So I'm looking at the EVGA GTX 680s on Newegg and saw there are like eight different flavors. Other than clock speeds (and price), why the heck are there so many flavors and what's the difference between these five?

EVGA Superclocked, Signature 2 02G-P4-2687-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

EVGA 02G-P4-2683-KR GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked, Signature 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

EVGA SuperClocked+ 02G-P4-2684-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

EVGA 02G-P4-2685-KR GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature+ w/Backplate 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

EVGA 02G-P4-3686-KR GeForce GTX 680 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Am I missing something or is the least expensive card the best?

Thanks!

Yes. Clock speed and extras. Some have a backplate while others do not.

Le sigh.

EVGA 02G-P4-2683-KR GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked
Core: 1084MHz - 1150MHz

Other: Nothing

EVGA 02G-P4-2685-KR GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature+ w/Backplate
Core: 1084MHz - 1150MHz
Memory: 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 @ 6208MHz

EVGA 02G-P4-3686-KR GeForce GTX 680 FTW
Core: 1084MHz - 1150MHz
Memory: 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 @ 6208MHz
Outputs: HDMI, Display Port, DVIx2
Other: Uses vapor chamber cooling

EVGA Superclocked, Signature 2 02G-P4-2687-KR GeForce GTX 680

Consider this a courtesy, and look a the specs next time, because it's pretty obvious what the differences are (Except the FTW version, had to look that one up). And if they are none and they're priced differently, then take the cheaper one, $20 isn't going to get you OMFG features at this tier.

Obviously I had looked at the specs and was trying to figure out why the EVGA Superclocked, Signature 2 02G-P4-2687-KR GeForce GTX 680 had the highest clock speeds, but the lowest price. I was also trying to figure out if it was worth spending the extra money to get a card that was in stock, or waiting for this card to come in. To my thinking, I'm better off waiting.

No, it just depends on who you get. Sometimes you get me, where I don't spoon feed you the answers when I feel like it. And in this case, for the most part, it was clearly obvious what was different between the models.

Thank you. It was my understanding that the forums were here to assist people that needed it and wanted it. Assistance is what I receive 99% of the time. Demundo, please don't judge the whole community based on LatiosXT's comments. You really can find and, if you ask, receive very helpful information here.

LatiosXT is probably the most helpful person on these forums for the past few months. Just thought I'd put my 2 cents in. It's always fun when you try to help someone/give them some advice and they reply with an idiotic comment instead of just expanding on their original question.
