Im wondering if I can support a upgrade from 8800GT to a GTX650 Ti. My specs are as follows, 8GB DDR2 RAM, AMD Phenom X4 @ 2.3GHz 400W PSU with 16 Amps per 12V Rail.

I think the processor and ram will be a bottle neck but only slightly. What does everyone else think? Any help is appreciated.

The ram will bottleneck a fair bit, overall performance-wise, but it should't be too horrible.

The DDR2 RAM on my 680i does not seem to be "bottlenecking" the two GTX560Ti's that I'm running in it, do you have any evidence to back up that statement?

I just noticed the GTX 650 Ti is PCI 3.0. I belive the 8800GT is 2.1. Do they have PCI 2 versions?
