Damn, too bad I'm on the opposite side of the country. :(
I didn't make it!
You think that's bad? I'm on the wrong side of the planet. =p
I'm more interested in the 680, pretty good price for it's claimed performance. I'd rather get one with one dual link DVI port and full width exhaust vent though. For that matter I may hold out for a 670, which may equal if not beat a 580. Maxwell is only two years away. I'm not sure spending $500 on a GPU makes sense when in a couple years there will be WAY more powerful cards.
Some were speculating a 670 Ti 2GB would cost $450, but if they're saying $500 for a card that beats the $550-$590 7970, the 670 must be planned for around a $350 price point like the 570 was. AMD better do some price adjusting. I love it when Nvidia turns the tables on value. Then again, it's not surprising. They've always been better at the die shrinking game.
That's my (awful) thought process behind getting new cards whenever they're released.

What's so "awfull" about it? It's just being realistic. If I can get by for well over a year on a measly GTS 250 1GB, I think a 670 would be plenty for 2 years, maybe even two and a half if it takes that long to get a Maxwell at a reasonable price. I'm sure the 670 will most likely have the same architecture and features the 680 does too (GPU Boost, Adaptive VSync, TSAA support, etc).
For some that extra power may be necessary if they're running 2560x1600 or whatever. Even then it would only be noticeable in a couple games like Crysis and Metro. For most, the differences between the 670 and 680 would never be seen, because the added frame rates would be beyond visual detection.
