Hi guys,

I was pretty much set on ordering an EVGA GTX 670 today but I'm second guessing myself now (must be the $400).

What is the next best EVGA GPU after the GTX 670?

At the moment I am only playing Diablo 3 but I did want to get a new card that will future proof me if I do want to play any upcoming games which are more graphic intense. I want to stick with nvida and evga.

On the nVidia side the GTX 580 is the next step down but really not worth it because it costs almost as much while being considerably slower. After that it's the GTX 570 and 560 Ti. On the AMD side you have the 6970 and 7870. I say get a Radeon 7870, but if you must stick with EVGA then get a GTX 570

I think your best bet is to just wait it out for the GTX660 if you don't want to go with an AMD card.Should be out sometime this month or next month.

What are your full system specs?(CPU,RAM,etc.)

No such thing as future-proofing anything with the exception of getting many years out of a good PC case. Any GPU you get this year will be replaced in about 18 months with the next-best thing and old news in 2-3 years. Count on it.

The 670 might only be regrettable from the standpoint of your budget, but it's not from the standpoint of performance.

I'd recommend you go with your initial purchase decision and get the 670 or you'll always be wondering what it might have been like. Dropping down will make a big difference. Consider you will have nearly the best card on the market in a 670. Plus, it will have higher re-sale when you want to get your next card.
