Hi Guys,
I will be buying a new graphics card next week (according to the missus). I've read on here that the card(s) I want will run without a major bottle neck, but then others say i will get a little one? If i tell you what i'm running, could you please, please, please, tell me a definitive yes or no?!

I want to get either a GTX 660 Ti, GTX 670, HD 7950 or Hd7970.

my rig:
CPU: AMD PHENOM II X4 965 BE @ 3.7ghz stable
MOBO: Gigabyte GA- MA 770T-UD3P
RAM : GSKILL RIPJAW (2X4) 8GB DDR3 1333MHZ
HHD: 500GB SATA3 WESTERN DIGITAL
PSU: OCZ 550W FAT1TY series
GCARD: a crappy GT 520 (i just want to run games on as high as i can at 1080p on 1 monitor.)

please note, i will be upgrading cpu, mobo, and PSU somtime soonish ( when i save a little more) so i want the best obviusly :)  i can afford up to a GTX 670 max :) 

thanks in advance

:) 

p.s. i have a cooler master 212 evo so i can push my cpu a little more i think?

the 670/7950 would be good enough. I wouldn't touch the 660.

Not one worth mentioning if your going to upgrade the other parts later.

If you were considering a 7970 to begin with I would go with a 770. Price points are near same.

the idea is............. if you're going to upgrade in the near future, you want a card to compliment that.

PS? I never liked the "Fatality" anything............ just marketing for lesser value parts.

Yes, I'd upgrade my PS.
