Hi, I'm looking to get a new NVIDIA GPU.

My current CPU is a Q6600 overclocked.
My current GPU is a NVIDIA 9800 GTX, which will be demoted to another system (hence my decision to get a new card)

PSU: Corsair 620W

Memory: 4GB

Obviously my CPU is a tad dated so I don't want bottleneck - but I do want maximum performance from this rig long term.

Also, I would like the 'option' to go SLI.

Looking forward to your recommendations.

I would recommend a GTX 560. They are only a little over $200 on Newegg and will be a giant leap forward in terms of performance. I wouldn't recommend going any higher because of CPU bottlenecks, but I'm not an expert on that and maybe someone else could shed some light on that matter.

+1 for a 560Ti. A nice step up from the 9800GTX and it will work well with the Q6600.

I went ahead with the 560Ti, thanks for the recommendations. Can just about double my settings in Crysis (original) and runs like cream.

idk if 560 will be bottlenecked, but it's a great card to go with, probably they are "a bit" over 200$ *213$ AR cheapest , 230$ AR 2. cheapest and then 250+*
