You'd be better off and save more money with either 2 4 GB 760s or 2 7970s

Also get DDR3 1600 RAM not 1333

I'd replace the CPU/mobo with i5 4670k and a Z87. Slightly better performance and lower power consumption for around the same price.

Also, two 670s for that price...not a great deal. Agree that two 4GB 770s would most likely last longer into the future, and are not that much more. I would not go with Crossfire until they get the stuttering issues worked out, if you'd rather get 2 Radeon cards.

If one 670 isn't performing to your liking you could get another, but if it's working well enough for the games you play I would wait til newer cards come out and get one of those.
