Getting a new GPU!
Hello! I'd like some advice on new GPUs. Basically I'd like to prepare for Rome II and also Planetside 2.
What I have right now is the following:
System Model: MS-7522
Inte Core i7 920 Quad Processor
Corsair Powersupply 750W
Corsair Dominater DHX+ DDR3 6gb ram
GPU: Asus Geforce 560ti 1gb
What I've been looking at is the ZOTAC Geforce GTX 670 2gb. And basically I'm just wondering if it's worth my money? Or should I go 660 instead or perhaps pay the extra money to go for a 680?
Note: Not too fond of tinkering around!

gtx670 is the sweet spot right now in terms of high end performance vs. value for money.
If you feel it's price is a bit over your budget, ignore the 660ti and go for a gtx580. The 580 matches up pretty well to a gtx670 and is cheaper than a 660ti.

Cool! I think I'll go for the 670 then!

An additional question that I've started thinking about!
I have the Corsair Powersupply 750W (ATX 12V V2.2, 80 Plus, Standard. 4x 6+2-pin PCIe, 8x SATA,)
It is roughly three years old at this point. Should I be thinking of exchanging it in the near future or can I expect it to survive another two years?

I'd suggest waiting a bit as they have just released the 660ti and like the last gen cards. the 560ti was the last to arrive followed by 3-4 months until 6XX series arrived. So If I were you I'd suggest waiting a bit to see what the 7XX series brings. Generally their cards will arrive within mid Q1 to early Q2 of 2013.Official RPS Thread argument catalyst.

AMD will probably release their Radeon HD 8000 series earlier - should begin arriving sometime this winter, with the range fleshed out by spring.
Still, playing the waiting game in a market that changes this quickly seems futile. There's always going to be something newer and better just around the corner.
