Current system specs:
Motherboard: ASUS P8H61-M LX R2.0
CPU: Intel Pentium G2120 @ 3.10GHz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 610
MEMORY: 2 X 2GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM Single Rank
PSU: GIGABYTE SUPERB 550/550P GE-P450P-C2
Resolution: 1440 x 900

Which of the cards mentioned in the title are most compatible with g2120 with no bottleneck problems? I would mainly play GTA V PC when it comes out. Currently, eyeing for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but worried about bottleneck problems caused by cpu...

Are you sure about g2120? I think there would be bottlenecks with these cards also your g2120 and your 4GB ram is not enough for GTA V. 7770 is the weakest between these three cards but still you will have GPU bottleneck if you pair it with a g2120.

Reason for g2120 is that I just installed it on my system for programming and light gaming and it does the job pretty well. But should I change, would aiming for the best of i5 be ideal?

i5 3570k is the best choice for gaming and as it's socket 1155, you don't need to upgrade your mobo. So if you are worry about bottlenecking, this is the CPU you need.

why does people ask things about GTA5? we have an official requirement or something?
I know that GTA 4 is horribly optimized, we should wait for the actual game to see what will happen
