Will I notice a large difference when I throw in my new video card?

Regardless, I bought this card, it's the best bang for my buck, the 4GB 670 is around $400, and I stated I only wanted to spend around $300. The 760 is newer, while it's not the GREATEST, it's still a newer model. As to the people stating I should have gotten the 280x, I stated I wanted to stick with nVidia cards, say what you will, but I haven't had much luck with ATI cards.

Also, I was looking at the 280x and comparing them side-by-side, and unfortunately if I choose to buy the 280x, I'd have to upgrade my PSU (I have 730W).

Unless you're running 2560x1600+, you don't need more than 2GB.
It's fine that you're happy with the card, but the more you know ect.

Do you mean 370w? Because you should upgrade it anyway if that's the case.
If you meant 730w, unless it's a total junker, it could handle two 280xs, maybe even three.

Good thing the 280X is an AMD card then!

But really, the GTX 760 hasn't been a good deal for a few months now.

I fail to understand your reasoning, so far GhettoLogistics is the only person who has actually answered my question posted in the title, I never asked for your card recommendations, I'm fairly certain I'm capable of doing that myself. I asked you, if it was a nice improvement from the card I previously had, never once did I ask "Could I have bought a better card?". Because god knows, everyone has their own opinion on whats best, and while I respect that, it's people who feel their opinion is better than another, which makes me cringe.

I appreciate the correct and feasible answer Ghetto.

TBH, I have to wonder if this is an elaborate troll topic at this point.
