I RMA'ed a GTX570 and EVGA is giving me a GTX 960 SC Gaming (04G-P4-1962-KR) in return.
My question is, I want to know if the 960 will be faster than my 670 w/clocks @ 1200/6000 at 1080p.

I looked for comparisons on a lot of different sites and there is not much to find, except for the fact that a lot of those benches were done over 2 years ago, with newer drivers I would think that the 960 would rank a little higher on the scale now. One thing for sure, I do know that my 670 is faster than a stock 680 (sometimes).

Plus the 960 having more VRAM should help me since the 670 chokes in ME:A when it comes to GPU grunt and VRAM.
Is it worth my time or not?

Most gtx960's will hit 1480 on the core and beat a gtx670 @ 1200. The 4gb of vram will also help.
Make sure you overclock the 960's memory and it will be much faster. It should do 7800 memory.

That sounds great! I was pretty sure it would, but better safe than sorry.
Thx for your feedback.
