Hi im building my second rig and i was looking for some advice on a good video card that wont bottle neck an I5-3570k processor at default speeds. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking about pairing 2 of these (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009KUT30E/ref=as_li_s...) together. Thanks!

Just get a GTX 670.
The gtx 670 will cost about the same as 2 gtx 650 ti's, it will perform about the same, use less power, won't have micro-stuttering, will work in all games with out issues(vs some games not working with crossfire/sli), and you can SLI them later if you need more GPU power.

Get a Radeon hd 7970 or HD 7970 GHz which comes with 3 free games. Radeon hd 7970 vanilla is quite a bit better and can compare to GTX 680 now

There are no current video cards that are able to bottleneck a 3570K.

my budget is around $350.... the link was the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti, and is there a difference in how amd's gpu's work with intels cpu

I agree with Deemo13, it's the CPU that might bottleneck the performance of the card, and an Intel Core i5-3570K won't hold back any single video card out there.

In fact, it's Tom's own recommendation: Best Gaming CPU: $200 And UP (Oct 2012)

The 650Ti would not be my recommendation. For $350 you can get a much better card.

AMD works fine with Intel.

No difference in how amd's gpu's work with intel cpus... For $350 you can get a gtx 670 or for a little less you could get a 7950 and if you are lucky you can find some 7970's for around that price. If it was me i would get a gtx 670 unless you can find a 7970 in that price range.

Seriously, you can very well get a much better card for 350$
I would also side with an ATI Card right now, seeing on how they are dropping in price fairly fast, it would be wise to buy a 78XX-79XX series card now, and then buy another in the next price drop so you can get crossfire, if you want to do that, I would do a bit more research on which ones have Micro stuttering issues.

He was saying gtx 650 Ti in SLI for 350 not just one of them. For $350 your choices are pretty much gtx 670, 7950, or a 7970 that is on sale.

Hmm newegg says 3 game bundle i didn't look into it past that, you might be right and they are wrong idk.

The offer is pretty confusing really... so do you only get to pick one of those games? it says the value is $49.99, you click on that "gift" and it says 4 in 1 , and lists 4 games, yet newegg says 3 free games with it. A bit confusing.
