Default New GPU!

So I built my PC in November and want to upgrade the GPU soon. To be able to max most games and do GPU programming.

My current build:
CPU: I5-3570k
PSU: Corsair 650TX
RAM: Geil 1600 2x4GB this was free not my first choice
MOBO: AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 ATX
Case: Corsair Carbide 300R
GPU: EVGA 650Ti 2GB

The main upgrade reason is more compute power for CUDA programming, but I also have gotten back into gaming since I built and with summer fast approaching want something more powerful.

All suggestions are welcome. The budget is $300 -$400.

How much better than the 660ti is the 670? Not that I don't want the 670 just wondering. May just wait and by a 680 during the summer.

5-20% depending on resolution and game in question.
