In my view, the top of the line flagship cards like the 680m and the 7970m are overkill for 1080p. They would be great for a 2880x1800 rMBP display, but at this time there aren't any games out there that won't run just fine maxed out at 1080p with a slightly weaker card that is hundreds of dollars cheaper, and I really doubt the "next gen" games are going to be that much more demanding.
Otherwise, if some really demanding game comes out in 3 years, you can always dial down anti-aliasing from 16xMSAA to 8xMSAA or 4xMSAA (which does not look that much different on a laptop screen IMO), or, since it's a Sager you can actually upgrade the GPU.
