    I know that GTX 690 is the newest one.. but alot say its not worth it.. it costs alot but isnt really that much better compared to older GTX video cards..

    So my question is which GTX currently would be best?

    Do you mean which is "best for the price"? The GTX 690 is the "best money-no-object" NVidia card in terms of raw performance. What is your budget?

    Overally best .. i mean few of people that i know they say that Nvidia 690 is new product so its expensive. But compared to 680 it only a little better.. and 660 up to 680 dont have that much of difference...

    So my question is.. which GPU is currently worth to buy? Which has superb performance and reasonable price....
    Cuz newest doesent always mean best..

    690 is the best.

    If you're a fool with your money, get it and enjoy the extra 4 frames a second that you can't notice versus the 670.

    Or, be smart, get a 670, spend your few found $200 on something else... or here's an idea, save it!

    you also have to take into account that your psu is capable of running whatever you decide upon

    updated video cards usually mean updated psu as well

    I'd say the 670 to be honest. It's not too expensive and there isn't much difference between it and the 690. Well, okay, a few extra frames per second... but that's it, really. Just a few extra frames per second for an extra £200 or whatever it is.

    gtx 670 is bigger than HD 6850 or smaller?
    will 670 even go on my motherboard?

    It's a big card, yes. It fits onto most motherboards and is PCI backwards compatible, which means that you don't need a PCIe 3.0 connection. Just make sure that your case is big enough, you have a big enough power supply and there is plenty of room to keep the entire thing cooled.

    wattage is minor it is the available amps for use on the 12v line and is not the gross amps amount listed on the label
