I love the physics stuff.

When PhysX is used well (Arkham Asylum, Arkham City), it's really amazing stuff. It's one of the reasons I switched from ATI.

Also, I can't wait for hair to really get going like that.

So cool. 680 will be awesome. I expecy the next round of cards will be a mid range budget one, like 670, and then a more powerful 690. So the 670 will be the awesome one to buy. Though right now I have zero reason to upgrade from my 560ti. It still runs everything smoothly. Mind you I'd like to throw witcher 2 at that thing.

I might upgrade and move my 560Ti to my backup gaming rig at my parents house for when I visit. Depends on pricing and what games are out that I'd like the 680 to take advantage of.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I was planning on building a rig with the 560Ti, but since the 600 series is on our doorstep, I don't mind just waiting for the 660.
