IMO 670 isn't worth the price with the latest drops in ATI cards, compare these two for example.

XFX 7950 OC Black Edition 3GB - Review

Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce OC - Review

On Crysis at 1920x1200 the 670 oc gets an avg FPS of 76.61 while the 7950 OC Black ed gets 61 avg, bit of an increase for sure, but currently the 670 Windforce is $419 on newegg and the 7950 OC is $339. If you got the extra cash for sure Nvidia will get you better performance, but to me $80 extra isn't worth 15 FPS, and while both those reviews are testing on difference resolutions on overclocking for some reason :S, I am willing to bet the 7950 will overclock pretty close to the 670.

Thats why I choose the 7950 Black Ed for my build.
