GTX 570 or 670

Currently I have the EVGA GTX 570 Classified, but it's available for the Step-Up Program. I can get a reference GTX 670 for an extra $99. Would this be worth it? I was originally planning on getting another 570 down the road when it's cheaper for SLI, but I'm not sure which is the better option. Thanks!

Get the 670. It's a monster, and will cost way less than SLI 570s.

I'm going to endorse willard's answer as I'm itching to get my gtx 670 delivered to my front door! What's more, if you SLi already, you don't have headroom for another graphics card or you'll have to buy a new set when you need to upgrade - which then you gtx 570 will start to lose in value. Don't forget to select the best answer that you feel is most appropriate.

Thanks for the tip, as I'm new to computer building and these forums. Where can i find out how SLI 570 Classifieds compare to a single reference 670? Judging by your answer it'd be worth $99 to upgrade now for performance/price and future-proofing right?

it wouldnt future proof as there is no such thing, but yes, it would provide a much faster upgrade path as an option for sli later at a 99 dollar price tag. you will roughly get 20-30% more performance. and have the later said option

next year when the 770 comes out you can pay $99 more and get an even better card ;)

it depends on whether nvidia can keep it's act up and continuing to bring in good products - this person seems to want it now though, so I'd say it's fairly reasonable to upgrade - I mean the 670 is even faster than the 580 and even the HD 7970 in some benchmarks - why not? An SLi'd 670 can actually compete with the gtx 690 is some benchmarks - why not? The gtx 670 has the best performance per price ratio right now. Also, it depends on whether you're doing surround setup though - to play on a single monitor the gtx 670 is a tad too powerful - so imagine how future proof two gtx 670 would be - unreal just demonstrated their unreal engine 4 with the gtx 680 - and an OC'd gtx 670's performance is comparable to the 680 which ensure your card is ready for the next generation of gaming graphics. btw DX12 is still a few years away.

If only... EVGA's Step-Up program is only good for 90 days :/
