  1. everything in your system looks fine for now...if it is games that you intend to play.
    I suggest you go get the 680

    Your CPU is just fine, however you're suffering a nasty GPU-based bottleneck. An i7-870 will not top out in the gaming arena even with a GTX 680 and even if the game is CPU-intensive as any Core architecture can handle it. A CPU upgrade will help your overall performance, however, in other CPU-intensive applications.
