Why don't you just wait for the next generation of video card from AMD & Nvidia if you are upgrading your whole system soon? Like said, you won't use full potential of the video card with your current CPU.
Waiting for the next card generation will let you buy current generation at a lower price while you can see what the next generation has to offer.
I am planning to upgrade as well, I was about to buy a 7970 when I saw their initial price 550$, now you can find new one at 360$ and used at 260-300$. I think the wait was worth it.

NB: this is not the GHz edition.

I know in europe price are quite high, I suggest you to lurk in the marketplace http://www.overclock.net/f/14303/for-sale-wanted and check for deal s on parts. Pretty sure you will still have a better price even with the extra you will pay on shipping.

Yes you will properly see a significant increase in performance in at the highest setting in games compared to the GTX 280.. in GPU demanding games, like BF3. The Q9550 handles very similar in games compared to a phenom II clock for clock, so if you want and are eqipped to overclock your CPU, it would be great.
But yes the sandy- and ivy bridge architecture is faster, and generally also clocled a little higher so the Core 2 Quad series would properly hold the GTX 670 down a bit in some cases. Dont think much tho:) I´d go for it, it should be good for some years to come

Ye that's why... i'm waiting for the new generation to finish. than i will buy a whole new gaming system but for now i want to extend my time with this GPU. Will it be worth it with the intel Q9550. and can it handle 2 years more with this CPU? for the incoming games.

Yes and yes, considering the cost of a GTX 670, say when the GTX 8xx comes out and considering the cost of a platform upgrade with cpu, mobo, ram and maybe cpu-cooler, the new GPU will provide a big boost in a lot, if not most games. However the CPU isn't a beast anymore and you should really consider overclocking it to maximise your performance, particularly in CPU demanding games. like Starcraft 2 or GTA 4.

In my humble opinion, if you are planning to keep your current cpu/mobo, I would consider the overclocking option if your motherboard supports that.
Secondly, why specifically the GTX670? Why not the GTX660 or whatever is the AMD's equivalent?
Thirdly, I wouldn't get a GPU (gtx670 = 300-400$) with your current system then upgrade since when you will upgrade better and more powerful GPU will be available while your GPU will not worth much at that time (aka atleast 30+% lost in value when new generation release).
IT is a smater move to spend less on a lower to mid end video card that won't be bottlenecked by the CPU and change the GPU when you will upgrade your CPU & motherboard.

GPU is the thing you will have to change the most to keep your system "up to date". My i7-870 can still rock a good 2-3 years but my 5870 is due for this year.

Spending 300+$ on a gpu is a waste of money and luxury. People who bought the 7970 or the GTX680 at 500$, one year after their release I can get nearly two for that price (used easily and with deals after new generation). I spent 400$ for my 5870 , I learned the lesson, no more than 300$ new or you will regret it. Better spend less and upgrade more than spending a lot and not upgrading.

Ye i know but i wanna buy some time... i want to buy like 2 years of gameplay again until i will buy a new gaming rig. so i guess to have this kind of a powerfull gpu will save me for that.. and after that i can put it into my new gaming rig after 2 years.
