The 7970 GHz Edition is also a card worth considering. It's actually faster than the GTX 680 in a lot of games and benchmarks.
The problem with the 7xxx series of cards is even though the physical hardware is faster and they can manage some benchmarks better, even on the latest drivers they have terrible issues with frame latency. It's something that AMD have been working on with experimental drivers (not yet released, mitigate a great deal of the problem with the HD7990) but given this kind of frame latency in comparison to NVidia cards:
I don't really think you can recommend them currently.
