Latest GPU that will not be bottlenecked by i7-875K

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello Guys;

Current Rig: (Built on August 2010)
CPU: intel Core i7-875K, 2.93 GHz (3.6 GHz Boost) with 8 MB Cache, Currently clocked @ 3.78GHz
CPU Cooler:Thermaltake Spinq Vt Cpu Cooler
Motherboard:ASUS LGA 1156/ Intel H57/ DDR3/ 2133OC/ USB3.0 & SATA 6Gb/s - ATX Motherboard P7H57D-V Evo
Memory:G.SKILL RIPJAW 8GB (2X4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHZ DUAL CHANNEL KIT
HD2 of Western Digital 640 GB Caviar Black SATA 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive WD6402AAEX
Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX460 Superclocked 1024 MB DDR5 PCI-Express 2.0
Monitor:
-LG 23” 3D Ready 120Hz 1080p LCD Response time: 3ms (W2363D-PF)
-LG LCD TV 32" response time:5ms, Freq:120Hz, 1080p
Peripherals: LG Electronics 10X Internal SATA BD-RE WH10LS30
-Tp-Link TL-WN951N 300 Mbps Wireless-N PCI Card - 3 antennas
Power supply: Thermal take 550W

I've been told by members of another forum that connecting a 780 to this rig, will bottleneck the 780. The only solution is to build a new PC but Ive am thinking of waiting until the new gtx 800 series and intels Broadwell processors comes out.So my question is what is the latest GPU that will connect to this rig that will not be bottlenecked as am thinking of giving this rig to my nephew when I build a new rig. He has been nagging for a gaming pc, but he also asked for a PS3 and he only played 2 games with it.

One GPU or 2 in SLI/Crossfire. Am okay with changing the PSU.

Update:
-A member of that other forum recommended r9 270 and the maximum 760.

What do YOU think will the 760 performance not be diminished by the CPU?

Planning to replace the CPU cooler with something better like corsair H80.

I run a 7970 with a core 2 quad with no problems. A 780 should run just fine just push your overclock into the 4ghz+ range and you'll be fine.

Would you recommend 2 way sli gtx 770 over the gtx 780?

I would be afraid your first gen i7 would hold back two 770's, unless you got her up in the 4.2GHz+ range.

On a single monitor, honestly just grab the one GTX 780 and call it a day.

Am thinking of corsair h80 or h100? Or thermaltake equivalent
post #10 of 14
You mean corsair h80i and h100i?

Right now newegg has a thermaltake 2.0 water Pro which is as good as the h80i for 40usd AR

For the case I would go with the nzxt phantom 410
