I currently have computer that I use specifically for gaming. I am curious as to what suggestions you might have for me updating my system. I have a little over five hundred bucks and Im thinking about buying a GTX 670.
My Specs:
Intel Core I3-2105 Sandy Bridge
8GB Ripjaws
Windows 8 64 Bit
850 PSU
No Graphics card because my 6850 died

Motherboard ?
You might consider an i5+660 ti, depending on the motherboard.

Like this :

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($188.79 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card ($274.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $463.78
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Or a 7950 if you prefer amd : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100352...

The cpu and those two cards fits 500$.
For a 670 gtx only the card, no room for the cpu.

heres my board: ASUS P8H61-M (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard, would I still be able to max all my games with the AMD parts?

That motherboard supports the i5-3470, you just need to update the bios, since you have already a cpu you can do it.
Either the 660 ti or 7950 will maxout most of the games with good amount of fps.
My preference goes with the 660 ti, but i leaved an amd card option in there, like the 7950 if you want to.
