Hello Forum, im thinking about getting a new GPU and so far top on my list is the http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=72771 (upgrading from a Sapphire 6970). Im just wondering will I have to upgrade my system to limit bottlenecking? i7 920 at 3.8ghz , GIGAByte ex58-ud5 and 12 gb 1333mhz RAM.


Also will the card work with my older motherboard? If not I might have to upgrade my CPU/Mobo aswell.

Thanks


EDIT: Im upgrading cause I want to start recording video.

Yes, you have psu for that card, a mobo with a pcie 2.0 slot x16, performance vs 3.0 slot is null.
And no bottleneck with that cpu.
It's a beast of a card, although i would've prefer the 670 evga ftw or asus dcuii.

ok Thanks!, Im looking for performance and how loud it is! the Zotac card will not make any noise change from my build now. I have a aftermarket GPU fan installed atm.
