So i finally decided it is time upgrade my gpu (gigabyte 8800gts 640mb) and since the gtx 770&780 were announced the gtx 670&680 prices decreased so i thought wth lets go for it.
My main indecision is between these two bad boys, I mean the price difference is about 130$ but is that price justifies the difference performance wise? I checked in hwcompare and they are quite close but I really need an opnion from someone who had real exp with these or at least one of them.
Thanks for any help.

I have a 670 with a full length PCB (like a 680), i've had it for just over a year now and it's fine for me, if i could be bothered to overclock it i'm sure it will go probably further than 680 stock clocks.

My friend has two 660's in SLI overclocked and they sometimes run better than my one card so... meh.

I dont think i'll ever overclock a graphic card by myself without water cooling system and i can't afford both of them right now. But doesnt matter what card i'll end up buying it will be a factory oc version(they are about 10$ more than the reference card).
Anyway can you elaborate on "fine for me" please?

"Fine for me" means it can run any game i play (Exception being crysis 3 and last light) at the max settings as well as add graphics mods on top (If available) and still get good FPS.

Well I guess it depends on your rig as well, may I ask what are your pc specs?
