Which one of these cards are better for gaming? I will be playing Battlefield 3 at 1920x1080 and I'm hoping to get 45+fps whilst playing multiplayer on either 32,48 or 64 player maps i will probably be playing on either high or medium settings. I am using an Intel Core i3 2100. I know that my CPU won't cope as well as an i5 on 64 player servers. If if got the 660 will it bottleneck my cpu? I am using a 500w psu so hopefully it should be able to power either of these cards.

Your help is appreciated.

Many thanks

Well unfortunately that is not a good power supply Cooler Master eXtreme (only use 75% of labeled wattage)Tier 4 - Not Recommend for stressful situations. May not be able to put out full rated power above room temperature, and may slightly fail to meet ATX specs.

Your psu is fine. I am using my fsp 500watt aurum gold with a gtx 560 dcu2. my 560 can play high settings at 1080p but it will not be a perfect 60. It can do medium though. For your solution, go for the gtx 660. Tests prove that it is better and it has better support.
