I am split between buying a nice gaming pc now witha 3570k and gtx 670, or waiting until the 700 or 8000 series graphics cards to come out. I heard that they would be coming out before the 3rd quarter of this year, but I dont know if i can wait. I could either buy one now, or in June. Which should I go with? Thanks in advance.

AMD isn't coming out with new cards this year. NVidia probably is, but without new competition from AMD I doubt the price/performance will improve drastically. Haswell on the CPU side will probably make more of a difference re: waiting than the new series of video cards.
I doubt you'll get drastically better performance for your $$ by waiting.

I can tell you that my GTX 680 gets min 80fps on bf3 with ultra settings at the standard 1920 x 1080 and the 670 is only a few fps slower from what I can see on youtube. How many fps do you like to game at ? I doubt anything is coming out that is so awesome that a 670 will seem slow anytime before the rest of your pc feels outdated. Just my 2 cents, get a good card now and enjoy it.
