Hello,

I'm thinking of buying the new GTX 680 in about 2 months. But should my i7 870 @ 2.93 Ghz (Turbo Boost enabled) bottleneck the GTX 680?
Please let me know :) 

Regards,
Brian

Nah, you shouldn't have to overclock, turbo boost isnt a bad idea tho

Should be fine, though you can very easily get an extra 1ghz out of that CPU. My i5 750 has been at 4ghz for a long time now.
