The only card that is going to be as good as the GTX 670 will be the AMD HD 7970.  However, a video card at this level may result in needing a power supply upgrade.

Then you should have no problem with the HD 7970 if you really want to spend $400.  Are you upgrading a current video card that you have now in the system?

Can you buy me one too?  My poor little ole HD 6870 just can't play with the new kids on the block anymore.
