Will the Intel Core 2 Quad 3GHz bottleneck with a GIGABYTE GTX 670 Video Card?

Hi guys, here is my Computer Specs.

ULTRA Defender Mid-ATX Case

Cool Max 600W Power Supply

GIGABYTE EP43-UD3L Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 @ 3GHz


GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4770


I am wondering if I will be OK getting a GIGABYTE GTX 670 for my computer, I paid $450 for my CPU when it came out, I really don't want to upgrade unless I have to.

My Processor is cooled my a Masscool CPU Fan.

    Yes, it will bottleneck. It will still be far faster than what you have now though. Keep in mind that the GTX 760 is basically a rebranded GTX 670 and generally cheaper.
