GPU for intel core 2 quad Q9550

I want to upgrade my nvidia 9800 GT to a new one, and I'm thinking about GTX 660, R9-270X, GTX 660Ti, or GTX 760.
I want to play games like Skyrim, Bioshock infinite, and other future games on mid-high settings. (I'm not going to play games that require super high spec PC e.g. BF4)
I know CPU is not that great but with this upgrade, I want it to last about 1-2 years.

I'm worried about my CPU bottlenecking a bit, but which one do you recommend?
Other GPUs not on the list are also welcome!

  1. Best answer
    The R9 270x and the GTX 760 are both great options. But you'll need a decent power supply of 500w like XFX,Corsair,Antec,Seasonic
  2. I have 530W PSU so it should be fine.

    Is it worth spending extra money to get GTX 760 then? What I think is that my CPU will bottleneck 760 and cant have 100% performance.
  3. Yeah but what brand is your power supply, a cheap 530w PSU will not be good
  4. It says "be quiet" "pure power" "80 plus"

  5. I just put in a gtx 660 in with my q9550 system, And I do notice some bottle necking with it, enough so that I plan on upgrading my cpu and mobo sooner rather than later
