?

    There are DCII GTX 680's with 2-slot cooling. Pretty cool chip so don't know why they even made a triple slot.

    I would honestly get a GTX 670 over a 680. The price to performance between the two isn't worth it at all to me. In most benchmarks I saw when I ordered mine, the FPS difference was like 2-5 in most games. I went SLI since I have a 1440p monitor and I don't regret getting my EVGA FTW cards because they have the full PCB the 680 has along with better cooling from the large back vents and better fan.

    680 just isn't worth it to me, but if having the very best no matter the cost is important to you, then go with it.

    the middle-east, warranty might be an issue with some brands so i might choose what is safer for me because overseas will take a long time
