Hello,
I currently have the Gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3 motherboard and i want to upgrade my graphics card. I built this computer myself and the card I'm looking at is the Asus 570. The game i play is World of Warcraft so i dont need to much power from my gpu, however the nvidia 520 I have now surly does not cut it. My question is will my motherboard + my intel i5k 2500(3.4ghz) bottleneck and hold back my whole system and also do i need to buy a gtx 570 that only takes up 2 slots on the back of my motherboard instead because this Asus gpu takes up 3. keep in mind i have a wireless card for my internet so if you take a look at the board on google or something you could probably help me by telling me where you would suggest putting everything. I also have 8g of ddr3 ram which im happy with along with my 680 watt power supply. please provide me with all the help and tips you can, Im a young kid looking to upgrade my system so I could use some help from everyone

Thanks!!!

You will be fine with it, you have plenty of power and you have absolutely NO bottlenecks.

The motherboard is very good you don't need to upgrade, and in the future you can SLI Gtx 570's. But id recommend a faster single gpu anyway.

but you agree that a 570 will be fine for now. i can spen $250 to $300 or a little over unless there is a significant reason to buy a more expensive card

In a week or two the gtx 660ti is gonna be on sale for $300 it is more powerful than a gtx 580 and consumes less power.

If I had $300 to spend I would invest in the gtx 660ti.
