So with my system below.. how much of a difference will i see if i got the gigabyte 670?
I'm mostly playing Arma 2 with the occasional Skyrim, Assassins, and BF3. I'm upgrading for Arma 3 and I' hoping to get frames averaging above 30 although i feel the only thing weighing me down is my AMD phenom.
BF3 gives me pretty decent fps but Arma is more cpu demanding huh...
i play at 1080 and high settings w some details at medium but i try to stay at high.
also i was gearing toward the Gigabyte because of higher stock clocks.
i don't OC and probably wont for awhile bc i have never done it.
obviously there will be a huge difference i'm betting but would my phenom hold me back from true power of the 670?

forgot your build :P
That card should work very well - your cpu will also OC reasonably well - read a guide & try it. I'm jealous - I would love a GTX670. BTW his set-up is in his member config -Bruce

ohh now its shows up.. probably cause i wasn't signed in while typing the post
A GTX 670 will run about 100-150% I believe, and if Arma is more CPU demanding than OC might be your only option. Listen to dish_moose and try it, or you can pay someone to OC it for you. Your choice, and have fun with your new GTX 670. =)
