Is a gtx 670 a waste on my current system?

My system would be the following

AMD Phenom x4 965be
Gigabyte 880ga-ud3h
8gb kingston value ddr3
60gb ocz agiity 3
modxstream pro 500W
Gigabyte gtx 670

I know that I may have to upgrade my psu to a 600w.

My question is whether a gtx 670 would be bottlenecked on my current setup, I currently have a 6870 and was going to upgrade to a hd7950 but my main game is bf3 and the gtx 670 has such higher benchmarks that the 50 extra dollars seems worth it.

    it will bottleneck but not that bad if you could overclock that cpu to around 3.6-4ghz. Its not a bad cpu you have to be honest.

    Either way, the gtx670 would be a better choice over the hd7950, and your current psu will be fine for the gtx670 since it actually draws less power than even a gtx560 ti.

    Just get the gtx670 and see how it goes.
  2. It wouldnt be that bad, the 965 is still viable. Just bump up the overclock a bit. May as well get the 670. Chances are that you would upgrade the processor before the card, so when you do that you can just re-use the card.
  3. Without the monitor information, I have no idea. The amount of graphics power you need is more directly tied to the monitor resolution and refresh rate than anything else.
