Default Where are the 680's little brothers?

The 680 is a damn impressive card, but I can't pay $500 for an upgrade right now. Where are the 670 and 660 series vid cards? Any word when they might be available to purchase?

Garth Merenghi quotes
Most of you will probably know me already from my extensive canon of chillers including "Afterbirth" in which a mutated placenta attacks Bristol.

Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.

They are all on Ebay, start bidding and let that hurt flow through you . They are available and going for what the market will support. Looks like the available cards from the manufacturers are being sold to the highest paying retailers - a.k.a Ebay stores. Which if the supplies are few will limit the 680's to stores selling them greater then the suggested retail price.

$750 Bones is a bit rich for my blood.. Specifically the MSI Frozr, must say after having 2 5770s Twin Frozrs.. I don think I could go back to anything but them after dealing with a reference card... even the best bang for the buck (7850 IMO) are going for upwards of $100 over MSRP due to lack of supply.. the only other decent deal concerning perf/$ has been the couple of GTX 480s at around $200 (Newegg/TigerDirect/Microcenter)

So, I could sell my 680 and pick up two 7870s?

7970 is a great price/perf component because it can be had for 480 boners...
