If it doesn't what brand of 670 would you recommend?

If it does what would be the highest card within the nVidia brand that you would recommend and what brand?

More about will bottlenecked 4170 8ghz
  1. Yes it will my friends does
  2. yes it will be bottlenecked, but should still run very well. You can remove the bottleneck by adding AA and increasing resolution to have better image quality.

    A GTX670 will give you better performance than, for instance a GTX660. Always. There really is no such thing as a bottleneck here. Some games will be cpu bound, so the added graphics capability of a top end card will not be apparent, and commensurate with the added cost. A better card will give you better minimum frame rates, and the option for more eye candy.
    If budget is not an issue, buy the strongest card your wallet and psu will allow.

    But for balance in a new build, plan on spending about twice the cost of your CPU on the graphics card.

    I happen to like EVGA support and their direct exhaust coolers.

    For your $120 cpu, look for a $240 graphics card like this EVGA GTX 660 FTW Signature 2

    For $370, you could buy this EVGA GTX 670 FTW

    So would you recomend the 660 then? Because I haven't really a price range, just best performance/price I guess like everyone else would like.
    And ya the EVGA 670 is the one I was looking at as well.
