    Nobody knows, beside what you pointed out. The 690 will be announced soon and the 7990 too. As for the GTX 670 TI, they should be crippled GTX 680, so if they are not too expensive they should be a great buy for the hardcore gamer. They are probably stocking them right now, each one that doesn't meet the 680 standards will be rebranded as a 670 TI, when they'll have enough they will announce it. I predict they will be out in May, but when exactly I have no clue.

    These are all very powerdul cards, I doubt there will be many people upgrading to these, specifically for diablo 3.

    Witcher 2 with the new High Res pack should be pretty neat.

    I am on the fence about a card for the build I am planning. I have been considering a GTX 580, but a 680 would be tits. Definitely overkill for D3, but would help if I ever wanted to get into a more demanding game. You mention something I did not know about what the "ti" means. So, for example, a GeForce 560ti is a card that didn't spec out enough for a 570?

    It's not a particularity of the TI nomenclature, it just happens to be the case for that model (670 TI). The same concept applies for example on the Radeon 6970 where some shaders are defect and therefore they disable them (and more) and tweak some other settings like memory / GPU frenquency + voltages and they create a new product, the Radeon 6950. That's why you can flash the bios on those models and re-enable the disabled shaders, if you are lucky in the draw, you can end up with a 6950 that performs pretty much the same as the 6970.

    A similar concept exists with the CPU (it's called "binning"). For example, an i5 Sandy Brige CPU that doesn't meet the 2500 (@ 3.3Ghz) requirements could be sold as an i5 2300 (@ 2.8Ghz). That's why, again if you are lucky on the draw, you can end up with a 2300 that overclocks almost as much as one 2500, because it was very close to meet the requirements.

    I see what your saying. I am learning a whole lot more since I have been looking at parts and trying to figure out what will work together. I knew a little about computers before, but since this building one idea came up, I realized I was pretty ignorant of alot of things computerwise!

    I wonder what the price point will be on the 680? I noticed MSI has some new laptops coming out that have a 3GB 680 in them. Those laptops are the main thing keeping me from going ahead and building a desktop. They are flat out beautiful.

    One thing is certain, the 690 will be announced there. But I guess that's not what you are waiting for (hopefully). As these dual GPU on one PCB video cards tend to have a very average performance / price ratio. I have a 5970 and the crossfire scaling is not good, plus it also causes problems in certain games. That being said, from the tests I've seen with the 680 in SLI, they seem to scale a lot better. However it's not enough to justify the price / high power consumption and temperatures unless you are buying that model just so you can say you have the best video card at the moment. But hey, each side needs its flagship video card so...

    You can always wait 3 days to see if they will announce the TI, but even if they do, I doubt you'll be able to get one before May 15.
