Pick the one that best fits your budget, offers the most features and bundle for the price.  Other considerations are warranty, customer service, custom cooling solution and factory overclocking.

 

Really, it's hard to go wrong with just about any brand these days, so it really does come down to price versus performance and the other tangibles I noted above.  Curious as to why you picked the GTX 670 though.  I've preferred nVidia cards the last few years (since the release of the GTX 460s any way), but I don't think the GTX 670 at their current pricing is the best pick for the dollar.

Really depends on how you plan to use it. If you are on a single 1080 monitor and that is what you plan to use for gaming then anything past the 660Ti or the 7950 is a bit of a waste.

I picked up the 670 ftw since its a full pcb board and uses a 680 waterblock.    At the time it was easier to find 680 waterblocks the the smaller 670 ones.    The sad thing is it sits in a computer that only gets used like once a month at lan parties :(  but it runs everything on max for the parties so im happy with it.


All four rigs under water

 Primary Rig - i5-4670k - Asus Maximus VII Hero - Mushkin Enhanced Redline 16GB @ 2133 CAS9 - Evga GTX 980 - Silverstone 1200w

i5 2600K @ 4.2Ghz -Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z -Mushkin Redline ddr3 8Gb -MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 580 in SLI -Silverstone 1200W
Secondary Rig -i5 2500K @ 4.2Ghz -Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z -Mushkin Blackline ddr3 8Gb -EVGA Superclock GTX 560TI in SLI -Silverstone 850w

Third Rig - MSI GT60 2OD Laptop - i7 4700MQ @ 3.2Ghz - 16Gb ram - Nvidia GTX780m - 128,120,240msata ssd - 1TB HD

Fourth Rig -i7 950 @4.2GHz -Asus Rampage 3 extreme -Mushkin Ridgeback ddr3 12Gb -4 GTX 8800 Ultra -Silverstone 1500W
Fith Rig -i5 2500K @ 4.2Ghz -ASRock Z77E Mini ITX -Mushkin Redline ddr3 8Gb -EVGA 670 FTW -Silverstone 800w


I dont fail. I just succeed at finding out what doesn't work.

Here you go http://www.amazon.co...eywords=gtx 670

 

or if you want http://www.amazon.co...eywords=gtx 680

 

Can't go wrong with either one, personally I would go with the 680 if I wanted a single gpu solution but I would get the 670 if I wanted SLI, both are great cards.
