I have mine paired with a GTX680 but a GTX660/660Ti should be more than powerful enough. obsama1 a b à CPUs September 24, 2012 9:40:02 PM 1150 is still a long ways off. It will be out next Apr./March. Performance will increase, but the 3570K will still play any game just as well as the next-gen chips. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
