1. Yes the 670 can OC but Nvidia has gimped OC quite a bit with the 6xx

2.I would sell out a extra bit for a z77 since you can OC the 3470 to 4ghz on the z77 chipset

3. At stock it may in some CPU heavy games but uping the turbo will solve any issues

4. I would grab this 7970 unless you need CUDA or PhsyX

The 3470 can overclock on the z77 chipset up to 4ghz (turbo +4)

In cpu heavy games like bf3 64 man or World of tanks it will and also depends on your graphics settings

I am not familiar with 670 OC but Nvidia has locked all voltages AFAIK
