The 670 is a lot better for performance, heat, and fps. You going to save energy and make more power. I would say yes, a 670 is a major step up from a 480.

This will give you a better idea of where all the card lay in the power levels.

i would get the 7950 or 7970 over a 670 or 680, because with new drivers, they perform better than the nvidia cards.

Amd jumps ahead here and there, but the true power is inside an nvidia card. I would get this:

MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670

Its the Twin Frozr IV Thermal Design. These cards OC very easily and run hard. At stock setting, yeah, these drivers give those cards an edge here and there. But when games ask for physx, and these CUDA cores eat that stuff up, nVidia is the choice to make IMHO.

Here is a break down of some cards per performance.

It will be only a matter of time before nVidia releases a new driver that then takes back the lead. But we have been holding it strong most of the time.

Let us know what you think.

I like that card and the cooler that it has on it kind of looks like the arctic accelero thingy i have on my 480 right but i do love EVGa though but at the same time i like this i think ill stick with the 670
