Hi all, I wanted some advices on updating my graphic card. It's been almost 2 years I'm having my GTX560 (non-TI) and I feel I could get something better to get ready for 2013 gaming. I'm playing League of legends, D3, and CoD black ops 1. Maybe some other nice and demanding games later.
I coule buy anywhere cheap or from canada for low shipping fee(NCIX, newegg.ca, etc) I've got a budget of 400$ But hey if I should wait some weeks for exemple to buy a GTX680 cheap or something, I still could wait since it's not urgent lol. I'd like to buy something that I will NOT regret and will last a long time like I know I should have bought the GTX570 but did not had the money.

Setup:
-Ivy bridge i7 3770K @ 3.5GHz
-Asus P8Z77-v LK
-16Gb DDR3 G.skills @ 2133MHz
-GeForce GTX 560 1GB GDDR5 256-bit
-Mushkin deluxe 240GB SSD Drive
-650W Coolermaster PSU (which is quieg and recent)

i'd go with the 670 gtx 2GB almost no substantial performance loss compared with the 680 gtx and its $359.99 after $20.00 rebate, i doubt that 680 gtx will ever drop bellow 400$.
The that you have psu isn't that good but i think it will do.

Ya I was looking around for the GTX 670..
And yes I think that it is this one for my PSY but i ain't sure at this moment. I'll check out when my computer will come back home because it is in maintenance due to mobo/ram fail.
@osoben: Did you get a really big boost dude? An you're telling that the new card came even more silent ?? The 560 is already somewhat quiet hehe :p 
I saw that the interestings card in my situation are: the 670, the HD7970, and the 680. 670 seems to be the best choice! Is it important to get the FTW version, would it be a waste to not take it (like not taking a TI version etc)
