I'm going to buy gtx 670
And my cpu is intel core 2 duo e4400 clock at 2ghz (overclocked at bios to 2.41GHZ)

If this processor bottlenecks me. can you guys suggest a motherboard and processor that can fit on that gtx 670. GUYS JUST A CHEAP, NOT ACTUALLY CHEAP JUST FIND ME A PERFECT MOBO AND PROCESSOR

yes there will be an huge bottleneck.:( 

can you sell that whole system and buy a new one if yes then what will be the max budget?

if you go with gtx 670 with this cpu then bottleneck bottleneck and only bottleneck so tell me do you wanna upgrade your whole system if yes then tell us your max budget so we can suggest you best system depending on your budget which will be good with gtx 670 and will last for a long time

Yes that CPU is too weak for that Graphics card.

Personally I would go with either Sandy bridge or Ivy bridge depending on the price difference where you live. That's either a Z68 or Z77 motherboard and either a 2500K or 3570K CPU

Give us an online shop you can use and we can link to options.

My budget would be around $450-470 That budget doesn't include the gtx 670. It's already been purchase

Ofcourse...bottleneck happens almost in all pc...it is caused by inadequate pairing of graphics card and the processor.....but in your case you will experience only a few amount of fps drop say 5 to 8 fps(maybe 10)..any dual core with decent amount of frequency is ok..(single cores are worse)..i've test it on Crysis 2(Gamer settings at 1280x720) and battlefield 3(Med/High at 1280x720) with dual core 2160 1.80ghz and core i3 with 9800gt...not much difference in fps..quite the same i should say..

Dual core 2160 1.80ghz
Crysis 2= 35-45 avg
Battlefield 3= 25-35 avg

core i3
Crysis 2= 40-58 avg
Battlefield 3= 40-50 avg(sometimes 35-40)

So with your gtx 670 you'll get better performance...your processor is still fine....but if your keen on upgrading then go for core 2 duo e7500...price at $120...
