GTX670 and Core 2 Quad Q6600

So ive finally got the money for a new graphics (Time to part with the trusty 8800GTX). Ive seen really good reviews about the gtx 670 and looking at getting one.

Heres my system specs:

Core 2 Quad Q6600 overclocked at 3.24Ghz
2x2GB Corsair XMS 2 DDR2 Ram (900mhz 5-5-5-17)
Corsair TX550M power supply
Gigabyte G31M-2SL Motherboard
128Gb Crucial M4 SSD
2TB WD Black

So my main question is, will the GTX670 be bottle necked my my cpu etc? Or should i save a few dollars and get the GTX660Ti?

Thanks for your help

    The GTX670 won't let you down. You may start to see your CPU bottleneck in some games that are CPU intensive, but if it wasn't a problem before, you should be fine.
  3. You will be bottlenecked. The old quads are generations behind anything new. I'd get a new CPU + MOBO before a GPU.
