    When the 780 comes out your not going to be able to get it right away anyways. Look at the history of top end GPU's they sell out the second they get released and I suspect that the same will happen to the 780 just like the 680.

    Doesn't matter. The 680s are going down in price, the 780s will deliver 15-25% more performance. Wait 1-2 months..

    Neither. 670 is $100 cheaper but only 5% slower.

    Or wait few months if Nvidia releases 700 series.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    Is this true? I thought the 700 series and 8000 series were both delayed until June or so.

    They might be delayed until Q4 if the latest rumors are correct, June is still a possibility but not 1-2 months.

    So is it worth waiting the whole year to get a 680 or should I just get one now?

    If you feel like you need an upgrade I would get it now.

    If you're buying now I would follow the recommendation from vesseblah and I. If you absolutely want a 680 then I'd pick the MSI from the two you linked.
