GTX 670? Worth it?

Hey guys I am trying to decide whether to drop $400 on a 670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130782 or if i should go a GTX 570, the 2.5gb version for $340 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130687 . Obviously the 670 is the more powerful card but whenever i read reviews on it most of them are talking about how the card acts up alot and crashes and I'm not really a fan of wasting money :D . Should i go with the less powerful 570 or take my chances with a 670 ?
My specs are
CPU: 3570k at 3.4ghz probably gonna OC in the future.
Ram: 8gb
PSU:650watt
Mobo: Gigabyte GA Z77
Thanks.

  1. If your on a very tight budget go with the 570. But really what you want is the 670 as is about 50% faster and more power efficient. Plus a single 670 can handle 2560x1600 resolution with max settings on most games. I got a 570 it can run basically all games with highest settings with playable frame rates at 2560x1600.

    I can't wait till my 2 x 670 arrive.

    A GTX670 is appropriate to your 3570K cpu.
    You will always wonder with regret buying a lesser card.

    I have had zero problems with the similar GTX680.

    For good US support (hopefully not needed) buy EVGA.
  3. go for a gtx 580 its a great card very powerful ive also had the gtx 670 never noticed much of a difference

    One difference, apart from performance, is that the GTX670 runs cooler, quieter, with less power.
