If you by the over clocked version you are looking around #330.  I got my 670 for $409.  Yes it was $100 more however I can overclock it and get some really good performance out of it.  Down the road perhaps the prices will fall on the cards but that is the nature of the beast you can either buy it now or buy the card later.  By then there maybe a newer higher end card avaible.

There will be a higher end card by that time. Not a higher model up from 660ti but, yes overall. But if you are looking to spend that much the 670 is a better option considering some of the sales you may see now on various sites.

Yes, if you wait for better products or for the product to be cheaper, you'll just wait until the next generation of products come out. By then , you will have set your mind on another card or something.

This is why I bought the MSI 660 TI PE, $ 300 after rebate. This appears to be the best value compared to the GTX 670 (which I have had my eye on for awhile now). I saw the price with similar performance and jumped.

The MSI 670 PE is a lot more. I would easily afford a 7970 if I were to pay that much for a 670 anyway. As long as you don't play too high or resolutions and expect crazy settings the 660Ti is decent.

The 670 is in a much better position to stand the test of time given that graphics will soon be less constrained by consoles (ahem, legacy hardware). In other words, graphics intensiveness will increase across the board soon after the next gen consoles are released in 2013.

Lucky you were able to get a 670 TOP from Asus. I can't find them anymore. SO Evga and gigabyte will have to do. The gigabyte should fit in my case because I seen someone post about it on another forum.

I'm looking at upgrading my GTX 460 SC to a GTX 670 after reading about the memory bandwidth constraints on a GTX 660 Ti and I'm still not sure which version to get based on Cooling/Fan noise mostly. I'd prefer one with the 680 pcb while maintaining low temps and keeping the fan noise to a minimum (Similar to my evga 460 SC). Obviously looking for non-reference cooler designs.

I've looked into the EVGA 670 FTW model, but I'm not sure if it'll meet those requirements or not. The FTW model seems to follow my old 9800 GTX+ blower style and the fan was never adequate for cooling or noise level. I'd like to be proven wrong, as this is the model I prefer being used to EVGA's support, but I will keep an open mind to other brands.

Another model I've seen people recommend is the Gigabyte Windforce, which looks as though it cools well and isn't noisy, but it's very hard to tell from any number of video reviews how loud it'll be. I'm not sure about Gigabyte's video card quality since I've never bought any, or MSI models, and I've had enough quality control problems with ASUS to avoid them completely.

I'm just curious if I should look into something else if the EVGA GTX 670 FTW is both too noisy and hot for a 24/7 computer.
