2560x1440 with 2 460's in SLI? I must have read that wrong as I can't see how those cards could do that. I have the same setup btw and I love it but I only game at 1680x1050. I thought I remembered reading somewhere in this thread (I think it was a post from Jethro) stating that the only area the 680 was beaten by the 7970 was at ultra high resolutions. Might this be the one time that Jethro talked someone into an AMD setup?
Nm, I found the post and copied from there what he said.
The only other "weak point" the GTX680 I can think of is gaming at resolutions higher than 57X12, and as there is probably up one gamer per state doing this I'll give you that one. (and note 4GB GTX680 models will end that very very small advantage in the next few weeks accoring to rumor)
So unless your gaming room monitor setup resembles Neil Peart's drum set Activate, I don't think the 7970 would be a better choice than the 680.

I have my 680 gtx powering 3-24 inch 1920x1080 monitors and games run well. Surround is very easy to set up. Previously had a 6970 running Eyefinity but this 680 GTX is a BRUTE!
