No it wont. A better question would be: "Does physx and the name nvidia justify the extra dollars that im using to get a 680 over the better 7970?"

PhysX, gpu boost and potential to do work is what I want, not just normal gaming at this stage. though an intel processor would help in that I will upgrade to one eventually as long as I have a system better than what I have right now i'm happy.

GPU boost is useless. It doesnt even show true clocks.

It depends what games you play. In some games it will be a bottleneck and in others it wont.

Unless you need 4gb of Vram, I would suggest getting a gtx 670 instead. It costs less and is almost as fast.

i'll just go the 770 7ghz memory will probably make up for the 2gb of vram i was planning to get.

How do you know, people, if it will bottleneck or not?

I'm very interesting in know that, really.

Down clock the CPU and check the frame rate against it at stock, then overclock it and note the frame rate, the difference will tell you all.
