Will two GTX 670s bottleneck an i3 2120 at stock? My resolution is 1920*1080.

I tried to look at comparable benchmarks but because the i3-2120 is old, the games it was reviewed on is not the same as in the latest GPU's. Therefore i quote no hard evidence but I would say it may.

But in my opinion, if you are already spending on 2x670, why not spend a few more $ to get the i5-3570K/2500K or even i7-3770K?

+1 Agreed 100%. Just get an i5 or i7 if you're spending that kind of money on GPU's. My best guess is that, yes, a 2120 will slightly bottle neck SLI 670's, but by how much, I'm not sure.

Thanks guys for your replies! I might upgrade to the i5 at the least then, I'd imagine it'd last a bit longer than the i3 too (performance wise).
