I'm looking to buy a new GPU as mine was DoA.
I'm running i5-4670k and 8Gb Ram.

Im most interested in a GTX 770, however I was wondering is there any need to spend an extra £80 when I could purchase an EVGA GTX 670 FTW for £270.
Is it worth the £60 more for only an 8% increase in performance? does it have a bigger overclocking headroom compared to the 670 since the 670 is already overclocked? ease of rma between the two? would it be more future proof to go for the 770?

This is the GTX 670 I am looking at:

I want to run maxed out (or almost) battlefield 4, gta V and watchdogs at 60fps and games that will come out in the near future.

The max price I would like to spend is £350, however if possible I would like to spend less.

All help is very much appreciated.
Thank you.

Sorry to hear that but im personally going for a radeon HD 7950 because they are only a few models down from the latest gpu ati has, they get good performance (not personal experience but in getting it soon along with other parts for my first gaming build ever! =) super excited) Hope this helps. This is less then your limit because its goes for around $350-280 which from my last look at the currencies exchange rate the usd in under the euro in value. You will get well below but if u want 2 pimp it out and go close to your limit, or a little above go for the 7990.

I don't think the GTX770s are good OCers. Keep in mind its just an overvolted GTX680, so its already running near the max of what the chip can do. Whether its worth the extra £60 is up to you.
