Yeah, I don't even really know where to start, or even if I should bother. （｀＾´）ノ You're blatantly just trolling, or genuinely foolish. Let's see...
Diplomacy42 wrote:“Uses less power"--Spending 200 dollars more on a 680 so that you can save 5 bucks/month... smart.
So many things wrong with this statement alone:
- Assumption that the reduced power usage alone is the only useful feature of a newer chipset despite other people saying to the contrary
- Assumption that you need to buy a 680 to get better performance
- Assumption that a 680 will only save $5/month over a 580
- Assumption that you can get a 580 for $200 less than a 680

Obvious denial of what others have said...
Diplomacy42 wrote:I guess that power per watt marketing hype that nvidia and intel are working hard to shove down our throats is really taking hold over the weak minded.
Purposefully inflammatory and insulting statement that assumes that "power per watt" is not an important metric and also assumes that Nvidia and Intel are the only ones pushing this metric...

Another inflammatory statement that is obviously factually incorrect.

Huh, I think lower average frame times makes the newer cards superior
, not "inferior", right? As far as the "small" premium, let's have a look:
And you can see that those cards are comparable, with the GTX660Ti coming out on top more often than not, here:http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/647?vs=517
Diplomacy42 wrote:And the implication that 580 cards run hotter or fail more often is false. Ill run my cards for days at 100%, they stay nice and cool with the fans at 70%. Keeps the whole house warm though, I'll give you that.
Your cards might stay cool with the fans at 70%, but that doesn't mean they aren't running hotter -- see the Anandtech Bench link above. Hotter parts fail more often, simply speaking, because not everyone runs their fans at a higher-than-stock speed, and not everyone has a well-ventilated case.
Diplomacy42 wrote:My point is that like 5 people here said that they wouldn't even consider choosing 580s regardless of price, because the 680s are newer. That is an emotional decision, not a rational one.
No, nobody said that. Please stop with the blatant lies. Or better yet, just stop posting.
