I've read around a bit already and from what I've seen I'm pretty sure my CPU will bottleneck the card, but I just wanted to be sure. The CPU will be overclocked to 4.2 GHz. IF the CPU does bottleneck the card, I'll take any suggestions for another card that won't be bottlenecked. I'm looked to upgrade from my Gtx 560.

Yeah , you will probably bottleneck. I recommend getting something from the FX8 Core series like the FX8320 or FX8350. If you don't wanna do that , get a GTX 660Ti , your CPU can't receive a better partner than that. Else get a FX 8320/FX8350 and a GTX 650Ti Boost and later on SLI if possible. The GTX650TiBoost in SLI is a GTX 680 and is almost the GTX 770.

Yes. Even though games aren't really as CPU heavy as many think, if you cheap out on your CPU it will bottleneck the GPU.

Try the 8320.

So, even if I overclock to 4.2 GHz the best graphics card I can get without it getting a bottleneck is the GTX 660ti?

Yeah , the PII X4 965 BE has a good performance , and when OCed to 4.2GHz , I can guarantee it will keep up with the GTX 660Ti. The 660Ti is a great performer too. It can handle most games on high and some on ultra as well. So be assured. Also If anyone's solution helped you the most , give it the Best Answer.
