rendering Physx with CPU will slow down the system a lot... i tested it with my C2D and GTS 450...

And CPU rendered physx is not a gaming option. Watch 2 thirds of your framerate drop right there, if not more.

When it comes to non-nvidia cards and physx, the rule of thumb is to leave physx off.

in fact i want a Nvidia card or a dedicated PPU because i really use a lot Physx...
Physx rendered by CPU sucks, and some apps/games which i use require a dedicated PPU!

From what ive read GTX670 are not that far behind (depending on supplier) and 4 are better value.

For the price there is very little to choose between them, similar graphics levels for a better return in power and heat, one of my colegues at work just installed one ultra on all games no bother.

if the GTX 670 works well at high resolutions and ultra settings, max AA (...), i could consider to get it...

I founded this on Ebay: [sbs] PC CORE i7 3770K/GTX 690 4Gb/RAM 32Gb/HD 2Tb/Wi-Fi/ASUS P8Z77-V | eBay

i'm considering it... A GTX 690 should be the top of the top

Cant comment on the manufacturer but the specs look OK you may want to beef up the CPU cooler though.
As for the 690 from what i've read it is not all that and for the cost you could easily sli 2 670 and get better results, Some of the review sites hint that it is more about bragging rites and less about usablity get the 670 it will do all you need to do, and with less problems.
