I currently have Sli gtx 560 and honestly have not had many or any issues at all in terms of running games Im quite comfy to be honest. Im currently a student on his gap year who does 3D animation although i specialize in 3D scenery and atmosphere for video games. Not really important but still. is it worth me upgrading to a gtx 670?

some of my works on this website if you are interested.

I don't know why so many people ask if it is worth upgrading. -_- No it is not worth upgrading. People always wanting to have top of the line tech when what they have is good enough.

Best way to determine what each laptop GPU can run on each game. Look for yours in CP

Your rig does everything thing you want with no problems right(or not many)? If yes then no reason to spend more money that you don't need especially if you are a student. most students pull money from loans, then can't pay them back, go into bankruptcy, etc. (American way of life borrowing more than you can pay back.)

For one, if you're cozy with your current GPU(s), why upgrade?

Not to mention that it's pretty expensive to upgrade every time the next series is out. You won't see a huge improvement upgrading this soon, if not any. But hey, if you're loaded go ahead. I'd rather upgrade the RAM if I had to get SOMETHING new.

Not trying to bash, but even if it's to get rid of a potential microstuttering problem in the future, I'd still wait longer.
