I have a core i5 2320 at 3.0 ghz. I usually upgrade my gpu every year, to one under 150w and under $250. Right now I have a gtx 660.

You might have a slight drop off at the 670, 7970 or 680 but they'd still give an increase over they're lower models. Also I believe there is a way to keep the boost at 3.3Ghz regardless of usage. clutchc a c 123 U Graphics card December 7, 2012 1:30:34 AM The Core i5-2xxx is such a strong CPU, that you can choose any gfx card you can afford and not be hindered by CPU bottle neck... at least not enough to worry about.
