Hi everyone!

I'm planning on getting a GTX 500 series video card (still not sure which one) and I've been out of touch with computer harwares for a while now and I was just wondering if it's a good idea to get a GTX 500 card, probably the GTX 570 and will my system bottleneck it?

Here are the current specs for my PC:

PC Power & Cooling Silencer 910 Watts (1000 Watts Max.)
ZEROtherm Butterfly CPU Cooler BTF90 778/754/939/A
THERMALTAKE Soprano RS 101 ATX Case Black w/Window
OCZ Vista Performace Ed. 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz
EVGA nforce 780i SLI Socket 775 Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66Ghz Socket 775 CPU OCed to 3.5GHz
9800 GTX SLI:
PNY GeForce 9800 GTX OC 512MB PCIe w/Dual Link
EVGA 9800 GTX 512MB
