My Computer's Sandy Bridge I3-2105

Hello, I have a sandy Bridge Core i3-2105. I am looking into updating my system as a gaming rig. I am ordering a Gigabyte GTX 670 and I was curious if my processor can keep up with all of the modern day games with that particular GPU? I have an 850W PSU and 8 Gigs of Ram and am running windows 8 64bit. I am hoping to be able to run all my games and games comming out over the next year on ultra on a single monitor at1080p, will my processor be able to handle this?

  1. yes it can keep up with that gpu, except a quadcore with a more moderate gpu would be a smarter upgrade.

    whats ur budget?
