Hey guys I am trying to decide whether to drop $400 on a 670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or if i should go a GTX 570, the 2.5gb version for $340 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . 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.

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.

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