GeForce GTX 680 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 680 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 680 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 680 to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to around 60% better than a single GeForce GTX 680 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 680. Expect this combination to draw up to 390 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.

I'd change the recommended resolution to 1440/1600p resolution. that combo is wayy too overkill for a 1080p res.

That is a very unfair comparison. 5970 is a dual graphics GPU of two 5870. GTX 680 SLI is two GTX 680. To make a fair comparison, you would have to compare either one of yours only or GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI or GeForce GTX 690 SLI :D
