    I will possible upgrade my GTX670-OC-2GB with 2x GTX680-DCII-TOP-2GB, as I can't max-out the ARMA-III-Alpha and Battlefield-4 is already pre-ordered as well. The GTX670-OC-2GB will replace the GTX570-OC in my wife's rig and the GTX570-OC will get sold or will end up in my old Dell-Test-System.

    The Card is not even too bad, if you compare it to something like the ATI-ARES-II. The good thing about this card is, that it is running quite cool and has a better air-flow in a SLI-Configuration, compared to the Gigabyte-Windforce-Cooler, but a GTX690 is more power-efficient. The difference between 1x GTX690 vs 2x GTX670-OC vs 2x GTX680-DCII-TOP is only around 3% out of the box.

    Let me know if you decide to sell the older video card(s) as I'm trying to assemble a gaming PC for a friend's son. I'm on a tight (actually, nonexistent) budget and I'm gathering the components, then I'll teach him how to build a PC. Thanks!

    Ok, will let you know. I have possible to wait to end of the week, to see if I'm able to upgrade.

    After some more research I'm still not 100% for which GTX680-Model I would go too. Maybe I go for the DCII without "TOP", as they are only 2-Slot-wide or the GTX680-SOC, as the fan's are sitting on a better spot for SLI, but the fan's are pretty loud.

    I ordered 2x Gigabyte GTX680-SOC-2GB, which are at the moment on special for AU$ 518,- each and invested the saved money into 1x Seagate ST3000NC000 Constellation CS.2 3TB 7200rpm SATA-3 for AU$ 215,- , which should give me some more speed improvements as well.

    At the moment it looks like, that my wife want's to keep her GTX570-OC-2GB and want's to sell my actual GTX670-OC-2GB, to get some extra money for her new hobby "Cake Decorating", as she want's to get a Cake-Airbrush-Kit.

    I will let you know, if she is changing her mind, as I already told her about your project.

    My WEI-Graphic-Scores went up by 0.2 Points, but I had no time for other Benchmarks yet, as I have to move ~515GB onto my new Seagate.

    Look at those fans!
    SLI? I'm looking forward for benchmarks.

    @MrShowdown
    I will have a look if I can run some Benchmarks tomorrow night after work. I think this Cooling-Solution is the best one if you go for SLI and 3-Slot-GPU's. Didn't game yet, but they are not any louder then the ones from the GTX670-OC-2GB so far, but that should be different if I push them a bit.

    That is an extreme creation you've made there, Tonschuh! I'm wondering how much energy your system uses
