My specs are as follows:

AMD x4 3.2ghz
AMD 6870
8GB Ram

I am not entirely sure of the Motherboard model as I picked this computer up second hand on a deal.

My question:

I just picked up a Xenon GTX770 4GB. I was either going to build an entirely new computer around it, or stick it inside of the computer I have already, but im not sure which way im better off.

Will I get everything I can out of the card with my current set-up or am I going to run into a bottleneck in the computer elsewhere when trying to crank up graphics?

Xenon is the brand of the GPU, you are thinking of Xeon.

all 2cpu i found with spec x4 3,2GHz(Phenom ii x4 955,Athlon ii x4 740) is on par with FX 4100 or thereabout . So you should encounter bottlenecking , since GTX 770 is a tough video card. Phenom ii x4 955 uses up to 1333MHz.RAM Try CPU Z to see other specs.
