Yes i know i should be rocking an i5, however i managed to pick up the 8120 for $150 so i figured it was worth a shot, anyways my current specs are as follows.

AMD FX-8120 at 4.0 ghz
8 gigs DDR3 1600 Kingston HyperX memory
Asus micro ATX MB (can't remember model number off the top of my head)
Crucial 256GB M4 SSD
EVGA 460 GTX 256 bit Fermi 1GB

My monitor is 1080p so i was wondering if a 670 GTX would be bottlenecked and if my money would be better served settling for a ATI 7870.

Currently I play Battlefield 3, League of Legends, Skyrim, and god willing on the 15th Diablo 3

You should be fine with either card, the GTX670 performing better!

At clock speeds like that, there won't be issues regarding bottleneck, so you should be fine with it either a GTX670 or a HD 7870.

If you've got the money, I'd definitely get a GTX670.
