Can my system handle a GTX 660?

Hi,
I am about to buy my very first GPU :D have been waiting for a long time. I will most certainly buy a GTX 660. But I am not sure if its the right one for my system.

My system specs:

AMD phenom 955BE
Gigabyte 880gm ud2h
Corsair vx 550
G.skill ripjaws 2x2gb 1333mhz

I am afraid that my cpu will bottleneck the gpu. I will be playing games at the res 1920x1080. Also I will be playing Skyrim with lots of mods (30 plus) So should I go for this card? Can it handle Skyrim with lots of mods especially when I'll be playing it at ultra settings?
Thanks

    Skyrim is more CPU dependant than most other games, but the 955 is a good gaming CPU. The 660 is a nice choice of GPU to go with it.
  2. @Herr_Koos: GTX 660 it is then, thanks. Will I need any cables or plugs or anything to connect the gpu to my mobo, I am asking because of the mobo being so old.
  3. One PCIe x16 slot on the mobo, and 1x6pin power connector from the power supply. That should do it.
  4. Ok thanks.
