But ye will the bottlenecking be so effective? It will still run fast right?

It will still run fast. It will just run faster if you replaced your processor with a more current model.

The best 670 to get is the Gitabyte windforce version. Do not get a reference 670 as they have many noise problems.

The windforce version recently won best overall 670. The ASUS version won quietest design. The zotac non-reference model one as the best combination of temperature and performance.

The windforce version is the same price as the reference versions at $399.99 on newegg so there is no reason not to buy it over a reference card.


The only reason to get a reference version is is you are planning on watercooling it because you would be taking off the stock cooler.

Actually even if you're water cooling, you should take the Windforce card. I heard the 680 blocks fit on them as it uses a reference 680 pcb

Your cpu is going to hold back the GTX 670 in a big way, yes you will see improvements but most of the time the GTX 670 is going to be waiting on the cpu for data. A couple of years ago I had a Q9550 paired up with a GTX 480 and when I overclocked the CPU to 4ghz my framerates in certain games nearly doubled, even in GPU heavy games. This was at 1920X1080 with all the eye candy turned on in my games along with AA and AF.

Now obviously if a Q9550 at stock clocks will hold back a GTX 480 what do you think its gonna do to a GTX 670 which is a much faster GPU? Bottom line is this, you need to at least overclock that CPU as much as possible while remaining stable and keeping your temps under control, then start thinking about saving up for a better platform.

Its not a question about fitting into your motherboard, more of a question of fitting into your case, but since a GTX 280 fits, I'm fairly certain a GTX 670 will.

Since all PCI-E x16/x8 ports are the same across all motherboards.
