I am planning to switch from AMD to Intel. Currently, this one looks nice upgrade for me with 41% better rating. How this would work with my Gtx 670? Currently im not satisfied with the gaming experiences and my guess is i need a better cpu

This CPU should work nicely with a GTX 670 especially if you overclock the CPU.

No. Clock speed is not always what a comparison should be based on. This CPU will be much better than the 6300 if overclocked.

The FX-6300 isn't a bad chip, but the i5 will give you better performance. You should look into forums and other sources to compare benchmarks and what not. I guess it depends on your budget. The 6300 isn't too far away from the i5. Just do some research and look into it.

It is a good combination but keep in mind that this cpu will not bottleneck high end gpus. So if you have the money and have the will to spend it I would recommend a high end gpu.

Is not 100% true. I got the gtx 980 with this gpu, and he do a grate joob. Keep in mind the i5 4690k have the same performance in gaming of any i7 procesor on the market.

I can not be very objective since I prefer AMD but with this cpu I would recommend:
AMD: R9 280
Nvidia: GTX 760
It all depends on your budget and the company you prefer. These are my 2 picks for a good budget with that cpu. You could go a bit lower if you want like the R7 260x or the GTX 750ti.

for me, non-K high-end cpus are waste of money,
K versions are overclockable, so if you have appropriate motherboard, you can sueeze much more performance from it (4.532GHz is my i7-3770K stable freq.)

This version has overclocking potential making it a great choice. But remember to use it with an unlocked motherboard too ;)

Z87 or Z97 is what you should look for when overclocking, ASUS have great VRM, so why not.
I'd go for ASUS Z97M-PLUS maybe, it's just microATX and powerful :)

There's one thing that sets this apart from the 4670k, the TIM. allows for overclocking
(if you're buying a k series processor why wouldn't overclock?) and about a 10-20c temp drop from the 4670k
